Paid in Puke S6E7: Fatal Attraction

On today’s episode, we’re talking about a film that won’t be ignored: Adrienne Lynne’s 1987 problematic as-HELL thriller, “Fatal Attraction”. This film was a box office smash that starred Glenn Close, Anne Archer, and we guess a little bit Michael Douglas. It tells the story of woman named Alex, a 34-year-old NYC book editor who becomes impregnated after sleeping with a married man she meets through work. When she expresses an interest in having a relationship with him, he becomes violent and irrational, eventually coercing his wife into murdering her. 

What a piece of work is man!

Paid in Puke S1E8: Black Christmas (2019)

black-christmas

Sofia Takal’s re-imagining of the beloved 1974 horror film keeps our yuletides dark (but in a good way)! Black Christmas responds well to a modern social justice revamp, but you’ll never guess who DIDN’T like it (hint: #notallmen). Sure, there are some Hot Probs, but it’s nothing that hasn’t befallen a million dude-helmed horror movies before it. Black Christmas stars Imogen Poots and the absolutely dee-lightful Alesye Shannon.

We also ask: What holiday object would be your weapon of choice when battling a group of enrobed misogynists?
