Our year-long project to update our top 100 Horror films is now complete! Now that we’ve got them all revealed, what changed from our 2018 list, and did we find any patterns or trends? The Scariest Things Podcast Team sat down to share our thoughts about how the list turned out. What we loved, what surprised us, and what we think will become of the list in the future. The curating of our list was the effort of many people, and it delivered a broad and diverse spectrum of the genre, from every age and every type of horror.

And, this extends naturally to their willingness for their horror movies going to extremes. So join us in extracting out what makes French Language Horror so potent in Episode 151!

The Scariest Things Podcast Episode 146: Frankenstein Movies

It’s Alive. It’s ALIVE! IT’s ALIIIIIVE!

At long last, The Scariest Things goes to the bedrock of horror movies. Frankenstein. So important, and yet, much like the Monster himself, much-maligned.

How does the story of Frankenstein stay relevant? Listen to the Scariest Things Episode 146 and find out!
