  1. Not sure I’ll watch this after listening to the podcast! I used to watch a lot of horror movies. I don’t know if I’m getting more conservative, but I feel like the trailers I see seem to objectify women a lot. I’m sick of sexual threat being used as a throwaway plot point. Were they always like that? Think I’ll skip Don’t Breathe even if I had a chance to see it.

    1. I’m not a huge horror movie guy, but I feel like the sexual threat element has been around for a long time. As a throwaway element, I’m not really sure at all. Women have been objectified in film since it began, but you already know that. Again, apologies, I have no real knowledge. Thanks for our first ever comment!

      1. I think I’m basing my comments entirely on seeing trailers for recent horror movies – and I don’t remember trailers for a lot of the earlier horror stuff I watched. But I *feel* like it is worse, or at least emphasised more. For example Scream was heavily advertised with the creepy phone call at the beginning. And while that’s threatening to a vulnerable female, the viewer wasn’t in the position of actually leering at her e.g. she’s dressed! I don’t know really either. It just puts me off these films now.
        And, you’re welcome.
