This is really good, Paul! I’ve never watched this film myself. Although you made spoiler alert in the beginning, I decided to go with your podcast instead of watching the film myself first. It turned out it was a right decision – you made the podcast very visual and the temp is not as fast as most of the films. The story was very eerie and you did a wonderful job to deliver it!
Now it’s only part1 and I can’t wait for subsequent episode. Wanted to watch the film to know what happened to Luke but didn’t want spoil your next episode lol. Will hold off waiting for your next one! Thanks for making the podcast!
