Shownotes

On the 378th episode of Piecing It Together, Scott Drebit joins me to talk about The First Omen. This prequel to the classic 1976 horror movie overcame all the odds of bad horror prequels and ended up being one of the year's best horror films. Puzzle pieces include Possession, Suspiria, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and Rosemary's Baby.

We also talk about Scott Drebit's new book "A Cut Below: A Celebration of B Horror Movies 1950s-1980s" which is available now at https://www.amazon.com/Cut-Below-Celebration-Horror-1950s-1980s/dp/1476691959

As always, SPOILER ALERT for The First Omen and the movies we discuss!

Written by Arkasha Stevenson, Tim Smith, Keith Thomas

Directed by Arkasha Stevenson
