Scary Thoughts #116 – Clueless (1995)

Clueless (1995) is one of those films that almost everyone has a soft spot for. It defined a time and place, riffed on a classic, upholds pretty good values, is extremely quotable, and makes you feel happy when you watch it (unless you are truly dead inside).

So why are we covering it on a horror podcast? Well, it’s Marc’s favorite movie, and Chad prefers it to all horror movies. It’s an episode we’ve joked about doing forever.

Recently, we both read “As If!: The Oral History of Clueless, as Told by Amy Heckerling, the Cast, and the Crew” by Jen Chaney, so what better time than now? (It’s a fun book that goes deep into everything we missed in our episode, so if you’re a Clueless fanatic, it’s essential reading.)

We also chat about whether or not the elevated horror wave has crested. And we sneak in some Barbie vs Oppenheimer talk near the end. It’s a real rambler.
