Critic Rating

From the team that brought you the Webby award-winning Let's Make A Sci-Fi, a New Yorker Best Podcast of 2022, and the hilariously heartfelt Let's Make A Rom-Com, comes season three: Let's Make A Horror. This time, comedians Mark Chavez, Maddy Kelly, and Ryan Beil will make you laugh while they try to make you scream. Over 10 episodes, Mark, Maddy, and Ryan will learn what it takes to make truly frightening horror, interviewing Hollywood writers, directors, and enthusiasts; probing their deepest fears; and eventually taking a stab at writing and directing their own shocking short film.

"...it’s fun to listen to Let’s Make a Rom-Com...you’re pulled along for a ride as they draw upon their fondness for and popular understanding of the genre to develop a script idea. In a sense, one could locate Let’s Make a Sci-Fi, and now Let’s Make a Rom-Com, within a genre of its own: The Process Podcast, which tangibly guides listeners through the journey of how something gets made or how something happens...just like the romantic comedy itself, the discussions about the genre on the show can ultimately feel a little conservative, and as such, those with more subversive tendencies might chafe at some choices and the way things are discussed. All of which is to say, your mileage on this might vary."
