October 2020 Book Pick
Read our October “Bedrosian Bookclub” pick with us!
Joan Samson’s The Auctioneer is a classic of rural American horror. The novel has been compared to Shirley Jackson’s “The Lotter,” and inspired Stephen King’s Needful Things. Travel back to the 70s with us to a farming community in New Hampshire. We couldn’t put it down.
Us (dir. Jordan Peele)
From the mind the brought us Get Out, is the new film scaring audiences across the states. In Jordan Peele’s latest film, Us, doppelgängers menace a family trying to enjoy their summer vacation. But … as in Get Out, everything isn’t quite that simple. Warning: Spoilers!
What mirror is Peele holding up for us now?
Gasp! The female body! So gross, so frail and faulty! We might all have loved Anne Elizabeth Moore’s BODY HORROR, listen to the #bookclub #podcast today! Host Lisa Schweitzer is joined by Marisa Turesky, Chris Redfearn, and Aubrey Hicks.
Get Out follows a young African-American photographer on a visit to his white girlfriend’s parents’ home. The tag line sums up the deep horror of the film, “Just because you’re invited, doesn’t mean you’re welcome.” The film is funny, scary, and has sparked conversations (and even a viral challenge) throughout the country.
