Perdita Durango (1997) feat. Kay Lynch

Make sure those human fetuses are refrigerated properly because we're hitting the road with Rosie (fucking) Perez and Javier Bardem in Álex de la Iglesia's controversial film Perdita Durango (1997), which only just saw the release of its uncut version last year! Joining us for the trip is Salem Horror Fest's Festival Director Kay Lynch!

Join us as we look at the film's origins as a sequel to Wild at Heart (yes, really) before discussing the films taboo and challenging subject matter. Rosie Perez's career-best performance forces us to rationalize loving a character who commits so many heinous acts.

Oh, and content warnings aplenty for this one because we've got filicide, f-slurs, voodoo rituals, copious amounts of cocaine, blood sacrifices, corpse mutilations, grave desecrations and, in the words of the director himself, consensual rape??? And that's all just in the film's first hour!
