In this month of Thanksgiving when, in America, we feast…
I’m thinking about things that feast on us.
The fear of being eaten is primal, and dates back to our caveman days when we were on the menu for all the big predators.
And it’s been a mainstay of horror for ages. The Blob, The Fly (both the original and the David Cronenberg remake), and countless other movies and books deal with the primal fear of being eaten by an unknown monster.
So, in this episode I talk about some movies and books that give their own unique and horrible answers to the age old question…
“What’s eating you?”
Some are classics, some are cult classics, and some are satires.
All of them will creep you out.
I hope you enjoy them.
