It's a minisode! The Poughkeepsie Tapes may be too scary to contain in one episode, so we teamed up with the Victims and Villains podcast for a great discussion about a really creepy, controversial movie about the details of a serial killer's decade of terror as captured on videotape. NOTE: This was our first Skype capture, so we may sound slightly different at times.
We start off with an interview with Josh from Victims and Villains, Chelsea then dives into the background of some notorious snuff films and finally we jump a discussion all about The Poughkeepsie Tapes film! To complete the experience, check out the Victims and Villains podcast!
