Debate Club Returns: Meet Team One

Unless you’ve been buried away in a wooden crate with dirt packed into your ears and a plague of rats scurrying around you, you’ve probably heard that we’re reviving our annual Debate Club, with our next event coming this haunting season. Our latest edition, “They’re All Gonna Laugh At You”, takes place on October 19th at The Royal Cinema.

Come and bare witness to the battle for the title of “Best Horror Comedy”, starting with…

TEAM ONE

Choice Film: Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi’s, What We Do in the Shadows (2014)

Alison is a writer, zinemaker and crappy bass player based in Toronto. Her book Women with Guts came out as part of the Rue Morgue Library in 2017. She also contributed a chapter on Geraldo Rivera to the Spectacular Optical publication Satanic Panic: Pop Culture Paranoia in the 1980s and has delivered presentations on horror, gender and various body fluids for the Ax Wound Film Festival (Vermont) and the Final Girls Film Festival (Berlin). This is her third time as a Black Museum debater and she is thrilled for the opportunity to once again respectfully rip her fellow competitors’ spines from their bodies a la Scorpion from Mortal Kombat.
