The Cell (2000)

Happy holidays, everyone! We usually take this week off, but we had an extra episode in the Horror Queers archives that we recorded back in October for the Nightstream Film Festival, and we thought we’d release it as a little holiday treat for all of you. That treat comes in the form of a discussion of all things J. Lo in Tarsem Singh's The Cell!

Join us as we enter the mind of a killer and try to figure out whether the film really is "style over substance," defend Lopez against the haters and discuss the implications of giving a serial killer an empathetic backstory (especially one that involves potential queerness).

Plus, suspension masturbation, a Sindel cameo and another Lizzie McGuire connection! The Cell really is a better Nightmare on Elm Street sequel than, well, some of the Nightmare on Elm Street sequels.
