Sirens of Scream
We're halfway through October and loving every day of it, so what better time to talk about one of the best vampire stories ever to hit the comic book shelves? In this episode, we examine American Vampire Volumes 1 and 2, by Scott Snyder and Raphael Albuquerque, with stories by Stephen King in Volume 1. Just try to keep up.
This is the episode you've all been waiting for! It's definitely one of our favorites to create for you, because we not only get to jump start the Halloween season with tons of horror films, but we get just have some fun talking why we love them all. We've come up with a whole new list, no repeats from last year, and we can't wait to hear what you think of them!
We've all been talking about IT and our traumatizing childhood experiences with clowns, right? Do you remember our friend June Gregory who taught us about the history of horror tropes? Well, we're combining these things together and bringing back June, this time with a lesson on the history of creepy clowns! And of course we've also got a bundle of new recommendations for you, plus some extra links if you'd like to read more after the show about clowns.
We met some hilarious, smart, awesome new friends who also happen to be hosts of another horror podcast, called This Podcast is Haunted. We decided to get them on the show to talk about the silliness, frustration, bad jokes and late nights that make up the podcasting life. And, we've all brought you some new recommendations to enjoy!
We are all familiar with various classic fairy tales and fables that we began to hear as children: Snow White, Cinderella, The Pied Piper, etc. Many of these stories have been revived in the form of colorful and family friendly Disney films now, but most of these stories have much more adult themed roots, and this is what we're exploring for this episode. Grab your blanket and some tea and come cuddle up with us for some "scareytales".
The Sirens are taking on a pretty huge topic this time with our attempt to cut to the core of why we fear artificial intelligence. We dug in to both real life AI applications (and fears), as well as some our most influential pop culture examples. We've also got a ton of new recommendations for you to check out.
A lot of modern horror tropes can be traced back to ancient stories. In this episode, friend of the Sirens and lover of horror and history, June Gregory, teaches us all some fascinating historical horror facts!
With the recent release of The Mummy, the first in a series of new Universal monster movies, we felt inspired to talk about some of the best (and maybe a few of the worst) attempts at these characters in modern media. As always, we've also got some new recommendations for you, too!
Sierra is taking us on a trippy ride through some of the most infamous alien abduction and sighting stories in American history, including one of her own! Jackie and Melissa are sick (again!), but curled up in blankets and bringing a load of new recs for you.
It's our 1st birthday and we're partying hard by inviting a lineup of previous guests, listeners and friends on to the show with us! There will be tons of recommendations, talk of personal terrors and much reminiscing about our favorite moments of the past year.
