Sasha Ravitch joins us once more for the first installment of our 3 part 'Stars of Horror' series. Using insights born of and informed by horror cinema, each episode will focus on a particular star alongside its more monstrous expressions. In addition to this we will discuss parallel topics of magic, divination, witchcraft, and creativity through the context of our chosen films.
On this episode we speak about the star Arcturus and its ever-watching, landscape-distorting qualities. The three films we have chosen to discuss it are Annihilation (2018), Stalker (1979), and Alien: Covenant (2017).
