This week on The ALTER Tapes, Ryan and Joe discuss ‘The Thing That Ate The Birds‘ (2021) by co-directors Dan Gitsham & Sophie Mair. We dig into the legacy of the Moors, our plans for a feature and praise the short for showing the creature in full daylight. Plus: fun stuff like toxic coping mechanisms, trauma bonds, domestic abuse and alcoholism.

Premise: On the North Yorkshire Moors, Abel, Head Gamekeeper, discovers the thing that is eating his grouse.
