Look, let’s cut to the chase scene through the abandoned coal mine: summer rules. That’s a fact. The days are longer, the beach beckons, and good time vibes abound. But, if you’re a fragile, overthinking chihuahua like me, the pressure to have a good time can be a little debilitating. People relax and cut loose during the summer. That is the purpose of the season (in this hemisphere anyway). But much like trying to fall asleep after a cup of coffee (an unrelatable scenario that I would know nothing about), trying to have an aspirationally chill summer is easier dreamt of while scrolling #summerfeels on Instagram than done.

Shudder, AMC Networks’ streaming service for horror, thriller, and the supernatural, announced today that Visitations with Elijah Wood & Daniel Noah—a new podcast from the boundary-breaking indie production company SpectreVision—premiered on Friday, May 31. Episode 1, featuring a conversation with Taika Waititi (What We Do in the ShadowsThor: Ragnarok) in his L.A. home, is on Apple Podcasts, where the trailer is now available, as well as Spotify and other platforms. Subsequent episodes will be released twice-weekly on Mondays and Fridays. All episodes of the podcast are on Shudder now, exclusively for its members.

“The opportunity to deep dive into the hearts and minds of our friends and colleagues has been an illuminating experience. We made some profound and surprising discoveries about the artists, their work and genre in general that we hope will resonate for fans as much as it has for us,” said Wood and Noah of the podcast.

“SpectreVision has been wowing us for years with films like Mandy and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night,” said Shudder GM Craig Engler. “We’re excited to share Daniel and Elijah’s insightful conversations with the directors of those movies and other genre-redefining creators with our Shudder members.”

From campfire tales to monster movies, the exhilarating, entertaining and sometimes even therapeutic experience of facing one’s fears through stories has always fascinated Wood and Noah, and that exploration can be seen throughout SpectreVision’s projects and the artists they work with. Visitations features the two hosts traveling to the homes and workshops of some of their favorite creators in the genre community and beyond. In these intimate visits, guests delve into their lives, their work and how they’ve managed to turn their deepest fears into art. Episodes include conversations with:

  • Taika Waititi (director, What We Do in the Shadows)
  • Mike Flanagan (director, The Haunting of Hill House)
  • John Landis (director, An American Werewolf in London)
  • Ana Lily Amirpour (director, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night)
  • Dan Harmon (co-creator, Rick and Morty)
  • Flying Lotus (musician and director, Kuso)
  • Richard Stanley (director, Hardware)
  • Kate and Laura Mulleavy (Rodarte founders & designers, directors of Woodshock)
  • Panos Cosmatos (director, Mandy)

Visitations with Elijah Wood & Daniel Noah is created by SpectreVision, executive produced by Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller, Lisa Whalen and Elijah Wood, and edited by Graham Reznick (director of the Shudder Original Series Deadwax). The series features original music by popular Toronto-based experimental electronic/jazz group BADBADNOTGOOD and art by Jay Shaw, senior creative director at Mondo. Listeners can subscribe on Apple Podcasts at http://bit.ly/visitationspod, and join the conversation on social media with the hashtag #VisitationsPod.

Visitations is Shudder’s fourth original podcast, following the supernatural drama Video Palace, the women-in-horror podcast She Kills hosted by Adrienne Barbeau, and Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut, featuring unedited conversations with the filmmaker and many of the biggest names in the genre, including Stephen King, Edgar Wright and Greg Nicotero.
