This time Richard and Chris got a chance to sit down and talk about some of the films they’ve seen lately at the best film festival in the world, Fantastic Fest, in Austin Texas at the Alamo Drafthouse. And boy, do they have a few doozys for ya.

HIGH-RISE

THE WITCH
One of the most anticipated films this year and shockingly by a first time director, this story of a pilgrim family being destroyed by a malevolent force in the woods may even be Oscar bait this year.

Written by

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
