We’re back and we’re heading out for a night on the town, or at least what’s left of the town. Apparently, this new dinner theatre is to die for. Their menu is light on vegetarian options and the play is pretty incoherent, but you take what you can get in times like these. Unfortunately, one of the other guests keeps ranting about how meat is murder. People like her just eat us up inside. Still, we’re going to ignore her doomsaying and paint the town red!
Main Topic: Cadaver
This episode is our look at the 2020 horror/science fiction film, Cadaver, currently available on Netflix. It’s the first feature from Norwegian writer/director Jarand Herdal. This grim post-apocalyptic tale of theatrics and cannibalism divided us at least as much as any film we’ve seen before. Be prepared for some spirited debate.
Once again, the pandemic means we recorded this episode remotely. Apocalyptic films seem so much more mundane when you’re living in lockdown.
