It's episode 254...and today I'm going to be taking the World's Fair challenge.
We're All Going to the World's Fair (2022) tells the story of Casey, a lonely young woman who finds companionship and purpose though taking part in a strange online role playing game called The World's Fair Challenge. As she updates the world on the physical and psychological changes she feels since taking the challenge, she forms an unusual and co-dependent connection with another individual who may have nefarious motives.
We talk about one of the most unique films we've ever covered, share our experiences with the dark corners of the internet, unpack the film's various allegories and deeper meanings and also dish out advice on how to create the most addictive and compulsive online video platform without care for your viewers.
Whatever happens, one thing's for sure: someday soon, I am just gonna disappear, and you won't have any idea what happened to me.
We're back in two weeks with 'American Southern Gothic psychological horror drama film' What Josiah Saw (available on Shudder in the UK).
