Horror month is back! Author, archivist, historian, and lifelong horror fan, Janaya Kizzie, introduces Matt to Bill Gunn's lost masterpiece, Ganja & Hess. Funded in part due to the interest in blaxploitation films and released to obscurity in 1973, Ganja & Hess was a movie ahead of its time. With a recent restoration that restored some missing footage the movie is finally starting to gain the audience it so richly deserves. Then Janaya fills in a blind spot of her own with David Lynch's first film, Eraserhead. A personal favorite of Matt's, he guides her through the wonderfully weird world of the Lady in the Radiator, the shocking sounds and and even more shocking apperance of the baby, and the influential sets and sound design that traumatize audiences to this day.
