What We Talk About When We Talk About Horror
The conversation was spurred by the recent film of Macbeth, a story is--in many ways-- a horror story, and a horror story that has lasted for centuries. We began by talking about why horror lasts so well, while [most] comedy dissolves almost as soon as it is created.
