We celebrate Pride by discussing two queer horror films about the quest for musical success: “The Perfection” and “Bloodthirsty”.
THIS EPISODE: “THE PERFECTION” (2018) AND “BLOODTHIRSTY” (2020)
Happy Pride Month! We’re celebrating with two queer horror films about how talent can be both a blessing and a curse and the pressure to succeed at all costs when you’re considered “special”. The desire to be great can be an all-consuming hunger — a kind of bloodlust that’s hard to satiate. Thus, it makes a great backdrop for horror — whether it’s the twisty body/revenge horror of THE PERFECTION or the transformation/werewolf horror of BLOODTHIRSTY.
Watch the trailer for The Perfection.
