Good discussion of how horror relates to Christianity.

Subgenres of Horror: Natural, Monster, Supernatural

Is it OK for Christians to watch horror movies when the Bible says "fear not"?

29:59 Let's say I go and see Scary Movie, and I go home, I'm thinking about it, I'm worried that something's going to attack me at my house. Who am I going to turn to? Ghostbusters! No, not Ghostbusters, God.

30:48 Is Jesus a zombie?

45:45 Have you seen The Exorcism of Emily Rose? Absolutely not! Have you not been listening to anything on this episode?

Archivist Note

Ben's three subgenres of horror reminded me of Stephen King's three categories of horror: gross-out (eg gore), horror (eg zombies, jump scares), and terror (eg knowing something is behind you but you turn around and no one is there).
