GoodTrash Media published on

Welcome to part one of an exciting two-episode arc in which Dalton sits down with Alexandra West and Andrea Subissati. Alexandra and Andrea host the Toronto-based horror analysis podcast,  The Faculty of Horror.  Let's clarify, he sat down with them via Skype. We aren't made of money here.

On this episode, Dalton chats with Alexandra West. Alex not only comes from a family of creative folk, but also has an academic background in performance theory. This background and upbringing give her a unique perspective on film and the analysis thereof. Dalton and Alex chat about being theater kids, their respective nightmare fuels, and briefly debate the merits of David Fincher. Because, being a white dude, of course Dalton can't shut up about Fincher. 

Alex's writing has been featured in The Toronto Star, Rue Morgue, Famous Monsters of Filmland, and Shock Till You Drop. She is a regular columnist for the magazine Diabolique. Her first book, Films of the New French Extremity: Visceral Horror and National Identity,  will be published by McFarland Press in July 2016  - it is currently available to Pre-Order.
