Movie Bears Podcast

On this episode we’re looking at maternal horror films old and new with special guest and beloved MBP alum Chris Lopez! First up, we look back at the influential Alfred Hitchcock slasher, ‘Psycho.’ Then, we turn our attention to the controversial new film ‘mother!’ by Darren Aronofsky. If you don't listen, you might disappoint mother… and you wouldn’t want that now, would you??

This week, the bears are DTC (that's 'Down To Clown' for those not hip to the lingo) and apparently so were record numbers of moviegoers. Everybody's seeing and talking about the latest movie adaptation of a Stephen King horror novel, 'IT', and so are we!  Joined by our good friend and handsome bear, Dan McCord, we review and discuss 'IT' while reflecting back on the source novel and also the 1990 TV miniseries version.
