Brandon Cronenberg is back at Sundance with Infinity Pool, which just hit theaters and is already making a bloody splash. We discuss our varying opinions on his sci-fi horror follow-up to Possessor, which stars Alexander Skarsgård, Mia Goth, and Cleopatra Coleman. We kick off the show this week with some off-topics, including listener feedback for Women Talking, a listener request to quickly chat about Bones and All, and our coverage of the 2023 Sundance Film Festival.

Synopsis for Infinity Pool:
FIND OUT WHAT KIND OF CREATURE YOU REALLY ARE. While staying at an isolated island resort, James and Em are enjoying a perfect vacation of pristine beaches, exceptional staff, and soaking up the sun. But guided by the seductive and mysterious Gabi, they venture outside the resort grounds and find themselves in a culture filled with violence, hedonism, and untold horror. [Source: Letterboxd]
