At it’s heart, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer is a commentary on both the mutability of morality and the culpability of voyeurism. Or it’s a weirdly dark comedy, depends on how twisted your soul is.
A naked, greased-up elderly man who strangles people, eats their eyes and then scrubs off in a carwash. After watching The Greasy Strangler (2016), Veronica is not sure of anything anymore.
Jenna and Veronica bring I Watched It So You Don’t Have To segment to the podcast to discuss Gaspar Noe’s hyper violent dance-torture film Climax. They suspect this is actually the superior remake of Suspiria.
Ishtar’s reputation stinks. But do you know what stinks even more? The men that undermined director Elaine May at every opportunity throughout the production, shooting, editing and promotion of the film.
“The worst animated feature film of all time.” Argle-bargle or foofooraw? We find out!
We tend to think of Fascism as everyone “agreeing” to the same ideals, but those boundaries are rarely ever publicly decided. Instead of a commentary on what fascism does, Salo presents what it allows for.
A creepy carnival clown Hunger Games lead by Malcolm McDowell dressed as Marie Antoinette via Rob Zombie? Sadly, 31 was just a bloody, boring mess.

The charges against Martyrs range from misogyny, to torture porn, to support for getting what you want by any means necessary. It’s an unsettling and rightfully polarizing film, but I'd like to take a closer look at what exactly it is saying, and how many (if any) of these claims have validity.
La Grande Bouffe is a movie that drags out all of the worst qualities in humanity and society, mixes them with our most base and unpleasant bodily functions, and then wallows in them all like pigs in shit.
