More Deadly the Directors cut with Rachel Talalay

On this episode of More Deadly: The Director’s Cut, Rachel and Ariel chat with genre icon Rachel Talalay, director of Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare. Together, we clear up some misinformation (that we, ahem, might have accidentally perpetuated), the true behind-the-scenes of making the ANOES series, and how working in the horror genre has evolved — and has stayed the same — for women directors over the last 30 years.

We also discussed the short film An Introvert’s Guide To High School, directed by Sophie Harvey. Watch it here.
