53: Exquisite Mayhem

In which Carla further explores the Three Mothers horror movie series--Suspiria, Inferno, and Mother of Tears--as started in the episode Elegant Nastiness, by examining Luca Guadagnino's 2018 remake of Suspiria, taking a fresh look at Suspiria's influence, the fairy tale "Little Snow White", and taking a deep dive into the themes of identity, sleep and dreams, and, of course, motherhood.
