In today’s episode of the CinEffect podcast, Chris & Alex dive into the various layers of Cloud Atlas. Does it really succeed in its lofty ambitions? Also being discussed: Silent Hill Revelation 3D is terrible, The Innkeepers is surprisingly effective old-school horror, and Hotline Miami is an adrenaline rush of a game. Oh, and Chris’s voice sounds like God for some weird reason.
