episode 178: FFR 178: The People Under the Stairs with Special Guest Dave Proctor

We’re back from break, and just in time for spooky season! Joining Anita and Ebony is returning special guest—writer, mental health advocate, video game designer, and friend to Feminist Frequency—Dave Proctor, to take a look at Wes Craven’s somewhat bizarre entry to his horror empire, 1991’s The People Under the Stairs. This film was a divergence for the “Master of Horror” both in its tone and topic—a self-aware horror comedy dealing with disenfranchisement, white Christian moralism, and Reagan era social and economic politics in an utterly over-the-top way. Listen in to hear our take on the good, the bad, and where this movie fits into the horror genre as a whole.
