Culture Podcast: We’re Still Shaken Up About The Witch

February typically isn’t the month we associate with tucking into a movie theater and having the wits scared out of us. Honestly, it’s not a month we associate with going to the movies at all. But last weekend The Witch hit theaters and, frankly, we’re still a little shook up.

Podcast

We’re not the only ones. The Witch, a first feature from writer-director Robert Eggers, brought in about $8.7 million over the weekend in US theaters—not bad for a small indie thriller. It didn’t bring in Deadpool money—that movie is on its way to making $500 million globally—but it did remarkably well for a scary movie being released a week before the Oscars.

The Witch isn’t the only thing raising our blood pressure on this week’s Monitor podcast, though. We also have a lot to say about the new Netflix series Love and Kesha’s current troubles. So settle in, everyone. Editors and writers Peter Rubin, Angela Watercutter, and K.M. McFarland are in the booth, and even though there are terrors all around we are here for you.

A few helpful links for things we talk about in the podcast:

-WIRED’s piece on The Witch and the demonization of women
-Jordan Crucchiola’s story on how director Robert Eggers made The Witch so scary
-Angela Watercutter’s piece on why money might be the best way to #FreeKesha
-Jack Antonoff’s pledge to produce new music for Kesha
-Cayetana’s cover of “Age of Consent”
