podcast is gonna be a while, as the area we wanted to visit and record in was pretty badly flood damaged

I never used to be all that interested in horror, but I'm getting more and more into it. Not slasher stuff and zombies, which I still find pretty boring, but creepy supernatural business. I'm loving reading Stephen King, Shen and I have been playing Project Zero
and I always like learning about the creepy legends behind ghost Pokemon.Ring
is really bloody good. It has an excellently creepy and tense atmosphere, the characters act reasonably and the plot makes sense. What makes it so unique is that the entire film builds to one scare, with a constant build and release of tension. I'd love to have seen this without knowing the iconic scene in advance because it was seriously something special.
I also loved the surreal and creepy imagery in the video itself. You can easily see the line from that to modern creepypasta videos and stuff, with cursed youtube videos and game cartridges. Excellent stuff.
It also makes me kind of want to see the American one now, just to see if they pull it off. Somehow it just doesn't sound as good in my head when you replace Sadako with Samara . . .
