Your Home for Horror

It’s a spooky double feature with a couple of very special guests. Join us “live” as we discuss “Ghostwatch” and “WNUF Halloween Special”.

THIS EPISODE: “Ghostwatch” (1992) AND “WNUF Halloween Special” (2013) with Lesley Manning and Chris LaMartina

October is finally here, and boy, do we have some spooky season programming for you. Live from Not Your Final Girl HQ (not really, but we’re suspending our disbelief here), Candace and Ariel are talking about two phenomenal Halloween specials — the iconic and terrifying “live” broadcast Ghostwatch (1992) and the acerbic “live” news special WNUF Halloween Special (2013) – with their respective filmmakers, Lesley Manning and Chris LaMartina.

It was an absolute honor and so much fun to get these guests together and discuss the importance of verisimilitude, the horrors of both the supernatural and the mundane, revealing your DNA in your work, capturing the essence of live TV, and what niche subset of found footage these films occupy.

If you haven’t seen these movies, we highly recommend you watch them as a double feature (and check out Out There Halloween Megatape after). You can thank us later. Let us know how many times you catch a glimpse of Pipes.

You can follow Lesley Manning, director of Ghostwatch, on Instagram here, and visit her website here. Follow Chris LaMartina, writer, director, and producer of WNUF Halloween Special, on Twitter here, and buy Out There Halloween Megatape (aka WNUF Halloween Sequel) here.

You can watch Ghostwatch right here on archive.org and WNUF Halloween Special also here on archive.org
