Say goodbye to 2020 with an episode celebrating our favorite goth aesthete and cinematic genius, Orson Welles. Yes, he is a goth icon and in this episode of the Evil Eye, Rob and Samm will explain why — from his dashing cape fashions to his constant use of gothic themes throughout his prolific work as a director, actor, producer, and adapter of literature. The episode focuses on some of his goth-est films from The Stranger (1946) to The Trial (1962) and covers all of our favorite subjects, like WWII conspiracy theories to radical leftist politics.

The Evil Eye is a podcast about goth movies. What exactly is a goth movie? Writers Samm Deighan and Robert Skvarla are two old goths determined to answer that age-old question by exploring various genres including horror, melodrama, and film noir. Each episode will dissect a film that fits the goth aesthetic and explore the music and culture in the year that film was released.
