He Has His Father’s Eyes

Even with our current sloppy podcast schedule, we can’t not celebrate Halloween here at 101 Towers. So Lewis and Ian have donned their most terrifying and zeitgeist-y costumes (Lewis is a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat, and Ian is a Brexit) and settled down to watch Rosemary’s Baby. Considered by many as the greatest horrorContinue reading “He Has His Father’s Eyes”

After looking at horror in the 1950s with Night of the Demon and in the 1970s with The Wicker Man, we finish with what is considered a modern classic, 2007’s The Orphanage.Continue reading “One. Two.
