This week on the pod, we're celebrating the 25th anniversary of (decidedly NOT a horror film) Showgirls. Along for the road trip to Vegas is Attack of the Queerwolf co-host Nay Bever, who delivers both laughs and insightful commentary.

This probably isn't the episode you're expecting: sure we poke fun at the film's ridiculous elements, but we spend most of our time discussing the film's many terrible men, analyze...

On this week's episode, we're evoking the spirit of American Beauty with lesbian director Jamie Babbit's incest drama/thriller The Quiet. Thankfully we've got Patrick Hamilton and Gena Radcliffe of the Kill by Kill podcast to help us unpack all of the lurid melodrama of this Elisha Cuthbert/Camilla Belle stinker.

Where did this snooze worthy film go wrong: the languid pacing? The atrocious dialogue? Aiming for presti...

On this week's episode, Joe, Trace and special returning guest Michael Varrati board a plane to Rome to discuss the pod's very first Dario Argento film, 1982 (or is it 1984?)'s Tenebrae.

This is another video nasty (see our episode on Island of Death), so it's got a convoluted production history that includes censorship and rumored on-set tension between Argento and frequent collaborator Daria Nicolodi. Tenebrae is a...

After discussing the implications of the film changing the protagonists of the original script (a heterosexual couple) to a lesbian couple, we'll then delve into the film's only real acknowledgement of the struggles of being gay ...

Vacation Month continues with a trip to beautiful - and exceedingly queer - Mykonos and Nico Mastorakis' notorious exploitation/video nasty film, Island of Death. This is the Stefon of horror films because it has EVERYTHING: bestiality, incest, targeted homophobic violence, misogyny, rape and so much more (please pay attention to the content warning!)

After the film's lengthy production history and categorization in the UK&#...

We're trying something new and exciting! This weekly "micro" spin-off of Horror Queers will examine queer horror shorts in an effort to amplify the work of talented filmmakers who may not yet have made a feature film. The sole criteria: the shorts will always be queer or made by queer directors and they will always be freely available for public consumption.

To kick things off, we're starting with Brazilian genre dir...

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
