Writer and horror academic Dr. Alison Peirse returns to the pod to talk about the under-seen teen slasher starring Brittany Murphy, Cherry Falls (2000). We touch on how it upends slasher tropes with a killer that targets virgins, its troubled production history, the fashion and fringe choices (a lot of pleather) and its indirect influence on Malignant.

Produced and presented by Anna Bogutskaya


Music: "Slasher" by Karl Casey @ White Bat Audio
