Queer Horror Panel – The Characters We Identified With

Happy Pride! Today I’m joined by an entirely kickass panel of creators I greatly admire, talking about queer representation in horror. Specifically – where we saw ourselves, the characters we identified with and how those options have (slightly) broadened.

Harbinger – An Original Screenplay By Marco Mannone Offering A New Perspective On An Old Favorite

I had the privilege of reading this script and it’s one of those concepts that is so perfect it seems it should have been done a thousand times before. The best ideas tend to feel this way, and the best ideas tend to have me kicking myself for not thinking to do the seemingly obvious. Fully experienced both of these while reading. Marco’s script oozes with heart, and while it does pay tribute to all the beloved slashers so close to our collective horror-loving-hearts, it delivers a hell of a lot more than nostalgia. By the end, I was choked up and my heart strings had been effectively tugged. Can’t wait to see the kill scenes on screen. Take a look at this pitch video and let the excitement commence.
