Blumhouse Launches ATTACK OF THE QUEERWOLF, The Podcast We All Need In Our Lives
Podcasts are a dime a dozen nowadays and they have one for anything and everything that you may be interested in. Following the epic success of their Shock Waves podcast, Blumhouse has started to expand with shows such as the interview centric Post Mortem with Mick Garris, the live streaming roleplaying game Fear Initiative and their sociopolitical satire The Oval Tapes.
Perhaps, though, the one that may be the most exciting is Attack of the Queerwolf. I mean, look at that name. LOOK AT THAT LOGO. This was a hit before the first listen. Now with the first episode out, we can say without question that Attack of the Queerwolf is perhaps one of the most uproariously funny, poignant and absolutely necessary podcast for genre fans, cinephiles, LBQTQ advocates and activists, and decent human beings everywhere.
With our three co-hosts Mark Fortin, Michael Kennedy and Nay Bever, alongside our very own Brennan Klein in the producer role, Queerwolf has proven after just it’s premiere that it will be an important and integral add to your podcast library.
Vibing 100% with what we stand for at Ghastly Grinning, Queerwolf is discussing horror movies from an LBGTQ perspective with the aid of their own queer hosts. The first episode is all about new French extremism entry High Tension and while the breakdown of the movie is quite literally laugh-out-loud funny (an Alexandre Aja impression had me smiling for days), what makes the show special is the ability from the hosts to deconstruct the film from a different perspective. Speaking from the perspective of a cisgender straight white male, I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to have this kind of breakdown brought to the mass public. It’s truly refreshing, eye opening and entertaining to hear how someone from the gay community sees a film compared to how I may view it.
The first episode is proof positive that Queerwolf may become one of the most important shows of the year, expertly flexing wit, intelligence and NSFW humor to craft a show that is equal parts entertaining and educational. Find the full breakdown below and make sure to rate, review, subscribe. You’re not going to want to miss episode two breaking down sexy sax man and The Lost Boys.
