Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror



There’s a good chance you might not have seen the brilliantly terrifying film “Safe” — but it’s time to discover this 90’s masterpiece.


On this episode of The Final Girl on 6th Ave, host Carolyn Smith-Hilmmer takes a deep dive into the relentlessly unnerving 1995 psychological drama film Safe, hailed as one of the best films of the 90s. A terrifying feminist film about disease, toxic self-help culture, and the horrors of modern healthcare, it’s more relevant today than when it was first released. – Stephanie (Editor-in-Chief)


Psychological? Environmental? Thriller? Drama? There is no one right way to describe this unique indie film from the incredibly talented Todd Haynes. Whatever you take away from this film will be the thing that scares you the most. Truly atmospheric, SAFE (1995) is a masterpiece of the hollow lives many of us live.




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.
