It’s heeeere! I’m Samm Deighan and I’m beyond excited to launch the first episode of my new podcast, Eros + Massacre. Chris Haskell from They Live on Film podcast kindly joined me for the first episode, where we talk all about one of our mutual favorite underrated directors, Michele Soavi, and focus on his four key horror films from the late ’80s and ’90s: Stage Fright, The Church, The Sect, and Cemetery Man. We particularly focused on Soavi’s brilliance as a surrealist and the fact that he is — for my money — the last great Italian genre director.

Thanks as always to Cinepunx and since this is a brand new show and it needs all the help it can get, please rate, review, follow, and share! And if you plan to cut out anyone’s heart in satanic revenge in the near future, please don’t get pickpocketed on the subway. Viva Soavi!
