Episode 11: Nightmare Alley

Nightmare AlleyWe figured you might like something special for the Halloween season, so this week, we give you the dark carnival noir Nightmare Alley!

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because we spoil the hell out of this film, and I assure you, you don’t want that. While this movie isn’t on most of the usual streaming channels, you can easily find a DVD for under $10, and a search on Google will bring you a dozen probably-illicit copies. (There is currently a copy on YouTube, uploaded in 12 parts.)

Join us on November 7th for our episode on Leave Her to Heaven!
