In this episode, we return to the found footage subgenre to tackle our first listener-requested episode by checking out Renny Harlin’s Devil’s Pass from 2013. This documentary-style horror flick is based on the many conspiracy theories surrounding the real world Dyatlov Pass Incident. We get into all that and some other conspiracies the film manages to cleverly wrap into its narrative. Jason debates what the best Renny Harlin film is. Dustin swings down the criticism hammer on poorly used CGI. Michael questions whether the film could be considered Lovecraftian or not. And so much more!
Going forward we will start working in episodes based on listener-requested films as a regular part of the rotation. If you haven’t noticed, we take turns with who pitches what we cover so it will be like you the listeners are the fourth member of the show. We want to cover it all. Whether it is a film that you think needs more love, a genre we don’t tend to tackle as often, one you’d like to see some deeper discussion going on for, or even if you just want to troll by subjecting us to something crazy. You can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us directly on your favorite form of social media.
We’d like to give a special thanks to Adrian for suggesting we check this one out.
