This week on TMR, Steve & Ryan explore white people’s vision of the ghetto, lament the diminished impact of incest in movies, and wax nostalgic about boyhood hours spent in video stores. Ryan talks about watching this weird-ass movie with this saintly mother, and Steve tells us what he looks for when shopping for a gimp suit.

When young Fool breaks into the home of his family’s greedy and uncaring landlords, he discovers a disturbing scenario where incestuous adult siblings have mutilated a number of boys and kept them imprisoned under stairs in their large, creepy house. As Fool attempts to flee before the psychopaths can catch him, he meets their daughter, Alice, who has been spared any extreme discipline by her deranged parents. Can Fool and Alice escape before it’s too late?
