Trigger Warning: This episode contains discussions of sexual assault and rape.
We’re tackling one of the most divisive horror sub-genres ever – the rape-and-revenge movie. Hopelessly misogynistic or empowering, feminist diatribes? We try to get to the bottom of what these stories say about the world we live in.
Contains discussions of Ms. 45 (1981), I Spit on Your Grave a.k.a Day of the Woman (1978), Motor Psycho! (1965), The Virgin Spring (1960), The Last House on the Left (1972), Baise-moi (2000), Monster (2003), Revenge (2017) and more.
