Terrifying Texts in Olivier Assayas’ ‘Personal Shopper’ Starring Kristen Stewart [Horror Queers Podcast]

Airplane Mode off…

After closing out February with discussions of Pedro Almodóvar gender-bending thriller The Skin I Live In (listen) and Neil Jordan’s not-campy-enough stalker film Greta (listen), we’re entering the heady world of Olivier Assayas in his 2016 chiller Personal Shopper, which features a stellar lead turn from Kristen Stewart.

In the film, a personal shopper (Kristen Stewart) in Paris refuses to leave the city until she is able to make contact with her twin brother who previously died there. Her life becomes more complicated when a mysterious person (or spirit?) begins contacting her via text message and her employer is found brutally murdered in her apartment.

Episode 272: Personal Shopper (2016)

Do not take your phone off Airplane mode because we’re heading to Paris to discuss Olivier Assayas’ Personal Shopper (2016). Helping us sift through this fascinating, dense film is Trace’s better half (and frequent returning guest) Ari Drew!

Join us as we heap all the praise on Kristen Stewart before diving into all things supernatural (and technology!), linking the film to the recent wave of liminal horror films.

Plus: Joe “raps” (yes, really), fade-outs galore, the necessity of on-screen nudity, silly conversations about gorillas and one of the scariest scenes to come out of the 2010s.


Cross out Personal Shopper!

Coming up on Wednesday: We’re delving back into the world of Alfred Hitchcock with a look at 1951’s Strangers on a Train.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
