In this installment they interview Lucky McKee, director of May, The Woman, and All Cheerleaders Die. McKee is also known for his contributions to Tales of Halloween, Deathcember, and Darlin’. The interview will be available on the Horror Makes Us Happy website, and all major podcasting platforms.
The meat of each interview covers their guest’s exposure to horror media, from childhood through adulthood, with an emphasis on digging up the deeper psychological reasons that guest, as an individual, loves horror.
Cohosts Steve Becker and Chris Whitman hope that after interviewing enough horror fans some interesting trends will arise, ones that could be handed back to mainstream academia. As they say in their excerpts on their Youtube channel, "There are good reasons for enjoying horror – but what are those reasons? The real reasons? Not the ones horror fans learn to make people leave them alone."
