    Play Misty For Me: Eastwood's Erotic Thriller

    38:00

    Before Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction, before Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct, there was...Jessica Walter in Play Misty For Me! In 1971, Clint Eastwood made his directorial debut with this early entry into the erotic thriller genre. While Alfred Hitchcock had hinted at the genre with films like Psycho and Marnie, and Noir films had gifted us the Femme Fatale archetype, Play Misty For Me is unique in that it feels more like later, more modern erotic thrillers of the late 80s and early 90s. Listen in as we discuss Jessica Walter's amazing portrayal of Evelyn, Eastwood's directorial style, and the not-so-perfect gender politics of this sub-genre.To watch more erotic thriller content - as well as tons of other great horror titles - subscribe to Fear: The Home of Horror on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/fearthehomeofhorrorAnd follow us on @KillCountPod on Twitter and Instagram for updates about upcoming episodes!https://www.instagram.com/killcountpod/https://twitter.com/KillCountPodFear Presents: Kill Count is hosted by Mike Muncer, creator and host of The Evolution of Horror Podcast, Alexandra Penelope, and Dan Iacono. Editing by Joe Bond & Charlie GraceArtwork by Ugne DereskeviciuteSocial By Steph WattsAnd Special thanks to acast!
