Jason Henderson of Castle of Horror/ Castle Talk Podcast invites Anthony Rotolo of TV TERROR podcast to discuss the Movie-of-the-Week golden age, podcasting, and more. We range and rove the hidden valley of programming past, a fertile land once inhabited by giants. They're gone, but their stories live on. You'll hear tell of scary hippies, zuni fetish dolls, and things that lurk in dark shadows and collective memory, and how oral tradition continues through the art and craft of podcasting. LISTEN IN...Special thanks to Jason for allowing me to feature this recording as an installment of TV TERROR.
Happy Thanksgiving! Nothing evokes the day like an E.T. home invasion, so that's our topic this time out. It's the obscure UPN film, ALIEN ABDUCTION: INCIDENT IN LAKE COUNTY, a found footage film released one year before Blair Witch popularized the sub-genre, all about a hapless family who finds themselves besieged by otherworldly invaders. We also chat about The Munsters, so grab a drumstick and join us, won't you?
It's a Shirley Jackson themed episode as TV TERROR explores the new Netflix series, The Haunting of Hill House (2018) and an older adaptation of her famous short story, The Lottery (1969).
