Horror has always been an outlet for political discussions during a time of crisis. This includes the decades-long abortion debate. The Dogs look at how other cultures have discussed abortion through film and how American horror responded to Roe v Wade in the 70s.

CARRIE (1976) / THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE: Monstrous Feminine

CARRIE (1976) / THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE: Monstrous Feminine

July 7, 2022

Female power? Women having… a voice?? They must be the spawn of the devil! It’s an important time to talk about a woman’s autonomy and her right to choose. But unfortunately, it’s always been a controversial topic. 

The Cadaver Dogs analyze two horror films from two different decades and discuss how they portray the monstrous female. We also play our favorite game: Is This Film Feminist? First up is the original CARRIE (directed by Brian de Palma) which came out during the women’s lib movement of the 1970s. How does this film reflect the current cultural climate? Did Carrie choose to become a monster or was she f’d anyway? Then, we look at THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE (directed by Scott Derrickson) which came out 30 years later. How did the courtroom treat a misunderstood woman? And, hello! Is the movie religious propaganda?? (Based on the real possession case of Anneliese Michel)

We also diverge into filmmaker conversations about what makes good characters and why vampires work so well in media. Better grab your garlic t-shirt for this episode, buddy!

Woman v Devil is a common trope in horror. But what is the inspiration behind this trope and does it successfully represent the female plight? The Dogs compare the women's lib movement of the 70s to the early 00s feminism wave by studying how the she-devil became an allegory for women's autonomy in a patriarchal world.

IDENTITY / INCIDENT IN A GHOSTLAND: Stranger Than Reality

IDENTITY / INCIDENT IN A GHOSTLAND: Stranger Than Reality

June 2, 2022

**SPOILERS AHEAD**

How many times has this happened to you: You pull up to a motel, or visit your mother after publishing your latest best-seller. Then some raving lunatic comes along, while you’re just minding your own business, and tries to convince you that everything you’ve experienced is a fabrication, a mechanism for coping with the terrible tragedy you experienced as a child. Do you break from reality, live in your comfortable fiction, or do you march forward and brave the truth?

While Rob plans his wedding, David and Devin dissect James Mangold’s IDENTITY (2003) and Pascal Laugier’s INCIDENT IN A GHOSTLAND (2018) (also known simply as GHOSTLAND). We’re talking plot twists, Dissociative Identity Disorder, exploitation, and great performances all around. (R.I.P. Ray Liotta)

Sometimes, we tell ourselves stories to escape the cruelty of the real world. But what happens when the stories take over and we can no longer tell the difference between what's real and what's our own mind playing tricks on us? The Dogs cover escapism through storytelling, dissociation, and dissociative identity disorder as seen in these films.

HEREDITARY / PET SEMETARY (1989): Grief and Belief

HEREDITARY / PET SEMETARY (1989): Grief and Belief

May 5, 2022

There’s no wrong way to grieve, but there certainly is an unhealthy way. Say… calling on the power of demons/unknown cosmic forces to bring the dead back to life only to have them go on a murder spree. That’s pretty unhealthy, don’t you think?

The Cadaver Dogs take a trip to the afterlife in this episode as they walk through the many examples of grief in two horror film staples. First up is the original Ari Aster movie HEREDITARY (starring Toni Colette, Gabriel Byrne, Milly Shapiro, Alex Wolff, and indie film bae Ann Dowd.) We tackle the origins of the demon Paimon, voyeurism through filmmaking, misconceived spiritualism, and the concept of tragedy. Then, we take a not so big leap to Mary Lambert’s PET SEMETARY (1989) adapted from Stephen King’s novel. The dogs offer a fresh perspective on industrialism, gender representation of yore, Native American burial ground tropes, and just how much parents royally f*** up. Oh, and nominate Toni Collette, you cowards.

History has shown us that when humans mourn a loved one, they tend to turn to the paranormal to find hope in an after life. And while there's no right or wrong way to grieve, there's certainly an unhealthy way... The Dogs will explore the representations of grief in the hit horror film Hereditary and the original Stephen King adaptation of Pet Semetary. And yes, we all agree that Toni Collette should have gotten that Oscar.
