Welcome to Everything Trying to Kill You, the comedy podcast that talks about horror movies! On the Thanksgiving episode of our show, episode 54 about Taylor Sheridan’s film Wind River, your hosts Mary Kay McBrayer, Rachel Estridge, and Mary Beyer answer important questions like these:

Why are we doing a non-horror movie on a horror podcast? What are your hosts’ favorite westerns? What are their dads’ favorite westerns? How does Wind River maintain or invert traditional Western tropes? Is this movie scary? What does this movie say about dichotomies of “cowboys n’ Indians” racial politics? Do we have a “noble savage” trope? What’s the deal with the Reservation as a setting? Why is the main character a white dude? (Is that a Western trope?) Do we feel good about the casting? Is Cory just “the white guy who is allowed?” What’s Cory’s role in this setting? What about women in westerns? What’s scary about this movie, even though it’s not labeled “horror?” Did you like the dynamic between Cory and Jane?
