This has become one of my go-to horror movie podcasts. Anna and her guests have some great perspectives to share in the genre and films that they cover.

Really great stuff!!
FattyLumpkin1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/02/24
Love the depth of the reviews, and female orientation, but mostly hearing the laughs and giggles over what is a morbid subject…
FelixInOz via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/25/24
Love this. It’s becoming my fave show. In depth analysis on horror movies and no social, woke, ticky box agendas, which is a breath of fresh air when it comes to podcasts. Thank you for the work you do.

This is a great podcast and so interesting to hear perspectives that are often missed on other horror podcast. Special shoutout to the Horror Oscars episode 👏👏👏

I thought this movie was a fever dream from my younger days! I was obsessed with the tv version here shown in the US when I was younger. Never realized how gorey it was bc it was a TV edit!! Loved the episode and revisit!!

Well, if you aren’t obsessed with Anna, you are wrong. I adore this podcast. Smart feminist analysis is so needed, and I love keeping up with these themes. Well researched, smart, to the point, funny, and highly entertaining. I thoroughly recommend. I only got into horror a few years ago, and...Read full review »

Thank you for including Scream, Pretty Peggy! Viewed on tv In Canada at the tender age of 11, it frightened me so much that I wouldn't go back to appreciate horror well into my 30's. Now I'm a huge fan and podcasts like yours continue to feed my appetite.Read full review »

The discussion on Promising Young Woman so spot on I felt my loneliness dissipated a bit!
H Mit via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/20/23
Overall the podcast is great- exploring film from a feminist perspective. However, several years into listening to the podcast, I’m a little bit sick of the lack of nuance when it comes to gender and sexuality. There are no trans voices included in the podcast and queer films tend to get pretty...Read full review »

Just such an enjoyable podcast - I love the seasons, great films choices, great guests and a host you can really rely on for great ideas & a great time. Also, I have preordered my copy of ‘Unlikeable Female Characters’ and I just discovered Anna also has a Scream and an Evil Dead podcast. I...Read full review »

Always fascinating. I love the feminist aspect of the show which is not rammed down your throat but you are made to think of film and women in film in particular in a new and interesting way. Anna is a brilliant host, incredibly knowledgeable and erudite and her guests are amazing. I have learned...Read full review »

I LOVE this podcast… the horror movie content I’ve been looking for. Love the smart discussions that are funny and thought provoking without being pretentious! Minus one star because the cackling laughter completely blows out my ear drums every now and then… I love this podcast so much that it’s...Read full review »

Anna is a magnificent host who gathers stunning guests for scintillating discussions. Great work, please let this podcast run for ever!
DrGFilmislife via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/04/23
Combines genuine fondness and passion for the horror genre with nuanced discussion of the films. Well worth listening to.
Twilie 5844 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/16/22
*ghostface voice* What’s your favourite scaaarryy podcast? Mine is forever and always The Final Girls! Anna and her guests are always smart, funny and so knowledgeable-I credit them with getting me into horror and I dedicated my mini dissertation module at UCL (The Mother of All Horror-Maternity...Read full review »

Smart, thought-provoking and funny. What more could you ask for?
SophiedeParis via Apple Podcasts · France · 10/11/22
Although Horror may seem to contain more than its fair share of problematic depictions of women, a reasonable case can be made for it actually being film’s most feminist genre. With this in mind, Anna Bogutskaya and esteemed guests discuss and dissect classics, soon-to-be classics, and films...Read full review »
roywburnsiii via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/24/22
Anna and her always entertaining guests provide some great takes on horror films, and it is a podcast I always listen to as soon as it drops.
MickeyMackem via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/31/22
This is an excellent podcast. The host is brilliant and charming and brings a unique and insightful perspective to the films they discuss with their guests. Horror people and film lovers - take a chance on this podcast and you won’t be disappointed!
free repeater via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/31/22
I have throughly enjoyed the episodes I have listened too. Wonderful guests and host. Always great insight into these films. Given new angles for rewatches of some of these films. Would recommend
luckyshot80 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/24/22
This has quickly become the podcast I most look forward to each week. Come for the humour & deep love of horror - stay for the evolving definition of ‘Dance Horror’ as a subgenre.
Jfin86 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/26/22
It would be easy for any feminist movie show to focus only on women/girls, but the host and her guests clearly understand the the feminism should embrace a look at all gender, sexuality, and identity matters. While that might sound intense to some folks, they mix up their analysis with clear love...Read full review »

Great host and guests!! plus a podcast about feminism and horror movies is just *chefs kiss*
sharktaleisagoodfilm via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/15/22
Found this via the Evolution of Horror podcast on which Anna Bogutskaya is a frequent guest. She is a fantastic host and I love this podcast. It’s interesting and has great analysis and lets us share our appreciation for the horror genre. I binged it much too fast however and now I’m stuck having...Read full review »

First I would just like to say this is an excellent podcast, with excellent guests, that is very well produced. Second, A personal note of gratitude to the host. Ok, as a cis, white, middle-aged man, and retired career Soldier, there are few things I have in common with my teenaged, LGBTQ,...Read full review »
TheEveryVs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/12/22
As a format, it’s great, and Anna is a good host. The guests, however, are a mixed bag. One of the worst offenders is Leila Latif, a guest who seems to believe that every other word should be “like”.
reillyignatius via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/01/22
Such a excellent show. The enthusiasm of Anna and her guests is fantastic and has lead to me revisiting old classics and seek out new favourites. Even when you are in disagreement with their opinions it’s a great listen. Would be improved with Anna saying ‘Boss Baby’ more often.
Andy & Arty via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/01/22
I discovered this pod recently via Evolution of Horror. It’s up there with Faculty of Horror for insightful, feminist critiques. Host and guests are always interesting, unique and fun to listen to. And Anna has a voice that could melt butter, so that doesn’t hurt!
GH777 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 01/31/22
I credit this podcast for helping me realise that I do, in fact, love horror films and that it’s totally legit to love the likes of Scream, Buffy and Heathers. Anna is an excellent host; entertaining, full of fascinating facts, and her passion for the subject is infectious. The guests are always...Read full review »

El tipo de conversaciones sobre cine de terror que me gustaría tener con mis amigas (a las que no les gusta el cine de terror 😔). Genial para descubrir pelis contemporáneas que pasaron desapercibidas o más antiguas que desconocía por completo. También para conocer diferentes lecturas de...Read full review »
Cris R.F via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 01/03/22
This is like a lecture series at a university and it’s amazing! The host asks insightful questions and her guests range from those who worked on the films to enthusiasts it’s a great podcast on an intersection I’ve been craving. Check this one out and enjoy!
OperaEmC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/21
Love love love the show! The audio is a bit weird though. I was listening to the new Fear Street episodes while driving and the level difference between the host and the guest are so dramatically different that I had to ride the levels to try to not get my ears pierced by bursts of laughter. I...Read full review »
SpaceOwl! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/21
I could listen to Anna dissecting horror films all day long! Also so excited everytime an episode features Alison Peirse, I love her and her book Women make horror is excellent!
ClelMac via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/16/21
This has helped me level up from reading Wikipedia descriptions of horror movies to watching them remotely with a friend.
digitalbruhaha via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/12/20
I’ve loved Anna ever since hearing her review on the Suspiria remake on The Evolution of Horror. I am so happy she now has her own podcast. She’s thoughtful, intelligent and offers great insight and enthusiasm on the horror genre and it’s intersection with feminism. I’m so happy to finally be...Read full review »
nicolevanbebber via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/21/20
My favorite eps are the ones where I’ve seen the movie and the pod makes me see it in a new light—“The Autopsy of Jane Doe” episode with Louise Blain is straight up a masterpiece. The podcasters are generally a little younger than I am too so even when they cover something I personally don’t have...Read full review »

More critical and thoughtful than other horror podcasts.
AE Marling via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/12/20
I mean.... I could listen to Anna’s calming tones all day. This podcast has such an array of interesting voices giving thoughtful insights into the representation of femininity and power on screen. The Final Girls have opened my eyes to films I would never have considered “powerful” and I love...Read full review »
sopjbar via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/31/20
The Final Girls has climbed my list of favorite podcasts. Love the perspective of intersectional feminism and how it applies to each film. There is an interesting mix of perspective via rotating guests as well. A must for ALL horror fans looking to broaden the conversation to include womxn, race,...Read full review »
Zawiszer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/20
Interesting films discussed at an audio level undetectable by human ears. I figured the sound engineer would straitened things out by now, months into the show... nope. Is there someplace I can find transcripts?
The SpringJack via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/20
There are a lot of podcsts with people going through the plot of films. This one manages to be a step ahead, with fun banter and some interesting discussions.
MegEVil via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/10/20
I have enjoyed listening to Anna’s guest appearances on Mike Muncer’s Evolution of Horror podcast. Particularly the Suspiria (2018) episode! So when this podcast started up I was there for it and I have not been disappointed at any point. It offers the in-depth and feminist readings that I seek...Read full review »
