Psychoanalysis is a weekly series from Consequence Podcast Network that takes an in-depth look at a mental health topic through the lens of horror. Today, Jenn, Mike, and Lara are joined by Mary Beth McAndrews from the Scarred for Life and Watched Once Never Again podcasts for a comfort horror installment on David Slade’s 30 Days of Night.
In the new episode, they discuss the film’s graphic novel origins, mid-aughts time stamps, and reflections of xenophobia and post 9/11 anxiety. Mary Beth talks about the film’s differing perspectives on masculinity. Mike describes his favorite scene. Lara enjoys the animalistic creature design, and Jenn loves on Josh Hartnett. So batten down the hatches and meet us in the attic; the snow may be cold, but the vampires are hot.
