Fresh (Cave 2022)

Soup to nuts this film has it all! It is so good, we are releasing this episode out of order. We just can’t wait to share such a spectacular feast for aficionados of fine horror. It is a perfectly balance plate of critical ideology, tension, terror, and visceral revulsion. Daisy Edgar-Jones absolutely shines!

There is lots more of our podcast! Please listen, review, subscribe, and tell your friends.
