 This week, #OperationUniversalHorror returns! Finally! We're (mostly) over the zombie virus and it's time to get back to those classic monsters. We're talking George Waggner's The Wolf Man, starring the magnificent Lon Chaney Jr. as Larry Talbot, who's kind of a creep! Telescopic spying as a pick-up line is super not cool. We get into consent and agency. We also talk a bit about the history of the Romani people, especially during the Holocaust. Bela Lugosi is phenomenal as the fortune teller, though. I tell you what.

This week, #OperationUniversalHorror continues with Tod Browning's Dracula, starring the incomparable Bela Lugosi. We get into the great performances, including Dwight Frye's phenomenal performance as Renfield. Plus, there's a great conversation about how art can facilitate conversations about pressing social issues. Through that, we explore the depiction of mental health and the treatment of patients on film.
