A searing and haunting social satire about the high cost of silence in the face of evil, “Speak No Evil” is a film you want to talk about.
On this episode of The Final Girl on 6th Ave, host Carolyn Smith-Hilmmer takes a deep dive into the 2023 Fangoria Chainsaw Award-winning film Speak No Evil — an absolutely chilling international feature about complacency and the danger of keeping quiet and ignoring unnerving red flags. This Danish psychological horror film by Christian Tafdrup (from a screenplay he co-wrote with his brother Mads) is a provocative social satire that is likely to haunt you. It’s streaming now on Shudder. – Stephanie (Editor-in-Chief)
SHOW NOTES FROM HOST CAROLYN SMITH-HILLMER:
I do find it humorous that, as a podcast that only seems to talk about evil things, I would cover a spectacularly haunting film called “Speak No Evil”. Enjoy the ride with this one. Things are not always as they seem on the surface!
ABOUT THE SHOW:
The Final Girl on 6th Ave is a weekly show where host, Carolyn Smith-Hillmer, dissects an arthouse/elevated horror film. Each episode includes a detailed play-by-play of the film itself and a subsequent deep dive into the thematic elements and symbolism. Because elevated horror is sometimes viewed within the horror community as pretentious, Carolyn makes sure to use her down-to-earth tone and unique perspective to make these films less intimidating for the casual horror viewer and less ostentatious for the genre lover.

Poor Things (2023) is nothing short of a nightmare. Although it is typically described as a romance, a drama, and science fiction, all of those elements somehow come together to create the most beautiful nightmare you will ever witness.
