The Overlook Hour Podcast

The Overlook Theatre and Unnamed Footage Festival present The Overlook Hour Podcast! Join your hosts Clark Little (UFF Co-Founder, Ex-Standup, Brit Box Subscriber), Russell Fisher (UFF Co-Founder, The Overlook Theatre, D&D advocate), Randy Staat (Musician, Engineer, French New-Wave purist) and Oksana Osachiy (UFF Co-Founder, The Overlook Theatre, and Cat Enthusiast) for a weekly discussion and analysis of indie horror films with the occasional documentary, TV show, YouTube Video, dream, nightmare, bowel movement, etc… The Overlook Hour Podcast tricks very special guests from in and outside the industry to chat about a range of topics, so listeners get candid insight into some unique personalities that make the interesting films we so crave. The Overlook Hour Podcast is here to straddle the border of professionalism while creating discussion around interesting and important film that otherwise has none!

Finally, the boys got their act together and got their pal Mickey from The Three Friends Go Criterion on the show! The boys made Mickey do their homework assignment with them and everyone watched "Windows" from 1980. Mickey also talks about his show and how they are dealing with the pandemic. In the intro, Randy liked a Clint Eastwood film, Clark suffered through Capone and Russ has a new crush on Brandon Cronenberg.

We've been long overdue for a chat to catch up with co-founder of the Liverpool Horror Club and self-professed Overlook Hour fan, Chris Fairrie aka Zombieking. Chris tells the boys his life updates and how the Liverpool Horror Club is battling COVID-19. He also shares his extensive quarantine watchlist and gives more British television recommendations to Clark and Russ. In the intro, Randy watches another sad, dreary, foreign war film, Clark watches another "Cool Guy" movie and Russ watches a Japanese film based on a video game about cats. So.. the usual.

To add to the canon of “Local Podcasts that Are Better Than Us”, the boys touch base with one of the hosts of the Bay Area podcast “Scary Thoughts," Chad Lott. Chad tells the story of how his podcast began, how he rode across the country on a Vespa and why Tiger King sucks. In the intro, Randy saw a British film, Clark saw a British film and Russ saw Johnny Gruesome. And everyone joins in on the new release and long-awaited “Porno”.

After an absence that was far too long, Michael Fausti rejoins the boys to talk about his new film “Exit”. He talks to the boys about his influences, making a film with political commentary and the beauty of accents. In the intro, Randy hated the doc that Clark recommended while Russ and Clark hated the documentary that Randy recommended. Randy also caught up on some Polanski while Russ watched a very unique animation film that actually amazed Clark.

We were delighted to have former guest and current friend, Terrell Trotty join the show this week. Terrell catches the boys up on all the new reality shows he's been watching and even the ones that he's auditioned for. The episode kicks off with Clark and Russ talking about the long-awaited Gothic King Cobra documentary, King Cobra JFS Now It's A Party (available on YouTube). Randy did not really care for his homework assignment but was intrigued by a documentary that reminded him of "Vernon, Florida". Clark watched a series on this crazy town in Missouri and Russ almost admits that he enjoyed a documentary about Formula 1.

He also spends most of his time trading titles with Clark and Russ and even stumps them on a few. In the intro, Randy hops on to say he finally complied with "Compliance". Clark finally saw "Heavy Metal" and Russ joins Randy in their joint review of their Quarantine Assignment, "The Death Of Dick Long."
