JOIN SWITCHBLADE SQUAD AS THEY PRESENT A MOTHER’S DAY MARATHON WITH EL REY NETWORK BEGINNING MAY 7 AT 10AM ET/PT
FEATURING ENEMY MINE, TANK GIRL AND KILL BILL: VOL 1 AND VOL 2
This badass movie marathon is hosted by El Rey’s Switchblade Squad, a trio of genre experts who are die-hard fans of badass cinema featuring film critic Amy Nicholson (MTV), journalist Jen Yamato (The Daily Beast), and director/producer Roxanne Benjamin (V/H/S, V/H/S 2, Southbound).
Switchblade Squad on El Rey Network discusses these new modern classics as they watch three iconic films with viewers at home. “Here’s to the mothers and the bad mother*ckers of genre cinema,” toast the Switchblade Squad, who invite you to join their all-day Mother’s Day tour through the ‘80s, ‘90s, and ‘00s.
To celebrate Mother’s Day, these three films present unique takes on femininity and strength, explored through the lens of motherhood, womanhood, and female empowerment, a surplus of ass-kicking, and one legendary sci-fi birth.
