Why Lucky McKee’s THE WOMAN Is a Powerful Nod to Femininity

Happy Friday, fellow extremists! How about closing out your hectic work week with an adorable little piece of animation? Of course, your definitions of “adorable” may differ from mine… but in this case, it means a sticky, blood-smeared, hairy, screeching, slime-spurting epic of apocalyptic proportions. That is, the outrageously twisted (and award-winning) 2011 film BOBBY […]

My vague memory of RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH VOL. 1 was that it originally started as one epic film which was then split into two, and that both were being filmed simultaneously!
