Our season one finale is here! Strap in and hold on tight because this ride is about to go off the rails! This week we discuss one of our favorite horror movies of the year, The Perfection!

Topics include: our Halloween traditions, the inspiration for making this movie, how it felt to go into this movie TOTALLY blind as horror fans who love camp, we talk cults & grooming, we touch on the mental state of one of our main characters and the “psycho lesbian trope”, the ongoing theme of loss, we discuss Charlotte and Lizzie’s relationship and how thrilled we were to see a queer couple in a horror film, cinematography, music, THE WIG ON A WIG, what a sequel might look like (Lizzie/Charlotte rom-com anyone?), fun facts and trivia, and we hand out awards! Join us! Our next episode will be out 11/25 for our Thanksgiving special where we will discuss John Water’s Serial Mom from 1994!
