There’s a madman loose in New York City. Late at night, he stalks the streets looking for straight white men to punish. When he finds them, he kills them in unspeakable ways.
In New York City, however, nothing is unspeakable. Plenty of people in the bustling metropolis have something to say about it, especially the podcasters, who use their platforms to opine about the serial killer and his victims. Some think the victims are getting what they deserve. Aren’t straight white men responsible for a majority of the world’s problems? They run fortune 500 companies that pollute the environment. They’ve run countries that have started devastating wars. They’ve built a system of capitalism that is racist and oppressive…
“Poundcake is inspired by slashers of the 80s and icons like Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, and Leatherface, Tukel told Bloody Disgusting “In a slasher movie, the villain murders someone every eight or nine minutes and there’s a climax where the killer is revealed and/or dispatched.” Other inspirations include Spike Lee’s 1998 feature film Summer of Sam because “David Berkowitz’s murders take place in the background as multiple narratives unfold during the movie,” and Oliver Stone’s Talk Radio.
Furthermore, Tukel wants to make sure it’s 100% clear that Poundcake is a satire. “It’s pretty obvious what it’s satirising.”
