    Episode 145: Filmmaker Bret Lada and 28 Weeks Later (2007)

    Episode 145: Filmmaker Bret Lada and 28 Weeks Later (2007)

    This week we sit down with multi-hyphenate Bret Lada! He's the co-writer, director and star of The Andy Baker Tape, a new found footage horror film that combines food blogging and horror. We talk about his love of dark psychological thrillers, his relationship to genre films growing up and into adulthood and, of course, dig into filming The Andy Baker Tape during COVID.
    Then we turn our attention to 28 Weeks Later, the film that scarred him for life when he was a teenager. After discussing his horror story, we dig into the early 00s political critique and the way the themes it explores is still relevant in a different way under a pandemic. We dig into its forays into found footage, the horrifying dilemmas the characters are constantly forced to make and so much more.
    You can follow Bret Lada on Instagram and his website. You can follow The Andy Baker Tape on Twitter, Instagram and the website for more information.

    Episode 144: Writer/Director Addison Heimann and Scream 2 (1997)

    Episode 144: Writer/Director Addison Heimann and Scream 2 (1997)

    This week we chat with Addison Heimann! He's the writer/director behind the queer horror film Hypochondriac, which is currently in theaters and will be on VOD on August 5th. We chat about his childhood watching horror TV shows and how he finally got into horror movies, as well as his relationship to the genre growing up. Then we talk about mental health and breakdowns and how Hypochondriac pulls from very real and very personal situations.
    Then we dig into a classic, Scream 2. We discuss when we all first saw it, why it was so terrifying for Addison growing up and why it has resonated so much. We dig into the operatic nature of the film, the way it's one of our favorites but requires the first one, the deaths, the tragedy, Derek's singing, the over-the-top theater department, the set pieces...so much.
    Follow Addison on Instagram. And check out Hypochondriac if it's playing near you and you feel safe to do so. Otherwise, please support the movie on August 5th on VOD!

    Episode 143: Director Andrew Traucki and Deliverance (1972)

    Episode 143: Director Andrew Traucki and Deliverance (1972)

    This week we're joined by writer/director Andrew Traucki! He's an Australian filmmaker who made The Reef, Black Water and Black Water: Abyss as well as the found footage film The Jungle. His latest film, the standalone sequel The Reef: Stalked is out Friday in theaters and streaming on Shudder. His Scarred for Life moment was from the film Deliverance (1972), a film that established the "hillbilly horror" subgenre and has given a lasting legacy of tourism and filmmaking in Georgia as well as crafting a visual and audio cues surrounding the rural horror subgenre. We talk about The Scene, the banjos, eco-horror and the 70s idea of "masculinity in crisis"...all of which are sadly still pertinent today.
    Here's a link for the article by Isabel Machado on Deliverance.
    Andrew Traucki has a Facebook page for The Reef.

A Conversation With Friends

Honestly, there are so many podcasts these days it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. But listening to Terry and Mary Beth each week doesn’t feel like I’m listening to a podcast. It feels like I’m in a conversation with my friends.

I love how welcoming they are with their guests. They always seem to make them feel comfortable and that opens up and leads to some really great conversations.

This podcast is a true delight. I look forward to each new episode.

Best,
ASB

My favorite podcast

Terry and Mary Beth are two of my favorite people on the planet. They're some of the kindest, most hard-working people I know and thefact that they have a podcast together makes me smile at least once a day. The chemistry between them is delightful and I could listen to them talk about literally anything for hours on end. The guests they get are great(Justin Nordell's episode is my comfort podcast), they're HILARIOUS, and I hope the podcast never ends, at least not before I get to be on ;P.

Now I know MB is supposed to give a found footage recommendation for every review but I was hoping she could talk about Savageland? I feel it is highly underseen and incredibly scary. I feel it pairs well with Lake Mungo(absolutely haunting images) and The Bay(the event happens to a whole town). Thanks and I love you guys
