At a time when Hollywood has seen a reimagining of the “Horror” genre, we examine the nature of terror , the craft of making films that play on audience’s primal fears and the state of an industry that is sometimes confused about things that go bump in the night.

Larry Wilmore started his career as an actor and stand-up comedian before writing and producing on early nineties classic television shows such as “In Living Color,” “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” and “The Jamie Foxx Show.” He later co-created “The PJs” with Eddie Murphy and “The Bernie Mac Show.” Wilmore was consulting producer and appeared in “The Office” and returned to performing in earnest as the Senior Black Correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stuart and numerous other acting roles.  In January 2009, Hyperion published Wilmore's I'd Rather We Got Casinos: And Other Black Thoughts, a political humor book described by Booklist as "a faux collection of articles, essays, radio transcripts, and letters exploring the more ludicrous angles on race."  In 2012, Wilmore hosted the Showtime series Race, Religion and Sex, a "town hall" style comedy special where Wilmore prescribes to a "passionate centrist" point of view, allowing him to instigate a provocative dialogue as he dissects race, religion and sex in America.

Today’s podcast was recorded at the 14th annual Austin Film Festival on October 12th 2007.
