Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 064: The Found Footage Convention in Horror and an Interview With Eduardo Sánchez, Co-Director of The Blair Witch Project

Found Footage FinalHave you ever wanted to hear the HMP hosts analyze the found footage format for hours, and then interview the co-director of “The Blair Witch Project,” Eduardo Sánchez? Good. Otherwise, Episode 064 of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST will be disappointing for you, because that’s exactly our agenda!

This is a special themed episode where we explore The Found Footage Convention in Horror. You’ll get in-depth discussion of the filmmaking convention with special guest Michael Steinberg of FoundFootageCritic.com, feature reviews of two recent found footage films “The Taking of Deborah Logan” (2014) and “Evidence” (2013), and even some Top 5 Found Footage Films lists from your hosts!

And our main event is an interview with Filmmaker Eduardo Sánchez. Sánchez is best known for co-directing the found footage trailblazer “The Blair Witch Project” (1999) and directing the more recent found footage Bigfoot landmark “Exists” (2014), the paranormal found footage potboiler “Seventh Moon” (2008), and the short found footage zombie segment of “V/H/S 2” (2013), titled “A Ride in the Park.”

Sánchez has also directed more traditionally shot and structured films such as the criminally underrated alien invasion nail-biter “Altered” (2006) and the paranormal horror thriller “Lovely Molly” (2011).

This episode is 3 hours and 45 minutes! Join us!

“Found Footage always gets beat up. It’s like the bastard child of Horror.” — Filmmaker Eduardo Sánchez Continue reading
