Peter speaks to professor Jessica Gildersleeve about Nicolas Roeg’s 1973 classic horror film Don’t Look Now.
In this episode, Peter talks to novelist and poet Niamh Boyce whose new historical novel Her Kind is a reimagining of the events leading up to the Kilkenny Witch Trial of 1324.
Peter talks to professor Kendall R. Phillips about his book, A Place of Darkness, and how horror developed in early American cinema up until the release of Dracula in 1931.
Peter Meinertzhagen talks to Marion Gibson, professor of renaissance and magical literature at Exeter University, about witchcraft. Answering questions such as: how old is witchcraft? what defines “a witch”? and are there still witches today?
This is the first Sublime Horror podcast. There are a few audio glitches as I try and figure out the best way of recording remotely over Skype, so the quality isn’t as fantastic as I’d hope. But Marion is fascinating to listen to regardless and I hope you enjoy the conversation.
