Cinema Royale: Talking ‘Immaculate’, Sydney Sweeney’s Edgy New Religious Horror

On the latest episode of Cinema Royale, I’m joined by fellow film critic Karen Peterson to talk about Sydney Sweeney’s religious horror, Immaculate! Is it good enough to help us forget that Madame Web is a thing that happened barely a month ago? We talk about the film’s very clear agenda, how far it goes in emulating the genre’s tropes, and a VERY controversial final scene that could have people buzzing.

All of this and more on a new episode of Cinema Royale!
