In this episode, I explore deafness in horror movies. If you want to check them out, you can find Hush and Soul to Keep on Netflix, and you can catch Avenged on Tubi.
I highly suggest checking out Rikki Poynter's "Why Deaf People Don't Like The Movie Hush"as she is part of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community and can speak more to the deaf experience than I can. Rikki also has an episode on Soul to Keep that I suggest you check out as well.
Let me know what movies I should check out next. I have a future episode on horror in general in the works, and I always love checking out new movies.
