Came for the Death Blood stayed for the gang

I only tuned into episode #211 to hear a specific interview with Bay Area filmmaker Chris DePretis but the hosts were hilarious the whole way through and talked about such a diversity of films that I will stay subscribed. From the local indie film scene to auteur set dressing in Marie Antoinette to the performances in Kalifornia, I love that the hosts will give any movie its due (even if that includes found footage horror of which I am still skeptical). I love how casual and down to Earth the show is. It’s just three buddies shooting the breeze about movies. Great background chatter and you’ll learn something too.

Awesome podcast for movies in SF

Listener Sam here! Sorry I didn’t leave a comment earlier! It’s an awesome show. Love getting to hear about screenings I get a chance to see, the the commentary is great. If any of you ever see me at the drafthouse say “hi” and I’ll buy you a drink!

the Three Friends ,

great local genre show

These guys provide an invaluable service to the community through their absolute devotion to local and indie horror. You get incredibly knowledgable hosts who do it for nothing more than a very pure love of the form speaking to interesting guests, many of whome would never find a platform anywhere else.
