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!

Back in May, The Overlook Hour and many of its extended family spent a transformative quarantine weekend binging films from the newly online Chattanooga Film Fest. In this week's episode, we're honored to sit down and talk with the man responsible, Chris Dortch. Chris explains the crazy story of how Trent Hagaa and Microsoft played a part in transforming his Tennessee film festival into an online success in just a few weeks. 

In the intro, Randy talks A24's First Cow, Clark isn't sure how to feel about The Assistant, and Russell begins to break down Vinyger Syndrome's "Amityville: The Cursed Collection" by covering its first entry "Amityville 4: The Evil Escapes".

Master filmmaker / masked murderer SlasherVictim666 joins us to promote his new film REEL 2. SV talks about his unpleasant/formative experiences in the "Red Room", his hunt for six hundred and sixty-six stars, and his endless pursuit to be the greatest director of all time. He also shares a few film recommendations!

In the intro, San Francisco film programmer, playwright, and author of House of Sparrows, David Robson returns to help analyze the David Mamet/Stuart Gordon film, Edmond. Randy's got a Moobi of the Week, Clark becomes a Hotdog Historian, and Russ is covered in the neon slime of Vice Squad from 1982.

Eastbay cinematographer, Jahsaudi Perkins returns to help us celebrate our 200th episode! Grab a beer and buckle up because this week we lament Severin's Mid-Summer Sale, cover a training video, and argue about vampires. About an hour in, Randy and Jahsaudi cover a couple of Abel Ferrara films, Clark catches up with ONE CUT OF THE DEAD, and Russell reviews Vinegar Syndrome's Bluray release of PALE BLOOD. Then the celebration comes to an end as we all share our thoughts on Blumhouse's new film, YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT.

Those of you who have listened to our nonsense for 200 episodes, thank you for not leaving. We here at The Overlook Hour love you and hope to bring you at least a couple more.

For those who are checking us out for the first time... we're sorry. <3

Closing out the episodes in the 100's is a Clark and Randy solo show. While Russ is away, the mice... you get it. Randy and Clark catch you up on 7500 and still don't know why the film is called 7500. Randy watched a Vietnamese action film while Clark finally saw Candyman.

Chad Crawford Kinkle isn't quite sure how he has cornered himself into telling backwoods cult stories with complicated female leads, but take it from us, he's 2 for 2. Chad joins the boys this week to talk about his new film "Dementer", its screening at the Chattanooga film festival, and the difficulties of making a film starring his sister. Chad also talks about his first feature "Jug Face" and gives the boys a history lesson on jugs.

In the intro, we hear about Randy's Mubi of the week, Clark runs us through Da Night Clark, and Russ breaks down Severin's Blu-ray release of The Uncanny. We also argue about Spike Lee's Da Five Bloods.

Using masks and props from a Halloween store, Jordan Downey was able to transform his low budget film into a high concept success. Jordan joins the boys to talk about his film "The Head Hunter" and wanting to make a fantasy film for horror fans. Also in the interview, it's the return of no one's favorite segment, "Chuggy's Dumb Question". 

In the intro, Randy saw a documentary about a Norwegian art thief, Clark teases next week's show and Russ actually talks about a television series before discussing our sneak peek at a previously unreleased future Intervision, title- "Franky and his Pals".

How does a war videographer end up making found footage horror films? That's what we are trying to find out during our chat with BASE director Richard Parry, who calls in from his remote location in Europe. Richard also talks about how he was able to form a relationship with the challenging star of the film.

In the intro, Randy watches a noir on Mubi, Clark is in love with “Dave” and Russ runs through Unearth's second Classics release “Dark Side of the Moon”. Oh, and we all saw the newest release on Amazon Prime, “The Vast of Night”.

A film suggestion by a former guest brings us to this week’s guest, HP Mendoza. HP is a San Francisco born filmmaker and musician who's made films ranging from musicals to ghost stories. He tells the boys about moving back to San Francisco, how much Japan loves horror film, and his love of found footage. In the intro, all three of the boys went all-in on the Chattanooga Film Festival, which held their festivities online this year. They go over the entire film lineup and discuss all the films they saw.

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.
