FANGORIA Podcast Network: “THE RANTS MACABRE” celebrates Mother’s Day with “PSYCHO”!


It’s not much of a surprise to horror fans to see mothers at the center of horror films throughout the years. Whether they’re the protagonist (THE BABADOOK, ROSEMARY’S BABY), the antagonist (MOTHER’S DAY, FRIDAY THE 13TH) or somewhere in between (MANIAC, SANTA SANGRE), a mother can bring emotional and psychological baggage to a horror project that other characters simply cannot. And no cinematic mother is as iconic or essential to the genre as Norma Bates, and with her on the mind, THE RANTS MACABRE celebrates Mother’s Day by revisiting Alfred Hitchcock’s PSYCHO!

That’s right: the latest eerie episode of THE RANTS MACABRE finds Darren & Mindy analyzing and discussing this seminal slasher film, from the performances to the camerawork and the themes underlying it all. The demonic duo go over PSYCHO beat by beat, as well as how the film changed the horror genre and film culture in ways that still are relevant to this day.
