Shudder presented a panel for its Original Documentary Series ‘Queer for Fear’ at San Diego Comic-Con earlier today. Check out an extended clip, which debuted during the panel today at Comic-Con.
‘Queer for Fear’ is a four-part documentary series about the history of the LGBTQ+ community in the horror and thriller genres. From its literary origins with queer authors Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, and Oscar Wilde to the pansy craze of the 1920s that influenced Universal Monsters and Hitchcock; from the “lavender scare” alien invasion films of the mid-20th century to the AIDS obsessed bloodletting of 80s vampire films; through genre-bending horrors from a new generation of queer creators; ‘Queer for Fear’ re-examines genre stories through a queer lens, seeing them not as violent, murderous narratives, but as tales of survival that resonate thematically with queer audiences everywhere.
‘Queer for Fear’will premiere Thursday, September 29 on Shudder.
