Fresh Perspective is a bi-weekly podcast where we talk about two films based on a movie related theme. One film that’s in the theatre and one film that’s streaming and/or out on DVD. Jeff Broitman, Rebecca Martin, and Christine Sellin host.

Episode 40, part two of our "Maternal Macabre" movie theme, we talk about Jennifer Kent's film "The Babadook" (2014). This episode we take it a bit deeper with the topic of depression, that afflicts many, and we discuss how a horror film can perfectly depict that and ironically give you hope. Christopher Grace, film lover and horror aficionado returns as guest. You can find him on letterboxd (@icrowbot).

Next time we discuss Paul Schrader films, starting with his new release "First Reformed" starring Ethan Hawke. Following with the 1985 classic "Mishimi: A Life in Four Chapters". Guest hosts TBA!
