There's a lost town in Argentina, somewhere off the grid. Nobody knows how to get there, or why werewolves and witches seem so normal there, but everyone knows they have a radio station. Marcus and Melissa tune in to the offbeat Kirlian Frequency, a show where the eerie animation and creepy dialogue never seem to tell the same story. Melissa likens it to foreboding rural radio that's always got a warning; Marcus compares it to Welcome to Night Vale and explores its many Marshall McLuhan-isms.
Motion Picture Terror Scale: 1 (Marcus) / 1 (Melissa). Quality: 3/3. Did my future wife watch this movie? Yes! Does it pass the Bechdel test? No.
