Previously we’ve talked about what the horror and sci-fi movie baddies of some age SAY about that age. You know, like… whether zombies represent capitalism, or technology or both. Or how the sorts of lines grotesque film monsters cross can indicate what cultural, or political transgressions are thought particularly heinous. A man crossed with a fly? HAS SCIENCE GONE TOO FAR? In this episode we’re gonna do something different – instead of asking about the BAD GUYS, we’re gonna ask about what the GOOD GUYS may say about today. And we’re gonna ask about one particular type of film and TV protagonist … that isn’t quite at zombie or sexy vampire ubiquity yet …. but seems increasingly common nonetheless: the telekinetic. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
