Join the Grue-Crew as they examine this iconic genre entry that lands near the top of many best-horror-films-of-all-time lists and countdowns. Will the film hold up today? Jeff, Chad, Daphne, and guest-host Doc Rotten will share their thoughts on that and much more, including controversies in making the film and those that have transpired since. The crew spends two hours exploring the cast, the locations and era, the production, the subtext, and the influences – and so much more. Truly, epic! Enjoy!

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era records a new episode every two weeks. Up next in their very flexible schedule, as chosen by Jeff, is The White Reindeer (1952, Valkoinen peura), a Finnish vampire movie (or is it a Finnish witch movie?) with frequent appearances by a white reindeer.
