Episode Notes

Lady problems. Double Feature scores listeners a Shudder deal! https://try.shudder.com/doublefeature can get you Shudder movies free for a month. The Beguiled is too morally clear, let’s add the confederacy! On Side A, Clint Eastwood is a lady problem. A genius use of flashback and unreliable narrator. What it takes to add a turn to the rape revenge film. Can rape revenge invert gender? On Side B, everything else is a lady problem. Thriller: A Cruel Picture: They Call Her One Eye. The mother of all exploitation films. Double Feature reaches for new levels of offensive. A notable eye-poke! Grindhouse cinema’s half-hearted revenge. A defense of Thriller: A Cruel Picture (but no one is going to defend “They Call Her One Eye”).
