Candace and Ariel have been subsumed into the Net, ghouls. But it’s okay; they’ve got friends in there. This week, they’re talking to their friend Amber, host of horror podcast HornBloodFire, about a double feature based on keywords: isolation, Internet, surreal – Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s darkly prescient vision of Internet apocalypse, Pulse (2001), and Isa Mazzei and Daniel Goldhaber’s folkloric tale of camming and doppelgangers, Cam (2018).
Are you Online? This episode is for you. Raise your hand if you’ve got ban anxiety, and/or if you’ve ever gotten super worried about a Twitter mutual’s mental health. If you’re not online, this episode still has plenty of discussion that might interest you, like Amber’s fear of whales (not Wales) and stairs, the fantasy of a sexy double, and the joy of yucking other people’s yum. Sounds good? We’ll meet you in the red tape room.
Amber T is host of HornBloodFire podcast, reviewer and writer for Ghouls Magazine, Grimoire of Horror and Beauty of Horror. She loves J Horror, female rage and talking shit on Twitter.
