Showrunner Ian Carpenter and creator Aaron Martin join cast members David Cronenberg, Rachael Crawford, and Paula Brancati for a panel discussion about combining elements of traditional murder mystery with the intense horror and bold kills that audiences have come to expect. They will also share a first look trailer. Moderated by Bloody Disgusting’s Meagan Navarro.
