(This episode initially posted missing about 30 minutes of the show. This is the complete version. My apologies for any confusion.) Take a journey back in time with us to a world of mythological monsters, petulant gods, men in miniskirts and marauding MAGGIE SMITHs. I'm finishing off our pre-holiday look at Horror-Adjacent Comfort Films with a chat on 1981's CLASH OF THE TITANS directed by DESMOND DAVID and starring HARRY HAMLIN, LAURENCE OLIVIER, CLAIRE BLOOM, BURGESS MEREDITH and the eternally fabulous MAGGIE SMITH. But the real star of the film is the brilliant stop-motion animation by RAY HARRYHAUSEN. (Anyone else have Medusa-induced nightmares?)

In ABBOTT and COSTELLO's charmingly SPOOKTACULAR comedy THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES, two ghosts (LOU COSTELLO and MARJORIE REYNOLDS) falsely accused of being traitors during the Revolutionary War must find a lost letter from George Washington that will prove their innocence and break their curse...all while scaring the pants of their manor home's current residents!

Once upon a time, two fierce young filmmakers set out to make a documentary about the legend of Mark Patton. They were never heard from again... In this fourth installment of my casual chats with out gay horror filmmakers, I'm honored to have with me TYLER JENSEN and ROMAN CHIMIENTI, the co-directors of the smash hit documentary https://www.screamqueendocumentary.com/ (SCREAM QUEEN! MY NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET.) In addition to discussing the challenges of piecing together a cohesive and powerful story as it unfolds in real time, we discuss the evolution of A Nightmare on Elm Street 2's queer storylines from stigma to cultural touchstone, homophobia on the convention circuit and the importance of gay mentorship. https://www.screamqueendocumentary.com/ (Scream Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street )sets the records straight about the controversial sequel to A Nightmare on Elm Street, which ended Mark Patton’s acting career, just as it was about to begin. Scream Queen follows Patton as he travels to horror conventions across the U.S.Each new city unwraps a chapter from his life that is met with equal parts joyful and bittersweet detail, as he attempts to make peace with his past and embrace his legacy as cinema’s first male “scream queen.” Scream Queen also finds Patton confronting Freddy’s Revenge cast and crew for the first time, including co-stars Robert Rusler, Kim Myers and Clu Gulager, as well as Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund.Watch Scream, Queen!

During our insightful chat which first aired in December of 2018, we discuss some of the behind-the-scenes stories of the making of https://screamqueenz.com/227-2/ (TALES OF POE), featured in https://screamqueenz.com/227-2/ (Episode 227, )how he managed to wrangle all of those fantastic 80’s horror legends into doing it, his encounter with http://clivebarker.info/ (CLIVE BARKER) over Bart’s film https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0800255/?ref_=nm_ov_bio_lk2 (VINDICATION), his on-going friendship with his Queen, https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0454415/ (ADRIENNE KING) and much, much more.

“It was never too late to exchange the things you believed defined you for something better.”-Guillermo Del Toro To kick off Pride Month, I've chosen to discuss GUILLERMO DEL TORO's Oscar-winning fantasy film, THE SHAPE OF WATER. On the surface, the story appears to be simply a sci fi Beauty and the Beast/Creature From the Black Lagoon mashup. Look closer, and you'll see a story of people who are considered "less than" by a cruel and soulless society who rise up to fight against that system in the name of an untraditional love. Not only is that Queer AF, but the film also echoes much of what is happened today with the #BlackLivesMatter movement. My special guest is actor/singer/supervillian MAYA MURPHY (21st Century Demon Hunter). THE SHAPE OF WATER was written and directed by GUILLERMO DEL TORO and stars SALLY HAWKINS, DOUG JONES, OCTAVIA SPENCER, RICHARD JENKINS and MICHAEL SHANNON. It also won the 2018 Academy Award for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Music and Best Production Design.
