This podcast contains spoilers! And this is a 2020 film so consider your self warned.
Don’t worry. Nothing was stolen from an Apeth in order to record this episode. So we’re all good on that front. This is an interesting one for us here at NtF. Billed as a horror movie, we ask and try to answer the question, “Did this story NEED to be a horror movie?” You’ll have to listen to find out. This movie deals with a lot of heavy topics around immigration, refugees, loss and PTSD so it may be on the heavier side, content wise. It’s a clever take on a horror movie to mix it in with the trauma of fleeing war torn regions of the world and settling in a land that seems hostile and confusing in different and unexpected ways. We hope that you enjoy!
