ACOFAE Podcast Presents: Underworld: “Why are they so obsessed with each other?”

Where were you in 2003? Were you thinking about Michael Sheen? Were vampires on your radar? What about werewolves? Surprising everyone probably, maybe ACOFAE Laura did NOT see this in theaters, and surprising no one probably, maybe ACOFAE Jessica saw this for the first time on Laura's couch. For a movie that flew a bit under the radar in the early aughts, Underworld is jammed packed with everything that ACOFAE loves and just a bit that maybe ACOFAE doesn't. Filmed with what seems like a filter over the lens, this Romeo and Juliet (what!?) story about bloodlines spawned a franchise and a conversation about female action stars that sent Laura Marie and Jessica Marie spiraling.

Does this movie follow "The Pattern"?
