‘Talk Scary to Me’ – Danielle Harris and Scout Taylor-Compton’s Podcast Joins the Bloody FM Network!
Bloody Disgusting’s very own podcast network, Bloody FM has a little something for everyone, including immersive audio dramas, true crime, paranormal, film discussion and more. We’re always plugging new horror shows into your ears on Bloody FM, and today brings a very special Halloween announcement that we’re incredibly excited to share with you all.
Talk Scary to Me, the discussion podcast hosted by Halloween franchise stars Danielle Harris (Halloween 4 & 5, Rob Zombie’s Halloween) and Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Halloween II), is the latest addition to the Bloody FM podcast network!
Scout and Danielle started Talk Scary to Me when the pair reflected during the Covid shutdown on their shared fan-hood of “Dr. Drew’s Love Line” and realized their personal conversations and shared experiences growing in Hollywood and horror could open up a new venue for people to talk about subjects that might otherwise be considered taboo.
In Scout’s own words, “We thought we’d create a place where we could make the uncomfortable…comfortable to speak about.”
Harris adds, “I’ve always wanted to be the ‘Barbara Walters of the Horror Genre’ and with my love of Howard Stern’s brilliant interviews that give the fans a REAL look inside of the lives of their favorite artists, I knew I could make it happen with the support of my friends in the genre and horror fans alike. Scout and I are like Peanut Butter and Jelly. Salty and sweet and fine on our own, but fucking perfect when they’re together. Our friendship has only grown stronger over the past 100 episodes and our teaming up with Bloody Disgusting is just the beginning of many more projects to come. Buckle up, it’s gonna be a “Killer” ride!”
With Danielle and Scout having close personal relationships with basically everyone on screen (and behind the camera) in the horror genre, Talk Scary to Me brings horror fans a completely different and very intimate side of the genre. Not being afraid to have the uncomfortable conversations surrounding sex and opening up about their own personal struggles, each episode gives the fans a look inside the lives of their favorite Scream Queens and Killers alike.
Scout Taylor-Compton started her career when she was just 8 years old, working on the Jay Leno Show for two years. Moving on to TV shows such as Charmed, Gilmore Girls and every cop show you can imagine throughout her childhood, Scout’s first theatrically released movie was Sleepover opposite Steve Carrell, Brie Larsen and Evan Peters, to name a few, but her rise to fame accelerated when she beat the competition to land Rob Zombie’s Halloween as the iconic Laurie Strode. This was her introduction to the horror genre where she’s starred in Ghost House, April Fool’s Day, The Long Night and so much more. Scout’s career is poised to branch out in the near future as she has an interest in getting behind the camera and has a few projects she’s directing next year including some in the genre. She’s also penning a semi-autobiographical book series based on her life growing up in a mortuary.
Danielle Harris began her modeling and acting career at the young age of 7 when she won a talent search competition and garnered the attention of kids agents from all over the world. When an audition came her way for a horror genre feature film, she couldn’t wait to get in there and show off her crying and screaming skills to the producers and director. Beating out hundreds of girls for the lead role of Michael Myers’ niece, Jamie Lloyd in Halloween 4, Danielle’s love of making horror movies was born. In 2007, Danielle fought her way in to the room for Rob Zombies remake of Halloween, convincing the studio that she could come back as a different character AND with the fans support and love, her career in horror was reignited and in full effect. With fifty+ feature horror films to her name, she has now been branded as a “horror icon” and loves being a part of this amazing community that is truly like none other.
