A PODCAST THAT GOES BEYOND HORROR MOVIES
That’s Dark is more than a scary movie podcast. Sure, every episode starts with film analysis, but we use horror movies to look at important issues, concerns and themes that are very real. So, That’s Dark is a cultural and philosophical podcast as well.
Horror movies, as a genre, might not accurately describe the films we watch. A lot of them have been called “extreme cinema.” What a scary term! But that’s the point of our podcast – we’re looking for the wildest, most unnerving and scariest movies we can find.
David and Pappy have been life-long horror fans. They’ve challenged each other with gore and uncomfortable subject matter, trying to get the other to say, “I’ve had enough.” But they’ve yet to find the movie to really shake them. And now they’re beyond watching your standard horror movie. So, the challenge of freaking each other out has gotten harder.
Enter Danny. Another close friend. Emotionally susceptible. Easily identifies with fictional characters. Trepidatious about certain horror movies. In other words, he’s the perfect friend for David and Pappy to challenge next.
Very self-aware of his own tendencies as a spectator, it’s hard to convince Danny to watch an “extreme” movie. In fact, the only way to get him to watch these movies was to tempt him with doing a podcast. Because Danny loves two things – movies and podcasts.
But out of this friendly, somewhat sadistic competition has come a podcast that goes beyond horror movies. Empathy, the representation of women, laughter, fear and genre are just a few of the subjects brought up by these films.
That’s Dark’s is where cinema, culture and philosophy meet. A podcast where gore and thoughtful conversation converge – where shock and laughter mix together.
