It is easy to look at natural horror films about existing creatures and threats, but what about discoveries? When are new creatures considered natural? What about films like The Creature From The Black Lagoon, Godzilla, Tremors, The Meg, and the Silence? Are these natural horror films, and if so, what makes them natural? The episode also looks at the British TV show Fortitude, with a few spoilers.  This episode is a bit late, but it was already mostly done, so I'm putting it out anyway.
