LR045 – The McPherson Tape w/ Andy Sell

Jason Dinges Lost Rhetoric, Podcast Leave a Comment

Andy Sell from Ghoul School: A Horror History Podcast joins me in a crossover episode to discuss the absolutely bonkers history behind the infamous McPherson Tape. The Original movie, called UFO Abduction, depicted a family in the throes of an alien abduction caught in real time on home video. Was it real? Was it a hoax? Was the US Government involved? The creative mastermind behind it all, Dean Alioto, tells his story often but will people accept it? Of course they won’t! This little film would come to serve as a blueprint & lay a lot of groundwork for future found footage films of the same ilk, namely The Blair Witch Project & Cloverfield.  Join us as we discuss not only the story behind the making of the film but all of the insanity that occured after it was made that led to the remake 10 years later…then all of the insanity that occured after that was made.  This story truly has it all…
