About Us

Pink Panic. Lavender Menace. Rainbow’s Revenge. We’re serving up Gothic, slasher, supernatural, body, psychological, toe-curling horror through a queer lens. From Frankenstein to Dr. Frank-N-Furter, and from Catherine Deneuve to The Babadook, the transgression of horror has often skewed a little...queer. We're flinging open the closet door (don't mind the serial killer hiding behind our going out clothes) and spotlighting the rainbow end of the horror spectrum. Gay ghosts? We're into it. Lesbian vampires? We want them (seriously, call us). Trans Final Girls? Send them in. 

Our inaugural 2021 event will be held online (thanks, pandemic), but we hope to make a festival home based in central North Carolina when we're it's easier to gather in-person.

The upside for filmmakers is that means your aunt in Wisconsin, you college roommate in Barcelona, and your childhood best friend who now lives in Hong Kong can all watch your film at the same event!

not because they don’t see it, but because they see it and they don’t want it to exist.”
