A Frame Apart
About This Show
It’s Critic vs Screenwriter. Sometimes … maybe … kinda?
Welcome to A Frame Apart, the movie podcast from divergent perspectives under one roof. We’re your hosts, Ariel Fisher and Bob Barrow. Ariel’s a film critic and freelance journalist, and Bob’s a screenwriter. Each episode, we’ll take a look at two movies that have some sort of connection. Sometimes that connection will be obvious, and others not so much. On A Frame Apart, we aim to provide a variety of perspectives on cinema, not only from the standpoint of professionals on different sides of the camera, but as fans of media, pop culture enthusiasts, and lovers of cinema. We will speak passionately about subjects near and dear to us through film, and expound upon larger issues that permeate our cinematic culture and how we consume media. From horror to comedy, and everything in between, every great film is just a frame apart.

It's been swell, but Women in Horror Month is just about over. We're going out with a BANG! by looking at all three Slumber Party Massacre films. That's right, it's a First to Last! From the parody-laced origins of the first film written by feminist activist Rita Mae Brown to the less-than-stellar conclusion to the trilogy, we discuss everything these films have to offer - and trust us, there's plenty! So order a pizza, lock the garage door, and grab your favourite Playgirl ... just don't rip out the centerfold this time! It's time for a Slumber Party Massacre!
During the month, be sure to take a look at Ariel's (Afis8) Letterboxd list of female-directed horror films. It's at 136 right now - let's make those numbers climb! Send us a message or email with any suggestions not already on the list!

Fun on a Bun
This is smart and funny show that's only getting better! The hosts are knowledgeable, likeable, and have a great chemistry with one another. They review and compare excellent films with critical finesse and seamlessly inject humour throughout the program. I listen every week.

An excellent, fun show on movies!
I'm a little biased (I'm one of the hosts!) but we're very proud of A Frame Apart. It's a fun, upbeat podcast where we connect two seemingly different films across broader context and social dialogue. And our moms think we're cool, so there's that. Give it a listen!
