In today’s sci-fi/horror climate, there is a dire lack of practical FX driven films. Age old classics, such as John Carpenter’s The THING, and The Blob ’88 relied almost exclusively on practical FX (with sometimes more than a dash of stop-motion animation) to convince us that these harrowing tales had a reality to them that were ‘real world’. In this episode, Andrew and Elbee discuss practical FX creature feature Harbinger Down, a film that aims to fulfill the chasm that has been left in the wake of CG fx driven movies, and see how it lives up to its hype.
Podcast Manager’s Note: Please bear in mind that this was the 2nd episode we recorded and were still trying to find our sea legs, as it were (as well as contending with technical difficulties). That said, subsequent episodes should be even more enjoyable than this.
