IT (2017)
Ghouls are revisiting the first film they ever covered, IT (2017) but this time more purposefully. IT is about far more than a scary clown monster but rather is about coping with childhood trauma. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-ghouls-next-door/support

Coraline
As part of our the Kids Are Alright series, we talk about the spunky little girl who just wanted to be loved, Coraline. How do kids manifest their emotions when their parents just absolutely suck? We don't blame Coraline for wanting to run away to Other Mother but we do question the things done to our beloved Wybe.  --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-ghouls-next-door/support

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
The Ghouls are discussing the Chosen One trope and offer impassioned criticism on one of their least favorite Chosen characters, Sabrina. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a show that promises intersectional feminism but severely fails to deliver. What makes a Chosen One special? What other Chosen Ones have succeeded or failed in garnering compassion from viewers. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-ghouls-next-door/support

Host
Shudder's quarantine-made film, Host, twists our virtual safe haven into a nightmare. Ever the meta podcast, the Ghouls are recording their episode remotely. Found Footage films have always had a great knack for turning our reliance on technology into something to fear. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-ghouls-next-door/support

Midsommar
Ghouls revisit the cult fave, Midsommar to explore how white supremacy, horror tropes, disability, and mental illness are used in the film. What does it mean that horror in white-centric communities can operate in broad daylight? It's hard to hate a film that hateful people hate. The enemy of my enemy is my friend, after all.  --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-ghouls-next-door/support
