Filmmaker and horror academic Kristina Leath Malin joins us for our 42nd trip to The Circus! Topics discussed include Kristina hosting screenings of Pam Grier’s Coffy and other cult classics; making One For The Road which is one of Stephen King’s “dollar babies”; her nonfiction work on My Final Girl which focuses on black women in 70s horror; differences between how black and white women are presented in scary movies; partnering with local organizations like BRIC; and we all play an educational round of Uncle Sean’s Turbo Teen Trivia, which somehow was in honor of Superbowl Sunday, the day on which this was recorded.
