YouTube Selection: Partisan Horror Movies?

Acolytes of Horror looks into the recent rash of horror movies where the characters are partisan stereotypes.

It’s not a new thing for a horror movie to make reference to the socio-political issues of the day.

What may be new is horror movies making very blatant connections to current political arguments with stereotypical conservative or liberal types interacting with each other until something shows up to kill them.  YouTube channel Acolytes of Horror looked into that.
