Derek Devereaux Smith is a podcaster and co-host of Watch If You Dare Podcast.
Society may be quarantined, but the spoop bois Derek and Aaron are still here to deliver the scares. This week, they discuss 2016's Irish-British independent horror film "A Dark Song" written and directed by Liam Gavin. They dig into the quality of acting done between a mostly two person cast, the handling of magic compared to reality and other media, and the emotional toll it had specifically on Derek. They also go through how the movie portrays themes and horror related to long term indoor isolation (sound familiar?). Did Aaron summon an angel or a demon? Is that actually Derek behind the door?

In this special episode, the Spoop Bois finally take on another juggernaut of horror cinema. Scientist and personal friend of the show Devin joins Aaron and Derek to discuss 1982's science fiction horror masterpiece "The Thing" directed by John Carpenter. They dig into the themes of distrust and isolation, how the horror holds up decades later, what else can be said about a film that has been thoroughly discussed, the expanded lore shown in the comics, etc. They also go through a brief history of the flick in regard to production including referencing the novella "Who Goes There?" and 1951's film "The Thing from Another World." Devin disappears in the snowstorm, Aaron spends time with the dog, and Derek is locked in the tool shack.We are on PodBean, Apple Podcasts, Podchaser, Stitcher, Spotify, CastBox, and Google Play.

This week, Derek and Aaron tackle 2015's haunted house flick "We Are Still Here" written and directed by Ted Geoghegan.
