People have been terrified by the delights of a horror film since the late 1800s, during the earliest stages of motion-picture film. Since its creation, horror has developed into more than just a genre. It's a space to face our collective fears and explore the unknown. We're drawn to characters like Dracula or Freddy Krueger because they stand out from what is familiar. Otherness is a popular theme within horror films, especially for the LGBTQ+ community.
Today, we chat with Michael Varrati and Brendan Haley, two filmmakers with a special admiration for the genre of horror.
They'll walk us through the queer themes in some of our favorite classic scary movies like "Nightmare on Elm Street 2," what otherness means in cinema, and how queer horror is still evolving today.
