Episode 53: Kay Lynch of Salem Horror

In our newest episode, we sit down with Kay Lynch, the founder of Salem Horror, to discuss the upcoming Salem Horror Fest, a celebration of the macabre being held this fall in our haunted hometown, Salem, Massachusetts. We talk about the appeal of horror movies, explore their value in expressing societal fears in turbulent times, and comment on Salem's reputation as a Halloween hot spot. We also touch on some of the films screening at the festival, which range from classic chillers such as Night of the Living Dead to modern horrors such as Get Out. Warning: Contains explicit language and childhood horror movie trauma.

Note: This interview was conducted in 2017. Since that time Kay has publicly announced her change of name and pronouns.
