Thanks for joining us for another episode of The Horror Pod Class! Today we are going to be talking about one of our favorite movies, David Cronenberg's eXistenZ.  Specifically, we are going to be exploring how the film uses body horror to accentuate the themes of manufactured reality and transformation.  Below you will find some helpful links to resources we talk about during the podcast.
