Mysterious Skin (2004) feat. Clint Worthington

Look out for UFOs and stay away from Froot Loops because we're discussing Gregg Araki's tender-yet-traumatizing adaptation Mysterious Skin (2004).

Interview with the Vampire S01

After plenty of requests for coverage, we're finally caught up on AMC's Interview with the Vampire S01. Spoiler alert: we both strongly recommend this. Qualms about Sam Reid's accent aside, this show has everything: hot sex, unabashed queerness, race and class critiques, and Bailey Bass is as Claudia. Plus: thirsting after Jacob Anderson, vibing with Eric Bogosian's interviewer, and anticipating Ben Daniels in S02 Questions? Comments? Snark?

Wait Until Dark (1967) feat. Ariel Baska

Smash all the lights and strike a match because we're talking about disability horror, Audrey Hepburn and Wait Until Dark (1967). Joining us for the conversation is disability documentary filmmaker Ariel Baska, who has a love/hate relationship with the film and its contribution to "cripping up." Plus: that famous jump scare, accusations of misogyny and ableism, the gross history of "Ugly Laws," and the return of Trace's recurring joke about Charade Reference: ‘Wait Until Dark’: Terence Young’s Terrifyingly Effective Suspense Thriller with Brilliant Audrey Hepburn and Alan Arkin.

Don't read from the Book of the Dead and definitely don't pick up any of those Scarab jewels, because we're discussing Stephen Sommers' masterful action-adventure-horror-romantic-comedy The Mummy (1999), just in time for its 25th anniversary! Tagging in for the conversation is Welsh singer-songwriter Rod Thomas, aka Bright Light Bright Light! Join us as we go all in on this summer blockbuster spectacle. From the bisexual energy of a perfectly cast Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz to a rather wild and incredibly lengthy production history (Clive Barker was involved???), we've got you covered on all things The Mummy!

eXistenZ (1999) feat. Vannah Taylor

Lube up your industry standard bio-port because we're playing David Cronenberg's eXistenZ (1999) with someone friendly: Vannah Taylor! David Cronenberg's mediation on the dangers of gaming and simulation is the middle entry of an unofficial trilogy. It's also a film that gets real confusing, real fast, so good luck figuring out if we're still in the game! Plus: criticisms of a "bland" game world, praise for Jennifer Jason Leigh, Canadian royalty, comparisons to Serenity, disgusting gristle guns, and Pikul getting his back blown out (several times!)

The Skin I Live In (2011)

Try to keep up with all the plot twists and turns because we're discussing Pedro Almodóvar's genre-defying 2011 thriller The Skin I Live In. Heed all of the content warnings on this one, folks! Join us as we discuss our relationship with Almodóvar before parsing through this complex film with a look at the accusations of misogyny, transphobia and transmisogyny that have been lobbied against it. It's an admittedly heavy conversation about a very challenging film (and we'd expect nothing less from Almodóvar).

Friday the 13th (2009) feat. Amir Moini

Keep those stupendous fake tits out of the field of pot because we're talking Platinum Dunes' 2009 remake, Friday the 13th. Joining us to tackle perfect nipple placement, underwhelming kills, and all things Willa Ford is filmmaker Amir Moini. Up for discussion: is the remake really that bad? Are the tunnels a dealbreaker? Is *anyone* surprised that Whitney survives and Jenna dies? Plus: praise for Aaron Yoo, the ~24 minute opener, blood and nudity in the "Final Cut," and a third swinging light death sequence!

The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945) feat. Amanda Jane Stern

We apologize for the intelligence of our remarks, but we're delving into every gay man's worst nightmare (aging) in Albert Lewin's The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945). Tagging in for the conversation is writer and filmmaker Amanda Jane Stern, who turns out to be an enormous fan of the source material! Join us as we go all in on this adaptation of Oscar Wilde's only novel, but not before discussing the tragedy that is Wilde's life. We then discuss Hollywood's "straightening" of this very queer story, and bask in the glory of what is Angela Lansbury's third film role. Plus, one very cruel Slut Test™, four stellar Technicolor shots (seriously), a presumably enormous confetti budget, Egyptian cat magic, one extremely unnecessary narrator and an even more unnecessary Gladys.

Re-Animator (1985)

C/W: sexual assault and the cat dies (again and again) We're praising Jeffrey Combs' perfect performance, the tricky tonal balance (including the Dr. Hill/Megan assault), and the gory practical FX in this mad doctor film. Plus: a queer reading of Herbert and Dan, multiple editions, naked fight scenes, and why the film deserves to be seen with a crowd.

The Roommate (2011) feat. Ali Chappell

Put on your best fedora and pull that cat out of the dryer because we're discussing Christian E. Christiansen's teeny-bopper ripoff of Single White Female, The Roommate (2011)! Tagging in for the conversation is one of the film's superfans: Ali Chappell. Join us as we try (TRY) to figure out who thought this movie was a good idea, because nearly nothing in this shameless ripoff works. From it's incredibly stupid lead character to its complete lack of tension, it's a real misfire. God bless Leighton Meester, though, who at least tries to do something with a nothing role. Ultimately, The Roommate feels more like a business decision than an artistic one, which is a bummer given the cast that its working with. But hey, we've still got a semi-decent shower scene and a semi-thrilling climactic battle so....there's that? Questions? Comments? Snark?

Halloween 2 (2009) Director's Cut

Look out for Ghost Mama and avoid death-magnet Laurie Strode because we are talking about Rob Zombie's much maligned Halloween 2 (2009). C/W: the dog dies. The film has problems, but we're fond of its all-star cast (Brea Grant! Margot Kidder! Nurse Octavia Daniels!), as well as the film's surprisingly nuanced consideration of Final Girl PTSD.

Micro Queers: Herd (2023)

Don't give that kid your whistle because we're discussing Steven Pierce's queer zombie(ish) action horror film Herd (2023), which is currently available on VOD. Join us as we discuss the ways in which the film subverts standard zombie tropes in favor of a more human-focused story, led by two solid performances from Ellen Adair and Mitzi Akaha. There's a few pacing issues, but overall this is a solid entry into queer horror canon. Questions? Comments? Snark?

Apt Pupil (1998) feat. Jenn Adams

Keep the cat away from that Nazi and get ready to separate the art from the artist because we're discussing Bryan Singer's 1998 Stephen King adaptation Apt Pupil! Joining us for the discussion is The Losers' Club podcast co-host Jenn Adams! Join us as we discuss the long road to getting this adaptation made before delving into the Bryan Singer of it all in an admittedly difficult and heavy conversation. Plus: the tragedy of Brad Renfro, David Schwimmer and his mustache wig, Ann Dowd(?!?!) and the always excellent Ian McKellen marching in an SS uniform.

With a new season of Don Mancini's Chucky, we're back on the recap beat. S03 kicks off with a mostly White House-set episode that introduces President Devon Sawa (and Lara Jean Chorostecki as the First Lady!) with only brief moments with our trio of kids (who are all social media stars now?) It's tough to guess where we're going, but we're anticipating The Omen III, pay-off on the dead sibling storyline, and a trip to the Capitol for Devon, Lexy, and a suddenly beefy Jake.   Questions?

Join us as we praise, well, pretty much everything about Tim Burton's ode to Hammer Horror (and Disney's animated version of the story). But hey, the movie kills a kid!

This is one of Joe's favorite queer horror texts because it covers so many topics: cruising, sex and death, voyeurism, body image, gay microcosms, STIs, toxic relationship, homophobia, and gay friendships. And that's before we tackle the unsimulated sex, discuss using condoms for blowjobs, debate the ambiguous ending(s), and cringe over pervy Eric.

Tagging in for the conversation is the founder of Salem Horror Fest: Kay Lynch! Join us as we kick things off with a brief discussion on the differences between noir and neo-noir before going all in on the casting drama that nearly cost us Jennifer Tilly! Then it's all (and we mean all) fair game as we analyze this masterpiece of queer cinema. Plus: plenty of frank sexual conversations, femme tops, threatened masculinity, overhead shots galore, and all the praise for Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon's lead performances.

Joining us for the conversation is Austin-based queer film historian Elizabeth Purchell! Join us as we trace the film's journey from the mind of De Palma to a protested and picketed controversy among feminists and members of the queer community. It's a film that's all style and some substance, but we'd be remiss if we didn't tackle the film's more divisive aspects. Plus: "beaver shots," plenty of gay porn discussions, racist stereotypes, and the film's connections to Cruising.

Join us as we discuss the film's journey from a Black List pick to a botched marketing campaign to an even more botched release. This is a shame, because Stoker is a film that oozes so much style that it elevates its baby Dexter plot, even if it could have used about 100% more Nicole Kidman. Plus: one incredible hair-to-grass transition, camera weaves for days, the most demented sand angel you'll ever see and incest: the last universal taboo. Questions? Comments? Snark?

Psycho (1960)

After tackling its two sequels, we're finally crossing off a classic with Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960). Turns out we have a ton to say in this supersized episode, which makes sense considering the film is technically masterful, features iconic sequences and boasts two stellar lead performances. Plus: a 'pregnant' production history, Baters and momism, Gus Van Sant's 1998 shot for shot remake, and a variety of (queer) readings of Norman Bates.

Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2021) feat. Reyna Cervantes

Be on the lookout for clues because we're headed back to Escape Room with Adam Robitel's sequel, Tournament of Champions (2021). With the help of returning guest Reyna Cervantes, we're discussing both the Theatrical, as well as the Extended Cut of the film (jump ahead to the ~1hr 10min mark to hear about the new beginning and end!) Expect Minos-levels of conspiracy as we try to figure out the timeline and rationale for the two cuts. Plus: our fave new characters and traps, retconning the original film's end, needing more Isabelle Fuhrman and James frain, and what we want in a possible third entry (and why it definitely *won't* be rated R) Questions?

Plus: a dub job for the ages, baby stunts, cheating lesbian mamas, true San Francisco realness and some of the best embalming techniques you're likely to find in a horror film.

Micro Queers: Bad Girl Boogey (2022)

We would have liked more time with these characters (and maybe a longer runtime overall), as well as a stronger killer reveal, but the film's musicality, its DIY aesthetic, and the fact that Mackay has made an unapologetically queer film is worth celebrating.

Cover your webcams and watch out for tasers because we're talking Jon Abrahams' Exploited (2022). C/W: sexual assault.This indie film features male nudity in two minutes, boys in singlets and Leah FUCKING Pipes running around in lingerie. It's also got about 12 storylines, uneven acting and far too many twists in the surprisingly dark last act.Basically: she's a messy bitch that tries to tackle too much, but Exploited is so explicitly queer, pro-sex and unabashedly wild that we had to cover it.

Joining us for the conversation is the co-host of the Midnight Mass Podcast: Michael Varrati!We go all in on this complex murder mystery/Hollywood satire filled with a cast of pretty reprehensible characters (in the words of our guest: it's a problematic scenario populated by problematic people) while admiring the sheer audacity of Perkins and Sondheim's clever script.Plus: hot Ian McShane, Angela Lansbury tea, Raquel Felch, a "little child molester" who technically wins the movie, and a surprising fact about Joel Schumacher!Questions?

Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings (2011)

Zip up your ski jackets and look for the sanitarium on the ridge because we're talking about the origin story of the Hillicker brothers with Declan O'Brien's 2011 prequel, Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings.Don't worry if you haven't seen the other films; the most confusing part of this movie is keeping its cast of generic (white) actors apart (Vincent or Kyle? Jenna or Kenia?) Thankfully we've got great practical gore to make up for terrible acting and characterizations.Plus: the shocking truth about the CGI, explicit lesbian sex scenes, Fahrenheit to Celsius conversions, and why we mean it as a compliment when we say this film is stupid fun.Questions?

Joining us for the discussion is Nick of the nicksaysboo YouTube reaction channel!After we briefly discuss the first film's production woes, we go into the many reasons how the sequel improves upon nearly every aspect of the already wonderful original film. This is, of course, mainly due to Christina Ricci's expanded role and the introduction of a delightfully unhinged performance from Joan Cusack.Plus: political commentary, the joys of being privileged, reading the Addams's as a queer family unit, and what might be the best Thanksgiving play ever put on stage.

Sorry, Jack...Chucky's back! With the second season of Chucky premiering on SyFy next week, we thought we'd take a look back at the franchise that spawned the successful television series. And who better to walk us through memory lane than the creator of the franchise himself: Don Mancini!Join us as we do a deep dive into the franchise with Mancini (specifically the entries from Bride of Chucky and onward), covering all manner of topics like, oh, we don't know, turning one of the biggest horror franchises into a super queer empowerment story?

The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program: Night at Howling House

Here's a taster of the latest series from The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program entitled "Night at Howling House." The pod hails from our guest Cat Blackard (recently heard on 'The Lighthouse'). If you like what you hear, check out https://cthulhumystery.com/ or listen anywhere you get podcasts.Here's the description: The lazy days of summer are at an end and school is about to begin... but for five Arkham youths, reading, writing, and 'rithmetic is the least of their worries. They're spending the night in a notorious abandoned house and local legends say no one has ever lived to tell the tale.Of course, no sane schoolkid would dare to trespass in Howling House, but twelve-year-old Tenderfoot, Tommy "Woods" Northwood, his precocious kid sister Chelsea, and a forlorn little boy known only as "Dirt" don't have a choice. Roger Simmons, the neighborhood bully, and his protégé, Joey Davenport, have the leverage and pugilistic prowess to make a very convincing argument.Will they survive to see the sunrise, or is there something sinister waiting for them in that decrepit domicile?

Hellraiser (1987) feat. Bryan Christopher

Come to daddy and solve that puzzle box because we're revelling in the queer, cosmic horror of Clive Barker's Hellraiser (1987)! Tagging in for the discussion is returning guest (and Hellraiser franchise super fan) Bryan Christopher, who we can only assume is a masochist at heart.Join us as we go all in on the queer subtext that Barker injects into his directorial debut before heaping all the praise on Claire Higgins' performance as the complex Julia Cotton. There will be discussions of BDSM and consent, the torture porn label that is unfairly applied to the film, and all things Cenobites.Plus: Frank's precious goo, shoulder pads for days, one rude-ass nurse, an angry pet store lady, and the ultimate question: why aren't these characters diarrhea-ing all over themselves at the sight of some of this shit? And to think that Ebert said this film was a "bankruptcy of imagination"!

After years (literally years) of waiting, we are discussing Josh Boone's adaptation of The New Mutants and it's.....fine?After spending a good amount of this episodes runtime going through the film's laborious production history and discussing the racist accusations lobbied against the film, we educate ourselves on the source material before doing a deep dive into the film itself.We've got a front-and-center queer romance, lots of garbage CGI, teenage trauma porn, mostly solid accent work and a blessed 86-minute runtime. Does it all work? Absolutely not. But it's not as bad as it could have been, so we guess that's something?Questions? Comments? Snark?

Dahmer (2002)

In this special bonus minisode celebrating the film's 20th anniversary, we discuss 2002's Dahmer, starring a pre-fame Jeremy Renner. The film - and Renner - is quite good and would make a good double bill with My Friend Dahmer (another film we'd recommend).Questions? Comments? Snark?

Joining us for the conversation is noted Scooby-head Cory McCullough!Join us as we trace the film's journey from a PG-13 (or R-rated???) Brady Bunch Movie-style parody of the classic Scooby-Doo cartoons to a compromised but joyous, family-friendly(???) celebration of all things Mystery, Inc. We wouldn't expect anything else from screenwriter (and Troma alum) James Gunn, would we?Plus, on top of a feminist Daphne, a stoner Shaggy and a queer Velma & Fred, we've got Pamela Anderson(???), "horrific" CGI, body (and gender)-swapping shenanigans, plenty o' farts and the ultimate debate on Scrappy Cornelius Doo.

Spoiler-Free Review: Carter Smith's 'Swallowed' [Overlook 2022]

We're dropping a mini-review of Carter Smith's new queer horror film Swallowed, which just had its world-premiere at the Overlook Film Festival! Since the film is still seeking distribution and thus can't be seen by most audiences, this a completely spoiler-free review. We will release a longer (spoiler-filled) episode on the film when it gets released. Starring Jena Malone (The Ruins, The Neon Demon) and Mark Patton (A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge), Swallowed is a pulse-pounding tale of two best friends on what might be their final night together. A drug deal gone wrong finds them at the center of a chilling queer body horror full of shocking violations.Questions? Comments? Snark?

Perdita Durango (1997) feat. Kay Lynch

Make sure those human fetuses are refrigerated properly because we're hitting the road with Rosie (fucking) Perez and Javier Bardem in Álex de la Iglesia's controversial film Perdita Durango (1997), which only just saw the release of its uncut version last year! Joining us for the trip is Salem Horror Fest's Festival Director Kay Lynch!Join us as we look at the film's origins as a sequel to Wild at Heart (yes, really) before discussing the films taboo and challenging subject matter. Rosie Perez's career-best performance forces us to rationalize loving a character who commits so many heinous acts.Oh, and content warnings aplenty for this one because we've got filicide, f-slurs, voodoo rituals, copious amounts of cocaine, blood sacrifices, corpse mutilations, grave desecrations and, in the words of the director himself, consensual rape??? And that's all just in the film's first hour!Reference: Peter Buse, Núria Triana-Toribio and Andrew Willis. The Cinema of Álex de la IglesiaQuestions? Comments? Snark?

C/W: misogyny, transphobia.Along for the ride is Blerdy Massacre co-host Xero Gravity, who joins us in getting increasingly aggravated with the Martyrs director the more we learn what he thinks he's doing with this film, which includes a lot of teen female abuse, a caricature trans woman villain and unabashed love for HP Lovecraft?!We're more forgiving of the twist, as well as the performances of Emilia Jones and Taylor Hickson (whose disfigurement on the film's set is another controversy Trace unpacks).Plus: TCM-meets-giallo production design, a sly police subversion, a groan-worthy typewriter and dolls everywhere.Reference: Robin Ono. “Horror and Transcendence: An Interview with Pascal Laugier” Rue MorgueQuestions?

Wake in Fright (1971) feat. A Nightmare on Fierce Street

Brush up on your two-up and watch out for them kangaroos (oh, God, the kangaroos!) because we're heading Down Under to discuss Ted Kotcheff's famed "lost film" Wake in Fright (1971)! Joining us are A Nightmare on Fierce Street co-hosts Sharai Bohannon and Trent Reese!First thing's first: this film has a 10-minute-long sequence featuring Cannibal Holocaust levels of real-life animal violence (it's the kangaroos), so major content warning for that. Consider yourself warned.Anyway, after a brief musical theatre tangent, we discuss the film's journey from novel to film to lost film to restored masterpiece before going all-in on its portrayal of masculinity. It all leads up to a discussion of a gay sex scene that, quite frankly, we were shocked to see!Plus, shirtless Donald Pleasence (nips o' plenty), one spicy hotel receptionist, a very serious conversation about Bloody Marys and (the ultimate question) is Janette a slut?

That's the argument Trace makes, though Joe is less certain about its humor.What we both agree on is that the Tom McLoughlin film has a (mostly) great final girl in Megan, a hot Tommy Jarvis, and Jason's got a tight heinie.Plus: the Camp Blood card game (here are the rules), the film's best death and scariest sequences, and justice for Sissy and Paula, who deserved more screen time than those corporate paint ballers!Questions?

mother! (2017) feat. Ghouls Next Door

Grab your crystal heart and prepare for combustion. For 2017's "underseen or underrated" entry, we've recruited Gabe & Kat of Ghouls Next Door to discuss Darren Aronofsky's big budget flop: mother!The Jennifer Lawrence movie is more endurance experience than film and features a messy mix of religious, environmental and creative allegories that definitely contributed to its F Cinemascore. Needless to say, there's lot of unpack, including plenty of Biblical connections (why is Michelle Pfeiffer's Eve such a c*nt?!), conservation pleas (get off the damn sink!) and potential autobiographical ties (Aronofsky's treatment of J. Law, his former girlfriend and muse). It's a lot...just like this movie!Questions? Comments? Snark?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: 'Once More, With Feeling' (2001) feat. Josh Tonks

Give us something to sing about! In celebration of the 20th anniversary of one of Buffy the Vampire Slayer's greatest episodes, we're revisiting the 2001 musical episode 'Once More, With Feeling' (S06E07) along with guest and musical theatre expert Joshua Tonks.Buffy is an important text for women and queer viewers who see themselves represented in the Scooby gang’s Chosen family and Buffy’s strength. And while Joss Whedon is a POS (yes, we know!), we’re highlighting the work of everyone who stepped up IN SEASON SIX to make TV’s best musical episode.Following a Buffy primer for the uninitiated, we go into a detailed production history about how this Very Special Episode got made. Then it’s a song by song break-down, complete with Karaoke renditions. Plus: how the writing fails Dawn, praise for Tony winner Hinton Battle, a fun new way to troll Trace, Josh’s walks us through musical subgenres and the importance of the show’s lesbian relationship (and unsubtle ode to cunninlingus).Questions?

Joy Ride (2001)

We're cruising into October with our trusty CB radio in hand for a rewatch of John Dahl's Joy Ride (2001). The film features a pretty iconic scene of stars Paul Walker and Steve Zahn walking naked into a diner, but that’s not the only queer aspect of this highway horror film.Using Eric Langberg’s Gayly Dreadful piece, we consider how the film is in conversation with the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard and how that opens up readings of hate crimes, gay panic and repressed sexuality in the film’s villain Rusty Nail (Ted Levine).Plus: Trace’s hatred of pranks, fears of doxxing, the film's MANY endings, misusing Leelee Sobieski, and coming to grips with the fact that Fuller is actually an asshole.References:Eric Langberg.

Selznick, queer director James Whale and everyone's favorite Production Code Administration head: Joseph Breen!Then we'll dive into all things queer in this underseen classic, including a third act whose sole purpose is to make the straights happy. But hey, it's not like director Lambert Hillyer didn't fit as much queerness in the film as possible (it's not even subtext, y'all).Plus: an X-rated bow tie metaphor, personal space, Hedda Hopper(?!) and more analysis from everyone's favorite queer horror theorist: Harry M.

Mulholland Drive (2001)

In advance of its 20th anniversary, we're dipping into the beautiful, surreal world of David Lynch's Mulholland Drive (2001).In keeping with the film, the episode adopts a non-linear format as we track the Betty/Rita storyline, then double back to discuss Adam, before finally digging into the extra footage Lynch shot when the project switched from TV pilot to film. Expect plenty of discussion about how great both female leads are, which Hollywood director Adam reminds Trace of, Joe’s ongoing obsession with Showgirls, and talk of how goddamn gorgeous this film is.Plus: Speculation on a shared cinematic universe with Southland Tales and Alias S3, Trace's dislike of Noir, and the hilarious reason why Monty Montgomery’s line delivery as the Cowboy is so unnerving. References: Justin Holliday.
