This Place Scares Us - A Podcast


And Welcome to: This Place Scares Us

We are a podcast that talks about all of the things that scare us.  Come to us to hear all of the strange, disturbing reasons why literature, movies, serial killers, and strange events make your skin crawl and your spine tingle.  Also, enjoy the strange forays into the unknown: Who and Why is Lee Iacoca(?), Billy Eichner fan-girling, repeatedly saying "Blessed Be", and oh so much more!

Thanks for checking us out!

Hello Dear Listeners,

Like a phoenix we have risen from the ashes of moving, learning new technology, and having a generally chaotic two months! But, WE ARE BACK!!  This is our first remotely recorded episode and it sounds a bit rough, but we've worked the bugs out and will have another episode out soon.

Its Spooktober and you know what that means!? Horror movies!! In this episode Katya and Laramie discuss the 1985 classic Fright Night directed by Tom Holland (not Spiderman Tom Holland).  This movie really is a window into so many things 80s: teen angst, vampires, rape culture, and queer subtext.  Katya and Laramie posit that Fright Night may be the best metaphor for sexual predators.

So join us as we take a walk down This Place Scares Us memory lane, discuss everything that has been happening in our lives and unpack a surprisingly complex movie from the 80s.  We've missed you and love you all so much!
