A horror podcast

Do you like scary movies? Well good news, because “they’re heeere” with this horror-loving podcast, produced in Melbourne, Australia and with guests from around the world.

Your host, Damien O’Meara is joined each week by a guest who brings a horror movie for discussion, dissection and classification on the Camp-Scary scale (divine camp to pure terror).

Along the way we talk about what we love, what we hate and why horror is the way it is. The horror podcast is peppered with a light touch of film theory, film history and celebration and critical discussion of the genre that makes us hug ourselves even tighter.

Turn off the lights and pour a wine, it’s time to get scared… And remember, don’t scream! They’ll hear you…
