This week on Shock Waves, join your hosts Rob Galluzzo, Elric Kane, Rebekah McKendry, Ryan Turek, and special guest co-host Brea Grant (BEYOND THE GATES, HALLOWEEN 2) as the group analyze social commentary and political horror in the genre! But first, the latest horrors! Bekah checked out the 80's horror anthology DEADTIME STORIES and Ed Wood's ORGY OF THE DEAD. Rob delves into the questionable with DRIVE-IN MASSACRE and THE ZODIAC KILLER. Ryan talks about THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS and revisits TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE BEGINNING and CREEPSHOW 2. In honor of Bill Paxton, we rewatched FRAILTY. And Elric reports back on GET OUT, which leads us into this week's topic. 

The gang look at social commentary and underlining political messages in horror, whether unintentional or overt. Starting with Adam Simon's excellent documentary which tackles this subject in THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE. To everything from the original GODZILLA, to THE TWILIGHT ZONE, to the films of George Romero and John Carpenter and more. Is all art in a sense political, but not necessarily specifically about politics? Kick back, relax, and join the conversation!
