    of education. Attempting to learn you the alphabet something fierce, the horror anthology and
    its roster of some of genre’s best international talent leaves no repulsive,
    splattered, pearl-clutcher of a stone unturned. Jake West, director of DOGHOUSE,
    landed “S” and subsequently crafted a multi-faceted, swiftly-paced piece. Here,
    he speaks to Fango about his own love for the subgenre and more.
