Queer for Fear presented by Shudder
Shudder will present a first-look panel for the upcoming original docuseries "Queer for Fear," which centers on the history of Queer people in the thriller/horror genre. From its literary origins with authors Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, and Oscar Wilde to the pansy craze of the 1920s that inspired Universal Monsters and Hitchcock, through the “lavender scare” alien invasion films of the mid-20th century, and the AIDS-obsessed bloodletting of 80s vampire films, Queer For Fear explores the role the LGBTQ+ community played in front of and behind the camera.
