We're in the middle of a national eviction crisis during a global pandemic and filthy rich landlords are getting wealthier exploiting working-class folks like you. So what can cinema teach us about the power of tenant solidarity? Quite a bit, actually. There's a lot you can learn from 90s Wes Craven and a 70s exploitation kung fu flick rescued from obscurity by Vinegar Syndrome. Turns out all you need to do is learn how to kick your landlord in the dick, cover them in flesh-eating rats and maybe release some of the jaundiced cannibals trapped in your walls.
THIS WEEK: Death Promise (1977) and The People Under the Stairs (1991)
