Nolan is joined by Emily von Seele, Ben McBride, Thomas Foster, and Philip Yount to discuss John Fawcett’s Ginger Snaps (2001) and Julia Ducournau’s Raw (2017). The group celebrates Women in Horror Month by recommending some of their favorite horror movies directed by women and shares recent horror discoveries before a monstrous, adolescent transformation drives a wedge between this (not quite) sisterhood.
