Combining movies with discussion of serious mental health topics is such a great idea. I always take something positive or helpful from each episode. Thanks, Pod!

I hate horror movies. But I love these guys. They are smart, interesting and add depth to movies I will (never) see. If you love @yourwrongabout I can let you into this new little secret. And some new friends for you. Go love them too. And thank you Mike, Laura and Jen ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from across the...Read full review »

Discussing horror movies and the very real issues they often confront could easily fall prey to shallowness or to sensationalizing instead of normalizing the discussion of mental health. Jenn, Lara, and Mike do a fantastic job of covering both the mental health topic and the film of the week,...Read full review »

I absolutely love this podcast! I’m a Psychology Student going for my masters program and the stuff that’s covered is so interesting and educational but keeps me engaged in an entertaining way. I love how deep the hosts go into analyzing movies, you can really tell they put a lot of thought and...Read full review »

All three of you do an amazing job. I love your analysis of each topic. Look forward to each new episode. ♥️ ❤️

I subscribed to this podcast because I enjoyed Jenn and Lara's work on The Losers' Club and Halloweenies, and figured this would be up my alley as well. I was right about that, so if you enjoy those podcast, I think you'll be into this one as well. (I confess to not having listened...Read full review »

Love this pod- great mix of horror films and topics of psychology. Look forward to every episode and enjoy their insights into the genre!

I am catching up. I love this so much. I was a teenager in the 80s, so my love of slasher flicks outweighs everything, but listening to y’all talk about other horror movies has made me excited to watch things I missed. I’m a health care worker, and this has made the pandemic easier to take. Thank...Read full review »

I’ve been hooked since day 1! All three hosts are very likable, funny, kind and bring their own insights into such a niche space of talking horror films as a therapy. Love the movies they’ve covered, and can’t wait to hear more!
shrksmle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/13/21
I found these guys through The Losers Club and I am glad I did. They are very insightful and have given new meaning to a lot of movies I have loved over the years. Highly recommended. Looking forward to Borderline Personality Disorder!

I appreciate that Jenn, Lara, and Mike make learning about mental health issues, particularly how they relate to the movies they discuss, so easy. Explaining mental health diagnoses and practices can sometimes be intimidating—or worse, boring—for listeners who may not be knowledgeable on the...Read full review »

I discovered this podcast during the pandemic. Listening to the discussions has been such a positive space for me to lean into and feel some comfort during the last year. I can’t recommend it enough!!
ryhonkus32 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/01/21
Never cared much for horror but they lured me in with the mental health angle. Turns out I REALLY enjoy horror when three amazing people dissect the movie before I see it and remind me of self care. The podcast discusses one movie every episode and the talk about the mental health themes they...Read full review »

I can truly say this podcast got me through the Coronavirus pandemic. Over the last year I’ve been re-exploring my love of horror as a way to cope with the real life ‘ ghosties and ghoulies ‘ around me— This podcast has helped me gain a deeper understanding of why I feel inclined to do that, as...Read full review »

Came here as a Horror Virgin fan for Jenn and stayed for Mike and Lara. Love the conversations and love each host dearly. Such a great concept for a podcast and exactly what I’m looking for to deepen my horror knowledge and appreciation.
kathlinguini via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/21
Smart but not heavy; funny but not fluff. This is a great deep dive from people who know their stuff in horror and psychological topics. Highly recommend!
ernomoneen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/21
This is just what I was looking for when I went looking for an analysis on 'We Need To Talk About Kevin' and I have fallen in love with everyone on this Pod; such great and intelligent notes on your subject matters. I have a whole list of movies to watch now and cant wait to keep listening~Read full review »

Thoughtful, vulnerable convos, insightful movie analysis, all without taking itself too seriously.
Carlarlarlarl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/21
Loving this show and the openly discussed topics!
N8turesciencegrl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/27/21
I love this podcast. I have a lifelong obsession with horror, and I am also a therapist. This podcast helps me process my feelings about movies, and also combines two topics that mean a whole lot to me. I look forward to a new episode every week. Love love love
mkh1901 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/21
It leans more into the political rather than psychological themes in the films they discuss, which is disappointing. The idea of the podcast is a great one, but it doesn’t quite deliver on the premise.
Alex Blackshire via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/16/21
I love this podcast. You all talk about difficult topics but I’m always laughing too. Thanks for all you do!
Addicted1926 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/21
Meh
Laura stop apologizing for yourself. Way to set back the women’s movement and pride in having their own opinion. As for Mike asking for loyal listeners to drop out for having a differing opinion. Done. Also interesting that Jen immediately follows up with a call to have grace for self and...Read full review »

I get that they’re trying to make a pun with the title but just a heads up to anyone actually interested in psychoanalytic theory or psychoanalytic film theory, this show doesn’t provide that. It’s essentially just talking about movies and personal lives with your basic milquetoast self help...Read full review »

Very unique perspective on the horror genre using the lens of mental health: how characters exhibit symptoms of mental illness or distress, how the movies affect the hosts mentally, and how people can cope with the mental health concerns brought up. I enjoy their takes on the movies’ themes,...Read full review »

I just got into this podcast a few weeks ago and I really love it. I love the hosts’s easy conversation and especially Mike’s clinical perspective.

I’m so happy this pod exists 😀 🔪 👻 🎃 🎧 was a big fan of Jen and Laura’s work on the Loser’s Club pod and when I heard about this one I died so happy.

I absolutely love this podcast. Jen, you speak to my soul. I discovered you on THV and followed you to this podcast! I’ve always wanted to listen to self-help and “therapy” podcasts but I was never fully interested. Now that you’ve combined it with horror, I am hooked (and learning)! I also...Read full review »
@Katherineleiye via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/12/20
Love the show and the conversations that are had. I love looking deeper into horror and the themes that are present but often overlooked. Only pet peeve is in talking about psychology Jen never fails in bringing the conversation to herself. There’s just huge chunks of the show where she brings it...Read full review »

I love this show. I’ve loved the genre of horror for a long time and for a long time too, didn’t quite understand that love. It’s become clearer over the years but here is a podcast that has taken my understanding of my own love of horror to a deeper level! I like that a whole month is taken to...Read full review »

Amazing podcast ! I’m so glad this exist. The first episode I listened to was the one on Midsommar and it was so so so great. I couldn’t help but nod at everything and take a bunch of notes, all while feeling like I’m with a nice group of friends. Such an important podcast thank you so much !...Read full review »

Not been able to verify psychoanalytic practitioners participating in POD; one LMH CAND and friends-appears to be misrepresentation. Maybe entertainment potential, unfortunately lacks analytic depth.
1234hdksowjdbd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/04/20
I started listening to the podcast that was suggested to me. Love horror movies and as a good psych major- it’s so interesting to listen to the two topics combined. Makes you rethink the movies that we have grown to love and take a second look at them. So much fun to listen to.
Tina Hell via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/02/20
the number of podcasts I subscribe to I can count on one bloody hand, so it is with TOTAL AND ABSOLUTE TRUTH that this podcast is very awesome, very clever, and very engaging; people who like horror and listening to others talk about it MUST SUBSCRIBE OKAY DO IT FOR THE CHILDREN OR WHATEVER THIS...Read full review »

I waited a few episodes before reviewing just to make sure I liked it for the content and not just because I love Jenn & Mike that I know from other podcasts (getting to know and love you Laura) and I do enjoy it all!

Insightful and entertaining and the hosts are all great. Everything you could ask for in a horror podcast!
Rean Sose via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/28/20
I’m not someone who watches a ton of horror movies, but that doesn’t matter. The enthusiasm and expertise of the hosts is extremely welcoming, even if you’re not a huge horror fan. It’s extremely easy to get on board with this thoughtful and funny podcast. Can’t wait for more!
sawinchell via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/28/20
I love this pod. I love these women. And I love their passion for this subject matter. I am a horror hound who suffers from my own mental illness and listening to these folks discuss and analyze why we find solace in scary flicks is a true treat. You won’t be let down!
srkdall via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/28/20
I really like this one. Great chemistry, insightful discussions and it makes you look at these movies differently. Definitely recommend!
Zeman24 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/28/20
This is one of the only podcasts on my subscription list that I will drop everything to listen to as soon as possible after it's available!

This is a very thoughtfully done and well researched podcast dicussing the mental health issues surrounding horror films. I love forward to where it goes in the future. Good stuff.
politicalpodcastfanoid via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/28/20
One of the great things about the horror genre is that it takes real life traumas and fears and allows us to experience them in a slightly removed way. PsychoAnalysis does a great job of breaking these movies and trends down and giving a real analysis of why they make us feel a certain way....Read full review »

If you love horror AND psychology, this is the podcast for you. I was already listening to Jenn and Lara on the Loser’s Club, and to Mike on the Pod and the Pendulum (both podcasts I listen to as soon as they come out), so it was only natural I’d try out Psychoanalysis. It’s compelling,...Read full review »
