Ep431: Scuola Argento: Hello, TENEBRAE, My Old Friend

Today, The Kicking the Seat Podcast enjoys a summer school edition of "Scuola Argento" as Ian and guests Aaron Christensen of Horror 101 with Dr. A.C. and Bryan Martinez of the YouTube series The Giallo Room talk about 1982's giallo masterpiece, Tenebrae!

The guys spare a lot of the gory details, focusing instead on the themes that put this slasher/mystery so far ahead of its time. From its treatment of gender identities on- and off-screen to explorations of the artist's responsibility to his or her audience, there's a lot more to gape at here than blood-splattered breasts.

As a bonus, Ian interviews horror devotee Jon Kitley about his brand-new book, Discover the Horror, in which he talks about his lifelong devotion to the genre, and shares his thoughts on its varied films and fandom.

Episode 431 looks absolutely killer in red high heels!
