Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


On this episode of the “Not Your Final Girl” podcast, we discuss flights of fright with a very special guest.

The Birds

THIS EPISODE: Birds from the Crypt w/ Carla Barrientos

It’s wall-to-wall Thrills, Chills, and Spills in this episode. And about a million crazy birds.

Ariel and Candace are talking to Hello Bakersfield host Carla Barrientos about a couple of good ol’ spook shows, Hitchcock’s classic The Birds, and EC Comics adaptation (and forerunner to the TV show that scared the shit out of Candace as a kid) Tales From the Crypt

Pull up a sarcophagus and turn on some ominous organ music, cause we’ve got prank addictions, hetero hijinks, literal poetic justice, a killer Santa (and no other mention of Christmas?), and a crypt keeper who isn’t gleeful about sentencing the damned to eternal torture. And if sometimes the characters behave as if they’ve never seen a horror movie? Give them a break, okay? It was a different time. 

Carla Barrientos

Carla Barrientos, a Bakersfield native, is a co-host of Hello Bakersfield, a podcast that explores the dynamic people, places, and culture of Bakersfield, California.
