Mike and Jenny are joined by Horror Queers co-host and Bloody Disgusting contributor Trace Thurman to discuss Paul Verhoeven's cult favorite Showgirls. They discuss whether the film is camp classic or a pointed satire, the insanity that is Elizabeth Berkley's performance, if the movie is erotic in anyway, and many, many, MANY other things.

Mike and Jenny tackle two much anticipated films released this past month with Ari Aster's Hereditary follow-up, Midsommar, and what will supposedly be Quentin Tarantino's penultimate film Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood. They discuss whether their anticipation was met for each film, the ambition of each of the filmmakers, Tarantino's knack for casting, and the coincidence that both these films involve cults.

Mike and Jenny set sail on another 100 episodes with a discussion of Christian Petzold's post-World War II noir Phoenix. They discuss the tremendous performance of Nina Hoss, changing the visual palette of a WWII film, and how bothered does it make you if the central conflict of a story could be cleared up in a conversation.
