In this fun diversion from serious witchcraft, Laine and Cory discuss their favorite films in the supernatural and folk horror genres. We also kick off a “Halloween in July” storytelling series (albeit somewhat by accident).

This episode primarily features a discussion of our favorite horror films, some of which are:
- The Paranormal Activity franchise
- The Blair Witch Project
- Nightmare on Elm Street
- The Shining
- Alien & Aliens
- The Wicker Man
- A Field in England
- The Exorcist
- Rosemary’s Baby
- Children of the Corn
- Drag Me to Hell
- House of the Devil
- White Zombie
- The Universal monster movies (Wolf Man, Dracula, Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, etc.).
You can also check out George A. Romero’s classic zombie film, Night of the Living Dead, for free at the internet Archive.
There is also a segment near the end which involves Ambrose Bierce’s “An Inhabitant of Carcosa,” which you can find in the book, The Weiser Book of Horror and the Occult.
Cory will be at two upcoming events, and will likely be holding talks/discussions at both of them, which you might find interesting:
- Philadelphia Pagan Pride Day (Saturday, September 5th, 2015)
- Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride Day (Saturday, October 10th, 2015) – Featuring the luminous S.J. Tucker!

One thought on “Podcast 78 – Summer of Horror”
A little late on commenting, but I loved this change from the norm. I completely agree with Laine about “The Shining.” Nicholson is a great actor but not the right pick for this character.
I always thought the Wicker Man remake confused “The Wicker Man” and “The Dark Secret of Harvest Home,” but now I’ll have to check out the movie that Cory mentioned.
Always enjoy the podcast!
