This time it's the iconic The Bride of Frankenstein (1935), which features no shortage of queer talent (Whale, Ernest Thesiger, Colin Clive) OR queer readings (the Creature as Other; Frankenstein and Pretorious as gay dads; Pretorious as corruptor/mentor, etc).

I only wish I had discovered it sooner

I listen to a lot of horror podcasts, but so many of them are hosted by straight cis folks and it can lead to some conversations that make me feel very excluded as a listener or like I’m crazy for “projecting my queerness” onto horror films I love.
But this podcast makes me feel valid in all my queer reads of various movies! They always have such interesting, eye-opening, and hilarious conversations that are full of obvious enthusiasm and passion for everything they discuss.
I also really, really appreciate their efforts to be inclusive of the trans community. Even if they don’t always get it right, they always correct themselves when they make a mistake and I love that so much. I’m a queer trans man and this podcast feels like a safe listening space!

one of the good ones

I’ve dabbled in a LOT of horror podcasts and this is one of the only ones that stuck with me. really appreciate the wide range of films they discuss (even if they sometimes have to reach for a queer reading), and love the balance of more light-hearted B horror and the more serious arthouse stuff. great analysis and commentary!

Magnificent~*

I recently listened through all of the Horror Queer episodes on Apple and I sincerely enjoyed a lot of what these two have to offer. I love their dynamic and the analysis that they bring to these films. I also love that from the beginning they worked to bring on guests to speak from loved experiences that Joe and Trace simply don’t have. They’re always open to feedback and are willing to say “I hadn’t considered that perspective and I’m open to seeing it,” whether those perspectives are corrective feedback OR just a different view on a piece of media.

And of course I love the callbacks and the humor that they do bring to the table. (The episodes where Trace misused “yes, and” to Joe’s chagrin really GOT me.) Trace’s laugh seems like the kind you could pick out in a crowded room, and Joe’s clever wit sometimes sneaks up on me, but when I clicks I can’t help but grin. I’m excited to see where else these two bring us on their journey!
