Episode 123 Womb
Guilt can make you do some crazy things. And in the case of Rebecca, the protagonist from Womb (2010), it can motivate you to grow a clone of your dead lover inside your body and then raise that clone as if it were your child. Things grow complicated from there. Set on a frigid northern European coast that’s primarily populated by pasty people in chunky knits, this film forces the viewer to grapple with all the icky, squicky details of cloning and what its invention could mean for the soul of humanity. Jessica Baxter joins us for an episode full of mud-smeared windows, Game of Thrones characters, and baby ass specialists this week on Ex Rated Movies!
