On this week’s podcast, we’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of our Scary Movies series, which opens this Friday with the New York premiere of Terrifier, a gritty slasher throwback featuring the scariest clown to ever hit movie screens. 

Our Editorial Director Michael Koresky sat down with programmers Laura Kern and Rufus de Rham to talk about the history of the series, the current state of horror films, and which selections they’re most excited to watch with an audience. Also on this week’s episode, we’re sharing a highlight from the 2014 edition of Scary Movies, when our Opening Night selection was the hilarious horror mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows. Co-director Jemaine Clement joined us for a Q&A moderated by former Film Comment editor Gavin Smith.
