If ‘Videodrome’ and ‘Twin Peaks’ had a neo-noir baby, drenched in Argento lighting, mixed with witchcraft – Clare Wright describing Brand New Cherry Flavor 🍒
Series creators Nick Antosca and Lenore Zion bring Todd Grimson’s vicious novel to life, in the Netflix series that had many struggling to finish if they had a weak stomach.
The twists and turns laid out by co-creators Antosca and Zion, are enriched by powerful shots and some of the best-supporting characters in modern television.
Even for the most daring horror fans, this limited series was a tall order to finish and for those who are brave enough, it delivers even more upon a second viewing.
Brand New Cherry Flavor
This series packs a serious punch to the gut as it follows Lisa Nova (Rosa Salazar) through the seediness of the ’90s LA film industry and mixes in dark magic, nightmarish creatures, and violent ends to the most unexpected characters.
My guest Clare Wright (horror content creator/film reviewer) comes on the pod to discuss the greatness of the neo-noir body horror series, which gross-out moments we both loved, the heartbreaking deaths of that shocked us both through out the eight episode run.
Outside of the series, Clare and I take a detailed look at her Letterboxd horror picks, dissect what genre gatekeepers get wrong about fandom, and both give a shout-out to our mutual friend/fellow horror content creator Amber T (@hornbloodfire).
