Bill Skarsgård as It in the 2017 film.

In terms of box office, 2017 was the biggest year in the history of horror cinema. One wonders: Why? And then this year has brought us Hereditary, A Quiet Place, and now Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House.

This hour: a look at our current horror through the lens of our current horror.

  • Aaron Mark - Creator, writer, and director of the scripted fiction podcast The Horror of Dolores Roach
  • Matt Owen - Author of "Our Age of Horror"
  • Jason Zinoman - Writes The New York Times's On Comedy column; author of Shock Value: How a Few Eccentric Outsiders Gave Us Nightmares, Conquered Hollywood, and Invented Modern Horror
