We forego flowers and embrace the horror of motherhood, with a chilling look at “All That We Destroy” and “We Need to Talk About Kevin”.
THIS EPISODE: MOTHER’S DAY SPECIAL
We hope all our ghouls had an amazing Mother’s Day, and we’re excited to bring you a special episode dedicated to the amazing moms of horror.
We at Not Your Final Girl are keen to delve into some of the less palatable experiences of motherhood, such as when your kid just has extremely bad vibes. Candace and Ariel are talking about the violent and sci-fi tinged Into the Dark installation, All That We Destroy (2019), and the movie that inducted Tilda Swinton into horror mom-dom: We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011).
Aside from covering goo-based life forms, unsettlingly tiny shirts, people named Ezra, nature vs nurture, and possibly either communing with the dead or uploaded consciousness, we also get into our own personal childhood horror stories. Because we’ve all got ’em, don’t we? Hopefully, none are as bad as Kevin or Spencer in these films, but still, kids are a horror show on their own.
Also please, please if you have some dad-centered horror for us to cover for Father’s Day, hit us up. Not enough horror dads exist, and it’s a damn shame.
