Dead Ringers Episode 35: AS ABOVE, SO BELOW + BLAIR WITCH (2016)

Nolan is joined by Kat AdamsEmily von Seele, and Philip Yount to discuss John Erick Dowdle’s As Above, So Below (2014) and Adam Wingard’s Blair Witch (2016). The crew share their thoughts on new discoveries and rewatches, as well as recent horror releases — including a review of Mike Flanagan’s Doctor Sleep (2019) (**Spoilers from 7:25 – 11:25**) — before the unresolved baggage from a lost family member spurs the group on a dangerous adventure into a forbidden zone (which is documented on video, of course).

Other movies/TV shows discussed on this episode: She-Ra And The Princesses Of Power (2018) (Netflix), Doctor Sleep (2019), Dawn Of The Dead (1978), Day Of The Dead (1985) (Shudder), The Blair Witch Project (1999) (Hulu), Bodied (2018) (VOD), Horror Noire: A History Of Black Horror (2019) (Shudder), The Little Stranger (2018) (HBO), Found Footage 3D (2017) (Shudder), The Hidden (1987) (VOD), Satanic Panic (2019) (VOD), Wounds (2019) (Hulu).
