Holy unresolved emotional baggage, Batman! This week, we unpack two genre mashups about the terrors of living in the past with a southern action horror mashup Saloum (Senegal & France, 2021) and the body snatched alien robot comedy The World's End (United Kingdom, USA & Japan, 2013). Also, we offer a dramatic reading of the epic IMDB summary for the upcoming Subspecies V: Blood Rise and chat about Gremlins: Curse of the Mogwai and Mad Heidi.
