Episode 16: Phantom Time-Traveling Space Yetis (Found Footage Horror)

Released Monday, 24th May 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
Jake's time has finally come! As Scary Stuff's resident fan of found footage horror, Jake has put together a special quartet of movies for an episode dedicated entirely to that subgenre. It might have been a long wait to get here, but we couldn't be happier with the results. This is some of the most fun we've had recording an episode thus far. The first movie up is Devil's Pass (2013) from director Renny Harlin, the movie that gave birth to the "Too Stupid To Live" moment Jake discussed all the way back in Episode Two.  Next up is Savageland (2015), a "mockumentary" style movie that all three of our hosts feel deserves much more attention. And to help spotlight it, author Gabino Iglesias (who's currently accepting submissions for an anthology of found-footage horror stories) was kind enough to come onto our pod to discuss it with us!  We also have a special guest for our next movie: Butterfly Kisses (2018). For this one, we're joined by Trevor Henderson, a fabulous artist whose work decidedly reflects the influence of found footage horror. Lastly we review Found Footage 3D (2016), which is currently available on Shudder and makes for an interesting meta companion piece to Butterfly Kisses.

We hope you have as much fun listening to this episode as we did recording it. We also hope you support our special guests: Gabino Iglesias has multiple works available on Amazon (our host Eric particularly recommends the novel Zero Saints), and Trevor Henderson offers prints of some of his works at  https://trevorhenderson.format.com/

And as always, thanks so much for listening!!

CW: some of the movies in the episode include references to self-harm and/or suicide, which are likewise mentioned in our discussions.
