This week on Blumhouse’s Shock Waves Podcast, co-host Rebekah McKendry gathers a panel of amazing ladies from the horror industry to discuss witches and witchcraft, examining the topic from childhood perceptions to portrayals in contemporary media. The group includes Mali Elfman (producer of BEFORE I WAKE and FUN SIZE HORROR), actress and Shock Waves regular Brea Grant, actress and comic book writer Amber Benson (who horror fans will recognize as Tara from BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER), and diehard horror fan Ciara Aumentado (who also happen to be Ryan Turek’s fiancé).
Join your hosts Rob Galluzzo, Elric Kane and Rebekah McKendry as they talk about all the latest horrors! First up, the entire gang discusses this week's surprise Netflix premiere of THE CLOVERFIELD PARADOX! Rob raves about MAYHEM and HAUNTERS: THE ART OF THE SCARE. Elric reports back on ICE CREAM MAN and Mariano Baino's DARK WATERS. Bekah checked out the horror anthology ASYLUM, as well as the original JURASSIC PARK. Then we welcome to the show the filmmakers behind TRAGEDY GIRLS, director Tyler MacIntyre and writer Chris Lee Hill! TRAGEDY GIRLS is a new cult classic in the vein of HEATHERS in which two serial-killer obsessed teens use the real life terrors inflicted on a town to boost their social media popularity. It's a biting satire loved by the whole Shock Waves crew, and yet Rob was troubled by his feelings after the film. The filmmakers attempt to psychoanalyze Rob to get to the bottom of his complex feelings on TRAGEDY GIRLS! Kick back, relax, and join the conversation!
