WNUF Halloween Special
Directed by Chris LaMartina
In 1987, a TV news team tried to contact spirits in a haunted house. But something went wrong. Three decades later, the recording of this spooky special has finally surfaced and viewers can now see what really went on that fateful night - complete with commercials! Think GRINDHOUSE meets PARANORMAL ACTIVITY and you’ll know what to expect from this hilarious parody of found footage horror. Anyone who watched ‘80s TV is sure to laugh at the scarily accurate fake ads for video rental stores (remember those?), psychic hotlines and Satanic panic books. Watch if you dare...

Reminded me of sneaking to watch scary movies on tv as a kid would put this on for my uninitiated in horror friends and family.
on point! even fills my crt monitor
A fun little riff on low-budget 1980s local television, ridiculous live specials like Geraldo Rivera's "The Secret of Al Capone's Vault" and the very real '80s "Satanic Panic." It's a bit corny, but that's definitely intentional. It's probably best suited to people who were kids back in the 1980s.
Okay, I appreciate the work and dedication it took to make 80 minutes of authentic 1987 public access television. What I can't appreciate is how anyone would want to watch 80 minutes of 1987 public access television, especially when 50 of those minutes are commercials.
After what seemed like two hundred fake commercials I gave up. There wasn't much time for the story. Maybe they couldn't come uo with one.
