Monsters, ghosts, and phantoms: A Storytelling Breakdown of Halloween cinema

With Halloween on the near horizon, there's nothing like an iconic scary movie to spooktacularly enhance that holiday mood.

But since cinematic offerings, even horror titles, come in all shapes and sizes and span more than a century of  development, it may be frightfully difficult to separate the tricks from the treats when deciding just how terrorific one's film picks should be.

For some offbeat suggestions, Arts reporter Julia Meek sat down with the hosts of the Storytelling Breakdown podcast, Caleb Meyer, Stephen Stachofsky and WBOI's own Ben Clemmer, to discuss the advantages of that social platform as a means of promoting the genre from their uniquely pop culture perspective.

You can connect with Ben, Caleb and Stephen at the Storytelling Breakdown website, and listen to Cinematic Icons: Halloween Eras on Spotify by clicking here or wherever you get your podcasts.

A Fort Wayne native, Julia is a radio host, graphic artist, and community volunteer, who has contributed to NIPR both on- and off-air for forty years. Besides being WBOI's arts & culture reporter, she currently co-produces and hosts Folktales and Meet the Music.
