It’s time to KETCHUP (or “Catch Up”, if you will) on what we’ve been watching.
Seeing as it has been a long-time since we last spoke about all the films we’ve been consuming in between episodes we decided this was the opportune time to discuss the 19(!!) movies that crossed our eyeballs since episode 100.
And what a mix it is as we get a duo of found footage, a punk rock documentary, some Argento by way of Arrow Video, Mr. Rogers, Josh gets a DEATH WISH (2), a slew of top notch 2018 films, and we discover the greatness that is Richard Barathy.
If you were a horror geek like we were in the late 80’s and early 90’s, chances are you discovered the glory of shot-on-video in your search for the latest, greatest scare flick. Something that your group of friends would rent on a Friday night and marvel at the low-budget shenanigans within. Movies that even you might be able to make in your own backyard.
That’s why we’ve brought on filmmaker/writer Richard Mogg to talk all about his just released book, Analog Nightmares: The Shot on Video Films of 1982-1995, which covers over two-hundred(!) films as well as containing interviews with such SOV luminaries as Tim Ritter (Truth or Dare), Donald Farmer (Cannibal Hookers) and Ron Bonk (She Kills).
Tune in for a lively discussion about the SOV era filled with stories and laughs as we also each pick 5 (or, in Chris’ case, 4) films we think you should check out.
