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.

Watch The Perfection now on Netflix, and stream Bloodthirsty on Shudder.

ABOUT THIS PODCAST

Cheer and Loathing

She’s a lover, he’s a fighter. Together, they’re CHEER AND LOATHING.

Tune in to hear your hosts, Stephanie (Cheer) and Casey (Loathing), clash over the films they love — and the ones they love to hate. With a new theme each month and related topics each week, they’ll make a case for the good and the bad; it may even get a bit ugly!

Stephanie (Cheer) is the Editor-in-Chief for Morbidly Beautiful, and Casey (Loathing) is the Program Director and host of the Ominous Origins Podcast.

New episodes of the CHEER AND LOATHING podcast will be headed your way every other Sunday. Be sure to follow us on social media for teasers, show announcements, and more.
