I loved getting to do something totally different for this episode. When I started thinking about it and decided on a “IT’S ALIVE!” header I knew I probably needed a generic “monster” and zombies made the most sense for New Orleans. After those two parts were decided on, the rest fell into place in less than 20 minutes.
What horror films should be added to the AFI’s signature list? Do films like The Sixth Sense or Psycho count as horror? Paul and Amy debate these questions live from the Overlook Film Festival in New Orleans, with special guests Sam Zimmerman from Shudder and Phil Nobile Jr. from Fangoria! They ask whether fast zombies are superior to slow zombies, discuss when meta-horror films become too meta, and wonder whether a horror film needs to be a little bit trashy.
