After years of requests we're finally heading to Midian to hang with Boone and Button-Face in Clive Barker's Nightbreed (1990)! Joining us for the conversation is super-fan Leigh Monson (see previous episode on Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II).

In this episode, which premiered at last year's Frightgown Film Festival, we discuss the film's arduous production and incredibly troubled post-production before going all-in on...

To celebrate the arrival of Addison Heimann's extremely queer horror film Hypochondriac (2022), we're giving you a bonus SPOILER-FILLED minisode. We're talking mental health, queer relationships, explicit sex (rimming!) and why we need more films like this.

Brush up on your stalking laws because we're heading to the City of Angels to discuss our very first TV movie in John Carpenter's Someone's Watching Me! (1978), which aired on NBC just one month after the release of Halloween!

Join us as we do a crash course on the status of television movies in the '70s before analyzing Carpenter's subversion of the Final Girl trope and then rightfully praising the groundbreakin...

This month on Micro Queers, we're headed to London 1 hour before The Pulse with Rob Savage's Dawn of the Deaf (2016). We discuss the exquisite technical elements (be sure to watch it with head phones!), the stunning 360 spinning subway scene, and get excited about feature version with an all deaf cast (it'll never happen though!)

For the last entry in our Camp series, we're finally tackling Robert Hiltzik's Sleepaway Camp (1983). Along for the short shorts and Judy of it all is returning guest - and big fan of the film - Ten Backe.

The big question is whether this film is homophobic and transphobic. Hiltzik doesn't have a lot of thoughts on the matter, but we, and many trans film critics, do. Is Sleepaway Camp worthy of praise and (re)appropriati...

Week 4 of the Summer of Camp finds us fucking life in the gallbladder with Flesh For Frankenstein (1974). Along for the ride is returning guest Reyna Cervantes, who loves Paul Morrissey's X-Rated satire, which could never be made today!

After Trace provides a quick crash course on Andy Warhol and The Factory, we dive into the 3D, the Mafia (!) and the incest/necrophilia of it all (C/W by the way).

Plus: hot Udo Kier, the destruc...

The Summer of Camp rolls on as Professor Andy Scahill returns to discuss our very first John Waters film, Female Trouble (1974). This is a great introduction to Waters, the Dreamlanders and Divine in a film that defines bad taste and trash.

Come for the discussion on why Christmas is hard on queers, our love of Mink Stole and how the film evokes Waters' counter culture approach to indie filmmaking. Are you offended? Good!

Grab your vecuronium and prepare to get bottomless because week two of the Summer of Camp is tackling Doug Aarniokoski's Nurse 3D (2013). This is just...what is this? It's Paz de la Huerta acting in a completely different film than the stacked cast around her. It's lawsuits and delays. It's fetish costuming, shitty 3D post-conversion and the wildest voice-over you've ever heard.

Trace offers a recap lesson while...

Surprise! We're opening the Patreon vault to deliver an episode on a film with one of the most infamously troubled production histories of all time. That's right! 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 raci...

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).
