Episode 52 - The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

November 16, 2017

We're taking a queer-slanted look at the much-lauded first giallo from Dario Argento, the film that set in motion the tide of gialli to come out of Italy in the 70s. The Bird With The Crystal Plumage is a taut, stylish thriller with not one but TWO queer characters - but how did this product of its time aimed at a macho audience stand up to an LGBT grilling in 2017? Only one way to find out! See what gialli have in common with Scooby Doo and telenovelas, hear all about Turd Girl's First Date, not to mention Daddy Creamy, the Vagina Eye and the Screaming Mimi. We're on form in this very funny episode. Giallo fans will never look at an art gallery the same again...

Screaming Queenz Ep 51 - The Descent

October 27, 2017

Take the plunge this Halloween with our look at Neil Marshall's British horror 'The Descent'. Dubbed 'chicks with picks', this is Stephen's choice of Halloween viewing. Although, shockingly, not all the Screaming Queenz think this film is THAT amazing. Find out why. There are spoilers, a ton of bad language, and terrible jokes about lemons. Tool up. We're going down!

Screaming Queenz Ep 50 - Halloween

October 25, 2017

It's only right that our 50th episode should fall on Halloween - and what better excuse to look at my favourite horror movie of all time. 1978's seminal horror classic Halloween, directed by John Carpenter and starring the Queen of Horror Jamie Lee Curtis, still scares audience to this day. And no matter how many times Michael Myers is shot, stabbed or remade by Rob Zombie we still can't get enough of him - but why? What sets him apart as the ultimate slasher? Find out in our new episode. Spoilers ahoy!

Screaming Queenz Ep 49 - Plan 9 vs Ghostshark!

October 13, 2017

In Part 2 of our trawl through the 'so bad it's good' canon, we come to the ultimate bad movie 'Plan 9 From Outer Space'... but is it as bad as people say? Yes. But we love it. Why did it cost me £70 though? Find out in this episode, before we take on the SyFy channel masterpiece 'Ghost Shark'. You'll laugh. You'll mainly cry. Bad movies never felt so good!

Screaming Queenz Ep 48 - The Bad Seed

October 1, 2017

In our latest trawl through the camp end of horror we’re looking at The Bad Seed (1956). Patty McCormack plays pigtailed sociopath Rhoda Penmark, the perfect little girl who will do anything to get what she wants. Whilst showering her parents with a ‘basket of kisses’ she’s also murdering anyone who gets in her way. Almost impossibly camp and yet imbued with heart and terrific performances, The Bad Seed has to be seen to be believed, with a controversial ending that packs a mighty punch. Spoilers ahoy. If you haven’t seen The Bad Seed then you really need to question your life choices, then join us as three gay men aspire to be as fierce and fabulous as an 8 year old psychopath!

Screaming Queenz Ep 47 - So Bad It’s Good Part 1

September 15, 2017

It takes a lot of effort to make as bad a movie as Troll 2, but thank God someone did! Known as the best worst movie ever made, it has to be seen to be believed. So visit the town of Nilbog with us but don't drink the free milk or get involved in a popcorn bukkake... After that we're running from nothing with Marky Mark in M Night Shyamalan's notorious crapfest, The Happening. Is it a misunderstood eco-horror throwback to the B-movies of yesteryear? Or is it just a pile of vomit? Only one way to find out. Tune in and laugh along with us in the first part of our epic trawl through the bargain bin of atrocious film-making...

Screaming Queenz Ep 46 - Strait Jacket

September 1, 2017

When it comes to camp horror, they don't come much camper than Joan Crawford as an axe-murderer who refuses to age gracefully in Strait Jacket. The combination of a bona fide Hollywood diva clinging desperately to her career, and schlock-meister William Castle, not to mention a pulpy script by Robert Bloch, was never going to be dull. So hear all about the trash epic that is Strait Jacket, and hear us bitch about the behind the scenes shenanigans of a true gay icon who was so fierce she could give all your favourite villains a run for their money!

Spoilers ahoy!

Screaming Queenz Ep 45 - The Greasy Strangler!

August 19, 2017

This one's for all the Hootie Tootie Disco Cuties! Gross-out horror comedy The Greasy Strangler has become a modern cult classic and a staple of stoned, drunken party viewing. Endlessly quotable, mainly disgusting, surreal and downright stupid. You either love it, or you hate it. And it divided the room for us! Hear us thrash it out over whether this film is a work of genius or toilet humour of the worst kind!

Contains poilers, not to mention lots of gross jokes about jizz and shitting the bed!

Screaming Queenz Ep 44 - Fright Night

July 17, 2017

The classic 80s vampire flick with more than a passing resemblance to something a little queer. What links this movie with gay porn, and what went on between Roddy McDowall and Tab Hunter? We talk fangs, femme fatales and fabulous queens in this bloodsucker special. Filthy language and spoilers ahoy!
