Episode 18: Shot-on-Video Horror, feat. Patrick Ripoll of Tracks of the Damned
TAKE A TRIP BACK TO THE GOLDEN AGE OF WTF DIY HOME VIDEO HORROR! I REALLY WISH I HADN’T USED UP MY ‘ADJUST YOUR TRACKING’ REFERENCE ON THE FOUND-FOOTAGE HORROR DESCRIPTION!
Strap in for part one of a three-part look back at an era when three teenagers with a camcorder could shoot a horror movie without a script and sell it to video rental stores across the country. Gabe and special guest/co-host Patrick Ripoll of Tracks of the Damned do their best to parse the mind-melting world of shot-on-video (SOV) horror movies. Their total list came dangerously close to 100 titles and, while they were only able to watch around half of those between them, Patrick did enough research to at least describe some of the unobtainable obscurities we weren’t able to stream, buy, or even pirate. Part one includes 21 movies, 11 of which we cover in-depth. Part two will be available early next month and part three (hopefully) two weeks after that.
