While fear of the dark and belief in the boogeyman may fade as we age (if we’re lucky), new frights inevitably pop up to fill the void. The season one finale of Sunlit Horror asks the ultimate question: is there anything more terrifying than growing up? Tune in as Anna investigates the role of fear, hormones, innocence, and predators in sunlit coming-of-age horror films IT (2017), Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975), Valerie and Her Week of Wonders (1970), and The Lost Boys (1987).
