Welcome to Everything Trying to Kill You, the comedy podcast that talks about horror movies! On episode 56 about Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s film The Revenant, your hosts Mary Kay McBrayer, Rachel Estridge, and Mary Beyer answer important questions like these:
Who all in this movie? Is it worth $3.99 to rent Amazon? If the characters in The Revenant were on the old show Survivor, what ONE luxury item would you give to the Rocky Mountain Fur Company? Did you think this movie was horror? (There is a right answer.) So the part where they get scalped was not scary to you? So, you feel like when he drinks water and it comes out of his ripped open throat, that was not horror? How did you feel about ALL THE BODY HORROR? What about when the captain tries to mercy-kill Hugh Glass? (You can just agree with me now, or I can keep going.) How did you feel about the fictional nature of the film adaptation? What about the book? How does the weather interact with the sound? What single animal would defeat you in the wild?
