This week, we welcome friend of the show Blake Collier for a more nuanced and scholarly discussion of No Holds Barred. On Blake’s podcast, “The Body The Blood,” they pair a recent horror film with an older one, examine both in a historical, theological, and sociological context, and discuss thematic and structural similarities between the films. In this episode, we attempt to bring the same intellectual rigor to No Holds Barred. Along the way, we discuss Texas geography, horse dicks, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, Greek mythology, and much more. Don’t’ miss it.
