Ep. 04-20: Seven (1995)

Seven (1995) is the story of two homicide detectives tracking down a sadistic serial killer (Kevin Spacey) who chooses his victims according to the seven deadly sins. Brad Pitt is Detective David Mills, a hopeful but naive rookie who finds himself partnered with veteran Detective William Somerset (Morgan Freeman). Together, they trace the killer’s every step, witnessing the aftermath of his horrific crimes one by one, all the while moving closer to a gruesome fate neither of them could have predicted.


Welcome back to the world of serial killers. We don’t land on this planet very often because, as David points out, there’s a fine line between a horror story and a thriller. David Fincher captures supreme dread in this gem with really no glimmer of hope at all (which is why Tim feels it falls into the horror category). Join us as we discuss the heavy-hitting roster of talent behind this film and the response of both critics and audiences to its grim perspective. Listen, as Johnny has the Keys escorts you to a dark, rainy, and nameless city, where violence and murder are common and you may easily become part of a sociopathic artist’s masterpiece.
