What Doesn't Kill Us

WHAT WE'VE BEEN WATCHING #6
We've survived a cruel summer (so far), and are back to discuss what we've been watching while on break. Noel talks about films that examine fraught father-daughter relationships (10 Cloverfield Lane, Don't Breathe, Train to Busan & The Host), and Monica (coincidentally) does the opposite, discussing an underappreciated woman-directed masterpiece from last year, Evolution, which is all about bizarre mother-son bonds. She also recommends some of the shorts in the all-woman directed anthology XX. Unsurprisingly we talk about gender, family, the future of horror, and other "state of the world" topics in that What Doesn't Kill Us way.

Special Topic: RAPE-REVENGE FILMS
We carefully discuss that most difficult of horror sub-genres, the rape-revenge film. We limit our discussion to the classics--I Spit On Your Grave, Last House on the Left, and the source for Last House, Bergman's Virgin Spring--as well as the newest variation, 2016's award-winning Elle. Noel has some questions about how rape works, and the womyn set him straight . . . Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, check us out on iTunes, SoundCloud and YouTube for the visual version.

Special Topic: ILLNESS & DISEASE IN HORROR
Inspired by our review of The Taking of Deborah Logan, in this episode of Special Topics we take a look at representations of illness and disease in horror films, both literal and metaphorical. We discuss a wide range of films, from Outbreak to May to The Babadook to The Shining to Donnie Darko to The Grapes of Death (best title ever) to The Silence of the Lambs vs. Manhunter, as well as obscure TV shows like The X-Files and Hannibal. Throw in some painful personal stories and references to about 52 other films, and we get a typically scintillating WDKU discussion.

Episode 13: THE VVITCH
It was inevitable--we had to tackle the 2015 art-house horror phenomenon that is Robert Eggert's 'New England Folktale' The Witch: "A family in 1630s New England is torn apart by the forces of witchcraft, black magic and possession." It went over well with 3 out of the 4 of us, but the naysayer's points are really ... trenchant! Comment, rate and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find us on YouTube as What Doesn't Kill Us, Facebook as Fight or Flight Network/What Doesn't Kill Us, and our blog (whatdoesntkilluspodcast.blogspot.com).

Episode 12: THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN
We tackle our first found-footage horror film, and, well . . . not everyone's convinced. We analyze Adam Robitel's 2014 The Taking of Deborah Logan: "An elderly woman battling Alzheimer's disease agrees to let a film crew document her condition, but what they discover is something far more sinister going on." The relationship between disease & horror, narrative & structure, improv & scripting are examined and argued over. Email us at email@example.com. Please comment, rate & subscribe. You can find us on YouTube as well. Music by Ken Kawamura again!

WHAT WE'VE BEEN WATCHING #4
On this episode of WWBW we talk about The Changeling, MirrorMask, The Experiment, Lo, The Devil's Carnival, Audrey Rose, Chloe, Experimenter, and more. We compare Jennifer Carpenter to Marsha Mason, Peter Sarsgaard to Ewan McGregor, and because this was recorded before his tragic passing, Monica waxes rhapsodic over up-and-comer Anton Yelchin. Watch us on YouTube and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sweet jams by Ken Kawamura.

Episode 11: MARTYRS
In this episode we tackle Pascal Laughier's notoriously brutal entry into the New French Extremity movement from 2008, Martyrs: "A young woman's quest for revenge against the people who kidnapped and tormented her as a child leads her and a friend on a terrifying journey into a living hell." Not everyone was so impressed! Our conversation gets more than a little crazed. Which might match the film quite well . . . Email us at email@example.com. Ken Kawamura provided the music.

Special Topic: THE HORROR OF FULL(ER) HOUSE!
Monica binge watches Fuller House, and suddenly everything good about her childhood goes up in flames . . . More music by Mr. Kawamura.

WHAT SCARES KRYSTAL ... AND WHY?
On this episode we find out what doesn't scare Krystal (sharks, serial killers), what does (demons, Bette Davis), and why she'll never watch Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire starring Gabourey Sidibe.
