Queer Horror creeps closer to immortality with DEATH BECOMES HER! Hosted

BECOMES HER (1992):
Lifelong Hollywood rivals Madeline Ashton (Meryl
Streep) and Helen Sharp (Goldie Hawn) become immortal frenemies after
they acquire an elixir of youth kept by the mysterious Lisle von Rhoman
(Isabella Rossellini). Unfortunately everlasting youth – and Madeline
and Helen’s feud – survives well after their pulses cease. Also
featuring Demi Moore’s ex-husband Bruce Willis, DEATH BECOMES HER is
jam-packed with breakthrough effects, iconic one-liners, and legendary
performances that cement its status as a camp classic for an eternity to
come. Directed by Robert Zemeckis.
