From the Creature from the Black Lagoon to horror comics to Dario Argento, this Horrorigin Story episode features Dear Final Girl co-host Lori Beerman. Don't say we didn't warn ya.

Episode 20 The Dark Half

Kurt is a horror writers, but is his evil twin keeping him from doing what he loves? Lori and Tam offer support through a discussion of The Dark Half.

#HorrorFam's beloved @beernut1 shares his Horrorigin Story, a tale of classic movies and classic horror from a classy guy who grew up normal except for his love of horror—and a rather traumatic history with the movie Gremlins.

Episode 19 28 Days Later

"Then the virus wasn't on TV anymore. It was in the street." Sound familiar? 376 days after COVID lockdown, Lori and Tam watch 28 Days Later in response to a listener letter about losing time, finding perspective and understanding painful times while we're living through them.

Episode 18 Prevenge

Am I already messing up this parenting thing before the baby sees the light of day? No Rachel, you're not. In response to this week's letter, Tam and Lori check out Prevenge, the 2016 horror comedy about a newly widowed and pregnant Ruth and her VERY articulate and homicidal fetus.

This episode has everything! Lady Shasha talks growing up a fourth-generation horror fan in Connecticut on a steady diet of HBO, Gore Zone, Elvira, Dean Koontz, drive-ins, Blacula and Buster's Pub & Video. Plus what it's like being one of the few women of color producing content in the horror community.

Episode 17 Darling

Relating to others can be murder. Just ask Darling, the title character of Mickey Keating's phenomenal 2015 film. Or ask Janet, whose letter to Dear Final Girl inspired our movie choice for this episode. Tam and Lori talk how we connect, how we isolate, and how hard it is to feel lonely.

Episode 16 They Live

Nothing like a little government insurrection to inspire a watch of They Live! Tam and Lori tackle the individual's role in society, media and messaging, what lies beneath, and what we can still count on when things fall apart. Tune in for the earnest angst, stay for the quotes from Honest Abe, Martha Nussbaum and the usual tangents.

Episode 15 Possessor

Do things feel different but somehow still the same? A letter from Purgatory sparks questions about identity as Tam and Lori check out Possessor.

In this Horrorigin Story Episode, Van recalls his childhood as a "mature little person," his initial rejection of movies in the humorous-yet-violent genre, and his eventual introduction to Cronenberg's The Fly. Stay for the discussions of Kafka, librarians, and Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark.
