Current DJ: Heathen Disco with Doug Mosurock
En Attendant Ana Enter My Body (Lilith) from Juillet (Trouble in Mind) Add to Collection
George A. Romero. Wes Craven. John Carpenter. These three icons revolutionized the horror genre of cinema during the late 1960s and ’70s via films like Night of the Living Dead, The Hills Have Eyes, and Halloween — movies that were particularly attuned to the American zeitgeist at the time.
Why do many credit this trio of directors with ushering in a second “golden age” of horror? In what ways do we still feel their influence today? Returning as my guest is Kendall Phillips, a professor of communications at Syracuse University and the author of the new book Dark Directions: Romero, Craven, Carpenter, and the Modern Horror Film.
