Modern Horror Movie Talk episode covers Brandon Cronenberg’s Infinity Pool

The new episode of the Modern Horror Movie Talk video series dives into Brandon Cronenberg’s Infinity Pool, starring Mia Goth

A new video series called Modern Horror Movie Talk recently made its premiere on the Arrow in the Head Show YouTube channel, and with each episode of this show we’ll be joining host Tyler Nichols as he covers all new horror releases, the latest horror movie news, and new horror trailers. Films discussed in previous episodes of Modern Horror Movie Talk include Cocaine Bear, Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving, The Pope’s Exorcist, the newly released entry in the Children of the Corn franchise, The Blackening, Scream VI, and 65. Now, for the fifth episode, Tyler is joined by special guest Andrew Hatfield to discuss director Brandon Cronenberg’s film Infinity Pool (read our review HERE). To find out what Tyler and Andrew thought of Infinity Pool, check out the video embedded above.

Cronenberg wrote the screenplay for Infinity Pool, as he did for his two previous feature films, Possessor and Antiviral. This time, he tells the following story: James and Em are enjoying an all-inclusive beach vacation when a fatal accident exposes the resort’s perverse subculture of hedonistic tourism, reckless violence, and surreal horrors.

The film stars Alexander Skarsgard (The Northman), Cleopatra Coleman (In the Shadow of the Moon), and Mia Goth (Pearl).

Cronenberg had some trouble securing an R rating for Infinity Pool. The film initially received an NC-17 from the ratings board at the Motion Picture Association for “some graphic violence and sexual content”.He had to recut the film and resubmit it to get the R rating for “graphic violence, disturbing material, strong sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use and some language.” But he said the R-rated cut of Infinity Pool is not “dramatically different” than the NC-17 cut.
