Tense AF, as Laurel is taken into custody by the FBI (Kurt Fuller in supercreepy mode) and prepared for enhanced interrogation -- specifically, "controlled immersion", a new, less-drowny version of waterboarding.

MeFi Horror Club #16: Dead Alive (aka Brain Dead)

It pains me greatly to call something from 1992 a "retro" movie, but I couldn't call it "recent" with a straight face, so working within our parameters, it's "retro." [more inside]
