Long Live the New Flesh
Long Live the New Flesh is about navigating the Fangoria Faithful through the dark places on the internet where creative people in your neighbourhoods are sowing the seeds of the indie film revolution and making brilliant, provocative and bone-chilling media.

film manages to not just entertain but also drive a message about the politics
of the rape-revenge genre.
