Each week, queer hosts Joe Lipsett and Trace Thurman discuss a horror film with LGBTQ+ themes, a high camp quotient or both.

    Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991) feat. Mark O. Estes

    Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991) feat. Mark O. Estes

    Just in time for its 30th anniversary, we're dipping back into the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise with a look at Rachel Talalay's 1991 entry, Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare.
    Joining us to discuss his childhood favorite (and gateway into horror) is Mark O. Estes, writer and host of the Midnight Social Distortion podcast.
    This film is...a lot, particularly how it balances laughs (Looney Tunes!), scares and camp. Is it paying homage to the franchise or simply doing a poor imitation of previous films?
    Plus: discussion of "Final" entries in franchises, comparisons to Hellraiser: Bloodline, tangents on Paranormal Activity and Friday the 13th, films that that made us feel magical as kids, the subversion of John Doe's death and the film's treatment of sexual assault. Like we said: it's A LOT!

Finally!

Great podcast! I’ve been looking for a queer-centered horror podcast for ages, and this one’s my sweet spot. Good film picks, interesting guests/research, and entertaining hosts!

Gah I like it but…

But it’s so weird to have these two cis white dudes represent queerness. It’s like weirdly alienating to be like “oh wow yeah they like love white twinks in movies how original” or the one dude was talking about how he spends hella money to go to Alamo Drafthouse cause it’s quiet and its like idk black people talk in movies sorry you have to pay an extra 4 bucks to go to the theater with weird draconian noise rules to avoid us? Idk its weird I do like the show but like get a cohost or change the name to horror gays or something
