Pop academic podcast, The Faculty of Horror, is set to return to the Witch City for a live show at Salem Horror Fest this October in partnership with Rue Morgue Magazine. Hosts Andrea Subissati (Rue Morgue editor) and Alexandra West (author The 1990s Teen Horror Cycle: Final Girls and a New Hollywood Formula) will also give lectures on focused topics within the genre at the Peabody Essex Museum.
"Our first ever live show in front of an audience at Salem Horror Fest was a wonderful experience, and it was great to meet many of our listeners in such an intimate and historic environment,” said Subissati.
“In its first year, Salem Horror created a horror festival with terrific guests and exclusive screenings, where all are welcome to share in the love of their favorite genre and the Festival is poised to grow in importance,” adds West. “We're thrilled to return to the Fest this October!”
The most recent episode of The Faculty of Horror features a deep dive discussion about witches in horror, and is now available on iTunes and Stitcher. Salem Horror Fest returns Thursday, October 4 - Sunday, October 14th, 2018 in Salem, Massachusetts. Further details to be announced in the coming weeks.
