In this episode, we chat about avant-garde horror and focus on two works of cinema in particular, Antichrist by Lars Von Trier and Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom. During the course of this dialogue, we chat about horror story-telling, Pearson’s quest to find the most fucked up movie ever made, violence, patriarchy, and fascism.
