#VundaHalloweenAthon Day 16: "LG-Boo!-TQ"

Welcome to Day 16 of our #VundaHalloweenAthon 

The 16th theme of the month is "LG-Boo!-TQ." Today we celebrate queer horror--movies with queer protagonists and/or by queer creators--or even just subvert heteronormativity and cisnormativity in some way. 

It might be an oldie you just never got around to seeing or something from a fresh young filmmaker who you haven't given a chance yet. The sky is the limit and bonus Pumpkin Points if you watch more than one movie a day on theme!

Here are a few recommendations from the team, taken from our own watchlists for today...

Group Pick: Jennifer's Body directed by Karyn Kusama is available on Amazon Prime. There is something timeless and yet entirely current about this 2009 horror comedy.  Enjoy the "totally lesbigay" energy of this film this Saturday.

Our official #VundaHalloweenAthon art was done by Josh Stifter who is not only an artist but a filmmaker. If you subscribe to his Flush Studios Patreon you can access great behind the scenes content. He has two feature length films: The Good Exorcist is a comedic horror film made for $7000 under the supervision of Robert Rodriguez available on TromaNOW (perfect for "Spooky & Spiritual" day) or ask Josh about Greywood's Plot a film about friendship and cryptids, which is touring the world at film festivals. Josh also has tons of great horror shorts we might be recommending later in the month.
