We welcome film makers Dorian Weinzimmer and Brant McCrea to the show to first help us remember some of the cities across pop culture who have met their demise in this weeks Retro Roundtable. We’ve watched for years as cinema has destroyed some of the largest cities around the world, and even some places that only exist in fiction. Come see if we name the first city to come to your mind!
Then we turn our attention over to Dorian and Brant to talk about their film, Chicago Rot. After years of rotting in Joliet, Les, a wrongfully imprisoned street legend known as "The Ghoul," is released into a mad search through Chicago's back alleys for the man who slaughtered his mother and robbed him of his soul. Aided by enigmatic benefactors, he must delve beneath the city into a modern labyrinth of gutters whose tendrils have grown deep while he was gone.
What unfolds is a desperate tale of brute force tragedy set in the supernatural underworld of Chicago, where heroes are reduced to horror-shows, villains dream of their own demise, and good and evil prove to be antiquated concepts.
This is a movie like non other and provides a truly original experience. Be sure to check out the film at ChicagoRot.com!
