Not Your Final Girl Podcast: Reality Reset With Josh And Mels From Blackheart Collective

by Brendan M. Allen

This week, enter the metaverse (not that one) with Candace and Ariel. They had Josh and Mels from Blackheart Collective on to talk about the mechanics and interpersonal dynamics of immersive horror, along with slasher cultural reset The Cabin in the Woods (2011) and haunting ode to internet horror and the ephemeral relationships it engenders, We’re All Going to the World’s Fair (2021).

Note: There’s good news and bad news. The good news is that Candace and Ariel restructured their recording process around the background noise in this episode. We recorded it a while ago. The bad news is that there’s a lot of background noise in this episode. They hope you like it anyway. They’re both really excited about these movies, especially We’re All Going to the World’s Fair, which is in theaters now.

Josh watched Cabin Fever by accident (another great one), and Mels schooled the hosts on World’s Fair history – it was a blast. They’ll always have dumbass waterfall.
