Creepy convents, ghoulish nostalgia and full frontal science fiction - we've got something for everyone this week. We give an enthusiastic recommendation for Late Night with the Devil (Australia & United Arab Emirates, 2023) even though a movie theater fire robbed us of the ending, and we debate the Twitter crossfire about its brief use of generative AI. We unpack the chills and flaws of Immaculate (Italy & USA, 2024) and consider how personal religious experiences shape our contrasting interpretations of its disturbing ending. Marcus also gets nerdy talking about Lifeforce (United Kingdom, 1985) with Duane Barry and Jean Luc Picard.
