Nolan is joined by Emily von Seele, Paul Farrell, and Philip Yount — as well as special guest Heather Wixson from Daily Dead — to discuss Wes Craven’s Scream 4 (2011) and Tyler MacIntyre’s Tragedy Girls (2017). The gang catches up on recent horror releases, new discoveries, and rewatches before being targeted by two pairs of sociopathic teenagers intent on killing their way to fame and fortune.

It’s no secret that 2017 was a great year for film, and horror, in particular, had more than its share of moments to shine. In a year that brought us such amazing films as The Girl With All The Gifts, Creep 2, and The Transfiguration — among others — it was difficult to pare this list down to just ten entries. But I somehow managed to do it. In no particular order — because getting this list down to ten films was hard enough — here are my favorites of 2017. May 2018 bring us even more.

2017 has been a year filled with real horror. We are constantly reminded of the racism, rape culture, and male violence that continue to fester in our nation. Fortunately for this snowflake of a cuck, there were amazing horror films to escape into. Directors continue to produce strong perspectives in horror cinema, setting up the 2010s to be a revitalization of the genre. From blockbusters like IT to movies that push the genre forward like Get Out and mother!, this year ran the gamut and did so with some amazing additions to the horror family.
On a very special bonus episode, Nolan is joined by William Mahaffey, Festival Director of the upcoming Knoxville Horror Film Fest, which is running from Friday, October 20th through Sunday, October 22nd at the Regal Downtown West Cinema 8 in Knoxville, Tennessee (tickets available here). We discuss what goes into putting on a film festival and what makes KHFF unique, as well as detailing the festival’s impressive lineup of feature films.
