Happy last Monday of Pride Month, Goons, and welcome to a Call Your Ghoulfriends episode here on Slashers Podcast. Today, we are going all out and full on drag queen with our episode on Death Drop Gorgeous. You can view this one on Tubi or Shudder, and I'm sure Prime and other platforms, but Tubi is free, so if you don't want to cough up the cash, Tubi's your best bet! This film centers around a dejected bartender and an aging drag queen, who try to survive the eccentric and hostile nightlife of a corrupt city, as a masked maniac slaughters young gay men and drains them of blood. The film is written and directed by Brandon Perras, Michael J Ahern and Christopher Dalpe, which is essentially their debut but they have more in the works that we're super excited for.
Both Mikey and Ade feel it's important for horror to showcase more queer writers and directors, as well as story lines. We're so excited for you to hear this one, because the Ghoulfriends discuss how horror does have tons of homo-erotic moments, and not just A Nightmare on Elm Street part 2, but even more recent films such as Wrong Turn (reboot) and The Ranger feature LGBTQIA+ themes. We feel that this genre is a great place to showcase those themes. So grab your pride flag and your best pair of heels and listen in!
In addition to this fabulous episode, we also feature a HIDDEN TRACK today, with the song "Reflection" by Losing Lament. They are based out of Florida, so please check them out at losinglament.com where you can see their dark, bloody, bad ass music video, and also please find them on Instagram @losinglament , in addition to Facebook. Hope y'all enjoy this one, and if you want more hidden tracks in the future, please feel free to recommend up and coming artists and we will do our best to feature them!
Finally, since this is still Pride Month, if you would like to give back to LGBTQIA+ community, please support the onepulsefoundation.org . We love and miss our 49 and we will not let hate win.
