Afros, magic “flutes,” and tokenism, oh my! Happy Halloween, everyone! Shaun, Jen, and Teri consulted with Tonia Thompson to select movies appropriate for a Halloween special during Black Speculative Fiction Month and she has suffered for it. We turn our drunken eyes to Leprechaun in the Hood, a movie that can be best described as everything BAD about representation with a side of WHY. We discuss how the film approaches representation (of so many different peoples), its absurd take on rap and gang culture, and even Leprechauns. And, yeah, we give some love to Warwick Davis, too. In the end, one question remains: is this the worst Torture Cinema movie of all time? Listen to find out!
We hope you enjoy the episode!
