The Witching Hour Episode 5: ‘Searching’ & the Rise of Screenlife with Timur Bekmambetov

     August 28, 2018


Welcome to The Witching Hour! Collider’s horror podcast, co-created and co-hosted by Horror Editor Haleigh Foutch and Senior Editorial Producer Perri Nemiroff. Last week, we dug into the world of Stephen King with Castle Rock, Mr. Mercedes and the best and worst of his film and TV adaptations.

This week, we’re happy to welcome director and producer Timur Bekmambetov to the studio for a chat about all things Screenlife — the term Bekmambetov coined for films told only from the perspective of digital devices. With the thriller Searching rolling out in theaters this month, we sat down for an extended chat with Bekmambetov to discuss why he’s so passionate about the format and how he’s making it easier for everyone to access.
