    Killin' It with "Def by Temptation" | Episode 58

    Succubi, incumbi, deceptive Sami and Broke Ass Amber. In this episode we watched “Def by Temptation,” the 1990 American Horror written, directed, and filmed by James Bond III. We were tempted with creature-feature and all the comedy we miss from the 90s. Check out this Shudder film, listen to the episode and let us know what you think.

Listen Now!

Thanks so much for creating this space. As a MFA and current English & Creative writing PhD student, I love listening to you talk about Black speculative media wether I’ve engaged it before hand or not. Amber has such an engaging voice. Also, I love hearing you talk about Chicago. I’m from the 773 and went to Kenwwod Academy high school in Hyde Park! ❤️
