  • Horror Queers Podcast Live Recording: A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 with Mark Patton!

    Bloody Disgusting's Horror Queers Podcast, which looks at horror films through a queer lens, will be having its first live recording as part of Fantastic Fest's LGBTQ+ sidebar! Hosts Trace Thurman and Joe Lipsett will be discussing the controversial 1985 sequel A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge with the film's star Mark Patton. Listen to them discuss the making of the film and how it has gone from the red-headed stepchild of the Nightmare franchise to wearing the "gayest horror film ever made" moniker as a badge of honor. The event is free and open to the public, so you don't need a Fantastic Fest badge to be able to attend!

    Yard Dog: The Party's Just Getting Started

    Party's just getting started, yeah, and is that Bob Schneider music they're playing? Maybe. But maybe it's also some of this, excuse me, fucking righteousvisual work that the man's been up to recently. We fairly raved about his monochrome etchings, back in the day; this new full-color painting/collage thing Schneider's doing is at least as impressive – and more vibrant across the spectrum of light. Been to Yard Dog lately? Here's you a good excuse.
