Talk Without Rhythm Podcast

Join El Goro, part-time luchador and full-time cinephile, as he delves into the broad grassy spaces and massed granite tarns of cinema. Each episode, El Goro discusses two movies tied together by some kind of theme. Action, sci-fi, horror, high-brow, low-brow: it's all fair game.

This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I'm discussing a double-feature of wintery horror films that both happen to start with "L." First up we have Larry Fessenden's apocalyptic story of climate change and Wendigos with 2006's The Last Winter. Then, as selected by the TWoRP listeners, we have Tomas Alfredson's 2008 heartwarming tale of childhood friendship (and vampirism) with Let the Right One In.
