The Illustrated Man / Dirty Hands / Demonoid
08 / 30 / 2022
Join Roger Avary and Quentin Tarantino as they fall deep into the stories of The Illustrated Man! Two tramps meet on the side of the road; one of their bodies is almost completely covered in tattoos—er, skin illustrations. Quentin & Roger discuss the differences between the book and the movie, an unexpected canine star, and how a Rod Steiger performance can elevate a film.
Next up, Claude Chabrol’s Dirty Hands, featuring another amazing Rod Steiger performance, Roger & Quentin refuse to ruin the ending of this one, and with its Hitchcockian connections and unexpected performances, you’ll be happy you didn’t get spoiled. Finishing this episode is Alfredo Zacarias’s Demonoid: Messenger Of Death, in which a woman and her husband unearth an ancient curse, a demon that takes control of your left hand. Featuring lots of gags and amazing effects, this film will keep you entertained from its explosive start to its fulfilling end.
