Did you know that film critic icon Robert Ebert once wrote a film? And that it’s one of the most highly regarded, wild and crazy, Russ Meyer cult films? Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is his satirical masterpiece he provided to the world of film. And it is quite a crazy midnight movie kind of treat.
I was excited for my guest, Reyna Cervantes, to come on the show. But, I was even more stoked when she picked this film. Reyna is a one of the top horror film critics you’ll find around the bend, contributing to Bloody Disgustings, Fangoria, Screen Queens and so much more. She also hosts a podcast, Horror in Session where expertise and novice blend.
This an absolutely fun discussion and I wound up leaving a lot of meandering banter in the episode as it was very Blu-ray and home video related. Since you all know that’s a passion of mine and (from what I’ve gathered) enjoy a lot of that talk, I decided to keep much of it in. Enjoy and definitely check out this movie if you’re into fun, crazy movies.
