Overlook Hour Podcast Show Notes #245

Familiarize yourself with Valeri Milev's work. The man is an incredible talent and it's insane more people in the horror scene don't know his name.


Redundancy is terrifying to me



Valeri Milev directed this video for Ivo Dimchev and I don't know what he's singing about, but I like it


Project Zenit - Қанағаттандырылмағандықтарыңыздан AKA the video that started it all


If you are on the fence about checking out Bullets of Justice, check out the trailer and you'll be sold


Wrong Turn, Valeri Milev style
