Topics include:

Meta horror, the death of a parent, themes of the movie, cinematography (it’s amazing!), the monster and it’s rules (typical slasher), the music (such as Bette Davis Eyes and Like A Prayer), endless gushing over Angela Trimbur’s performance (call us, we love you!), the end fight scene and stripping, what a sequel might look like, favorite kills, the absurdity of dumping m&m’s into popcorn, we hand out awards to the movie, and ask: WHERE’S THE BEEF!
