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!

You can read the full explanation and the background on the re-release of The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast (and of Horror Metropolis) at the bottom of the show notes for this episode.

SHOW NOTES:

For this truly excellent show, Episode 025, we bring you a Frankensteined amalgam of three EPIC reviews that we’ve recorded on different nights — weeks apart — with the plan in mind that we’d assemble these into this Monster show (much like you heard us do with Episodes 013 and 014).

You’ll hear reviews of “The Grapes of Death” (1978), “The Uninvited” (2009) — and last but not least — a knock-down, drag-out discussion of “Grave Encounters” (2011) and the Found Footage convention, with special guest host Evil Mike Maryman of the Evil Episodes podcast, which covers TV and Web-based horror.

The Weekly Horror Movie Podcast is hosted by Midnight Corey, along with his co-hosts BillChete, Dr. Shock and Terror Tovey. TWHMP is a weekly show where each host assigns a horror movie to another one of the hosts, round-robin style. Continue reading
