Queer-Horror-Nights-Q-Rated-announcement.001.webp

Radiant Circus, Token Homo & Last Frame have teamed up to launch Queer Horror Nights! A new film club devoted to queer, cult and classic horror cinema. Our first Q-RATED! season celebrates horror movies directed by queer filmmakers.

Q-RATED! will tell the story of how out, queer directors have long worked deep in the guts of the genre, forging its founding myths and re-imagining its most celebrated creations. They have also fought against the censorship and suppression of their twisted fantasies. Films will range from the rise of the ‘classic’ movie monsters in Hollywood’s heyday, to more recent visions of horror from the self-funded indie fringes of film production.

The Cured - David Freyne
@ The Castle Cinema
15th May 2022 | 14:00 

Writer/director David Freyne’s 2017 feature debut is set in Ireland after a partial cure has been found for a recent zombie outbreak. With disturbing echoes of both the global AIDS pandemic and terrorism during the Troubles, THE CURED explores what happens after we’ve been at each other’s throats.

Brought into fresh new light as we ‘learn to live with Covid-19’, THE CURED’s 'blend of kitchen-sink pungency, charged politics, and pummelling shocks... packs tension, resonance, and clout' (Total Film). It also stars Elliot Page, one of the few trans actors in the mainstream.

Queer Horror Nights is proud to present THE CURED in partnership with Irish Film London.

27th February - The Castle

We start in LGBT History Month with “the daddy of all monster movies”, James Whale’s 1931 film, FRANKENSTEIN. One of the most subversive horror films of all time, Whale’s macabre masterpiece was brutally censored for almost 50 years, damaging the radical vision of its out, queer filmmaker and profoundly altering the meaning of his highly influential film.

Based on Peggy Webling’s 1927 stage show, "Whale’s timeless adaptation of Mary Shelley’s masterpiece novel" was partially restored in 1985, reviving its revolutionary message. We are proud to present this powerful “allegory of social exclusion” and “the first great American horror film” as the first of our Queer Horror Nights and the launch of our

Q-RATED! season.

There will be an introduction before the film and you are invited to join your horror hosts @tokenhomo x @lastframeclub in the cinema bar afterwards for a post-screening social.
