The power of Manon compels you to listen to this wicked new episode of “Skillset.” As you heard last week, this season is dedicated to high school movies: the crushes, the classmates, and the clothes. But because it’s the week before Halloween, today we’re going to talk about the sinister side of high school: witches, murder, and kids who get stalked by death. First up, real-life witch Meagan Fredette tells us why The Craft cast a spell on so many magical young women. Then American Honey star Sasha Lane celebrates her favorite high school movie: the popular-chicks-turned-murderers black comedy Jawbreaker. Finally, classics instructor Lucas Herchenroeder changes the way you see Final Destination. It’s not just a franchise where a bunch of hot teens die horrible deaths. It’s a modern-day Greek tragedy.
That’s all in this week’s episode of “Skillset.” Subscribe on iTunes or your favorite podcatcher, and if you learned something new — like I know I did — give us a rating. Class is now in session.
