3. Curtains (1983).

Only the joyless Canadian people would take the escapist, silly slasher genre and use it as a vehicle for exploring the unfair expectations placed on aging women. Sarah and Adam pay attention to the men and women behind Curtains and ask if the movie’s full of yonic imagery or yawn-ick imagery? The CanCon lesson continues as your two hosts recite monologues on tampering producers, multiple directors, alternate endings, and what makes a horror movie doll scary.
