161 – The Blair Witch Project

In 1994, 3 student film makers vanished in the woods. They were in search of an ancient evil, called ‘The Blair Witch’. In 2016, more film makers went to the same woods…. and vanished. Both groups footage was found later and pieced together into a movie and it’s sequel. This week, we’re digging deep into the ‘Blair Witch’ franchise!

The film that rocketed the found footage genre into one of the most popular styles of horror, did more than just scare the audience. It taught future marketing guys how to use the internet for viral marketing. The sequel, brings it all full circle, but does it succeed in the same was as the original?

Join the ’40 Going On 14′ guys, as they pitch a tent, turn on the video cameras and get ready for action. Oct-O-Boo continues with ‘The Blair Witch Podcast’! Has anybody seen the map?

137 – Pee Wee’s Big Movies!

If you grew up in the late 80’s and early 90’s, then Pee-wee Herman is a name you’ll already be familiar with. A man-child in a gray suit and a red bow tie. The poster child for kitschy pop culture propaganda.

This week, we’re spending some time with the original Tim Burton classic, ‘Pee-wee’s Big Adventure’ and then following it up with the Netflix original film, ‘Pee-wee’s Big Holiday’!

We can already tell the Pee-wee is buzzing with excitement, right Pee-wee?

I know you are, but what am I?
