Cinema Covenant
A podcast where friends cast movies upon each other like a curse.

Maya Hansen and Toben Shelby

Toben: Classical "nerd", reared on all the films deemed "classic" by the net-savvy collective millennial unconscious. Maya: Artist (read: Stoner), left to fend on their own, drawn instead to body horror and Japanese animation. One picks a movie that the other one hasn't seen, and makes them watch it. They switch back and forth each episode. Repeat until the death of film.
