In this episode, Dave and I discuss the new weirdo flick from the director of It Follows. We talk about where it went wrong, what it got right, but mostly...we talk about how it bears an eerie, almost uncanny resemblance to Dave's novel The Last Projector. That's right, folks. We might have a case of some "inspiration" on our hands. Don't believe us? We think the evidence speaks for itself...

You can read the book that (maybe? probably? sort of? kind of?) inspired the film here.
