80: The Interior with Leslie Hatton
It's Spring and we're back in the wilderness with pop culture writer Leslie Hatton. Leslie brings us a bizarre and spooky gem from 2015, The Interior. This unconventional horror thriller is almost impossible to describe or spoil...mostly because on paper it shouldn't work but is surprisingly effective. Love to camp? We talk about how you may not want to again, how filmmakers prey on your deep-seated childhood fears, the challenge in transitioning genres within a film, and recommendations for more scary outdoor wilderness movies.
Stay tuned for Becky's vicious takedown on the Twin Peaks revival and Leslie's great insight on how to not be a cynical jerk when reviewing pop culture. The Interior is pretty darn easy to get ahold of, screening on Hollywood Suite Connect on a regular basis, and available for a dollar on iTunes and Google Play.
This week's end credit music is the renowned pianist, Tiffany Poon playing Chopin Nocturne in E-Flat Major Op 9 No 2.
