Not Your Final Girl Podcast: ‘Road Trip’ With Kay Lynch

by Brendan M. Allen

Candace Ariel hit the road in this episode – metaphorically, of course. Please don’t attempt to drive through the state of Texas in real life. No good can come of it. 

They’re with Salem Horror Fest founder Kay Lynch, who brought them a double feature that tries to outrun death and chaos on the open road (spoiler: it doesn’t work). They’re talking about nightmarish and erotic coming-of-age horror thriller The Hitcher (1986), and satanic game of cat and mouse in a winnebago, Race with the Devil (1975).

Our intrepid hosts have a lot of smart and interesting thoughts on these movies, but they’ve also got Rutger Hauer getting his face spat in and apparently loving it, what it takes to make a convincing dead dog, a goblin mode cam, and neither knowing where the hell Amarillo, TX is (if you know, don’t tell). Everything you need for an imaginary road trip. Bring snacks.

Kay Lynch is the Founder/Director of Salem Horror Fest, independent Film Producer, and Event Producer for the George A. Romero Foundation. She has produced and promoted hundreds of events in the Art, Queer, and Horror communities all over the world and supported hundreds of independent filmmakers reach global audiences.
