Alice Lowe’s Prevenge is the latest in a recent line of horror movies about women attempting to navigate the difficult paths of motherhood and loss. Films like The Descent and The Babadook explored the emotional terror of trying to hold oneself together in the midst of agonizing grief. Prevenge seems to pay homage to these films – along with a heavy dose of Rosemary’s Baby, for good measure – but adds in a big helping of glib humor that doesn’t always land, but always keeps the film interesting.
Tyler and David discuss Dekalog and Pedro Almodovar.

In honor of our 10-year anniversary, we are posting our very first episode, recorded in March 2007. In it, you will hear two 25-year-olds as they try their hand at podcasting for the first time, with all of the unfunny jokes, smug attitudes, and lack of perspective that entails. You have been warned.
