Show Notes

What does the Bible have to do with horror movies? At first glance, you might not think the two could be related. But in today’s episode, you’ll hear from Steve Wiggins, whose books and other materials explore the use of religious symbols in such iconic horror movies as The Exorcist, The Omen, Rosemary’s Baby, Psycho and Carrie. Listen to Dr. Wiggins’s take on how the Bible and religious symbols are used for insidious purposes in horror movies, why horror movies can be therapeutic, and how certain horror movies contain elements of the Bible or biblical ideas.
