Episode 31: Heavenly Creatures
16-year-old Pauline Parker and her best friend, 15-year-old Juliet Hulme murdered Pauline’s mother to try to avoid being separated. The story of their friendship and rich fantasy life was brought to the screen in 1994’s Heavenly Creatures, directed and co-written by Peter Jackson. This is based on a true crime. We’re super-excited to re-record this episode since it was the topic of our first episode and had not only some ‘debut show’ nervousness, but also some sound engineering problems. So we’re happy to give you an all-new yet familiar episode about Pauline Parker, Juliet Hulme, and Heavenly Creatures!
