Death Becomes Her

 

Episode posted July 31, 2017

Chris and Drew celebrate the 25th anniversary of a movie that can only be described as What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? meets The Evil Dead. But a quarter century later, do we remember Death Becomes Her for its incisive critique of the cult of beauty? Or do we just remember Meryl Streep's head being on backwards? Avowed heterosexual Nick Loiacano helps answer these questions.
