We’re creeping into the dark side of the web and getting entangled with the Japanese techno-horror “Pulse” and the real-life inspired “Cam”.
THIS EPISODE: “Pulse” (20o1) AND “Cam” (2018) WITH AMBER T
We’ve been subsumed into the Net, ghouls. But it’s okay; we’ve got friends in here.
We’re talking to our friend Amber, host of our fellow horror podcast HornBloodFire about a double feature based on keywords: isolation, Internet, surreal — Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s darkly prescient vision of Internet apocalypse, Pulse (2001), and Isa Mazzei and Daniel Goldhaber’s folkloric tale of camming and doppelgangers, Cam (2018).
Are you Online? This episode is for you. Raise your hand if you’ve got ban anxiety, and/or if you’ve ever gotten super worried about a Twitter mutual’s mental health. If you’re not online, this episode still has plenty of discussions that might interest you, like Amber’s fear of whales (not Wales) and stairs, the fantasy of a sexy double, and the joy of yucking other people’s yum.
Sounds good? We’ll meet you in the red tape room.
