Thanks Vinegar Syndrome! Buy Phase IV.

Stice’s Satyricon (2022): Discussion begins. This 45-minute green screen video album from an oddball outfit called Stice is loosely based on the “Satyricon,” and, as you can see in the trailer below, is perhaps even more surreal than Fellini’s version.  This Blu-ray popped up out of nowhere onto our radar this week. Buy Stice’s Satyricon.

Where the Devil Roams (2023): Discussion begins. Read Giles Edwards’ Apocrypha Candidate review. The Adams family’s latest horror film is about a family of serial-killing Depression-era carnies, and witchery. On Blu-ray with a making of featurette, bonus short film, and more.  Buy Where the Devil Roams.


We have no guest scheduled for next week’s Pod 366—although it is possible someone will pop up. In written reviews, Shane Wilson tackles one that ain’t Fellini (but is close) with the experimental hybrid documentary How Strange to Be Named Federico (2013), while Gregory J. Smalley digs into La Chimera (see above). Also, expect unannounced bonus content. Onward and weirdward!
