Quick links/Discussed in this episode:

Dickshark (2016): Discussion begins. Read our anonymous reviewer’s review. We gave this nudie horror comedy low marks, but it has its fans, judging by the Kickstarter campaign that resulted in this 2-Blu Collector’s Edition that includes a reported 6+ hour cut of the movie, plus 2 hours of behind the scenes footage. So if you liked Satantango, but wished it was in color, almost entirely composed of full-frontal nudity, and full of penis monsters, Dickshark is calling your name. Buy Dickshark.

Divinity (2023): Discussion begins. Read Giles Edwards’ apocrypha candidate review. Black and white dystopian would-be cult film that’s been dividing critics down the middle, with some camps claiming its just pretentious, and others saying its pretentious but wild enough for a recommendation. You can find out if it will be playing at a theater near you at Divinity official site.

Identikit (1974): Discussion begins. Read El Rob Hubbard’s review (as part of the “House of Psychotic Women” box set). stars as a bonkers lady in a bonkers movie. Formerly available only in the “Psychotic Women” box set, now on a solo Blu-ray (or VOD). Buy Identikit.

Videodrome (1983): Discussion begins. Read the Canonically Weird entry! You know it, you (presumably) love it; it’s the latest weird movie in the canon to get an upgrade to 4K UHD. All hail the new disc format! Buy Videodrome.

WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE:

No guest lined up for next week’s Pod 366 (although more guests are coming, we promise). In written reviews next week, we take out three items from the reader-suggested queue: Shane Wilson looks at Francis Ford Coppola‘s overlooked Youth Without Youth (2007), Giles Edwards visits Motel Hell (1980), and Gregory J. Smalley jumps on the newest reader suggestion, Emesis Blue (2023), a feature-length fan psychological horror film made with the Team Fortress 2 SFM Engine. Onward and weirdward!
