79: The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh with Kristen Zaza
Becky flies solo this week with Actress and Podcaster Kristen Zaza for the atmospherically spooky The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh from 2012. We discuss allowing movies to wash over you, what makes an effective jump scare, finding inspirations from unlikely sources, and being okay with not having a "come to Jesus" moment. Kristen and Becky may not have agreed on this film, but they can agree on their mutual love of Julien Richings. He's the best.
Make sure to check out Kristen's ethereal and lyrical podcast "On a dark, cold night" on the podcaster of your choice.
This week's End Credit music is Antiphon: O Rubor Sanguinis, by Hildegard von Bingen, performed by Anonymous 4
