Welcome to the Horror Lab Podcast, where we dissect the best in horror movies each week!

Horror movies are a great viewing experience--most are just downright fun to watch! But the best horror movies also communicate deep themes and ideas. Join Will and Chris each week as they explore the depth of horror movies, extract various themes, and discuss a theory or two!

In this episode, Will and Chris explore a terrific and DEEP horror movie--The Babadook! This is one of Chris' favorite horror movies, and even though it isn't (yet), it belongs in Will's T25 list. In a lot of ways, The Babadook embodies the premise of The Horror Lab--the best horror movies make us feel and explore uncomfortable themes, ideas, situations.

Join Will and Chris in the Horror Lab as they explore primary and secondary themes, the larger cultural impact of the film, and discuss the importance of representation in film.
