Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast, and happy Spooky Movie Month! Grab yourself a red (wine, rooibos, platelet drink?) and turn down the lights, because your hosts are thrilled to be covering Derek Lee and Clif Prowse's 2013 found footage masterpiece, Afflicted! Cover your eyes and open your ears as Lisha waxes poetic about tragic characters, Jules gets excitable over the technical aspects of frugal filmmaking, and both of your podcasters marvel over the fact that two friends with a few cameras breathed new life into the tired 'ole vampire genre! We're hitting the ground running with a household favorite this month, folks, so prepare for some bloody fun!
