Grab your good bag and your cheap shoes and join the Horror Virgin Crew for a little quid pro quo as we kick off Women in Horror month with the psychological horror masterpiece The Silence of the Lambs.

We’ll discuss Academy Award-winning horror, subverting the male gaze, and the complexity of Buffalo Bill. Jenn gives some advice for talking to women and we all discuss the importance of authentic on-screen representation.
