Content Warning: A smidge of animal cruelty is depicted in this movie, which we describe and may/may not do vocal sound effects for… John and Josh strapped microphones to the inside of their mouths for an entire day to bring you their first full-fledged found footage film review! This little gem blends found footage with possession/exorcism, folk horror, and [spoiler]. What a cool combination! A priest guy and a professional gadget-haver spend a lot of run time getting acquainted with one another and slowly building what will turn out to be a life-long friendship, though not without its ups and downs, all while a variety of priests come and go from their lives. Along the way, their learn valuable lessons about imperialism, how the church abuses its power over the population, and never leaving your buddy behind. Also, we kind of do a semi-review of the new movie Elevator Game at the end. So, you know, there’s that for ya. And, as a special bonus to our show-note readers, here’s the British TV Shows we invented in this episode, plus the band and album! British TV Shows that should exist: One House Tree Bunch of Love Heaven Basket Third Lane Mystery The Deacon's Revenge King Henry's Clunge The Dicar of Vibley And the Band - Album that should exist: Tale for the Blather – Their Sophomore Effort
