The Hollywood Theatre's bimonthly program QUEER HORROR takes its love for scary movies one step too far with SCREAM! Sponsored by Royale Brewing Company, this special Pride screening puts Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi in Drew Barrymore’s shoes – and ribbed sweater – in a pre-show tribute to the ‘90s slasher classic!
Directed by Wes Craven and written by out queer screenwriter Kevin Williamson, 1996’s SCREAM follows final girl Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) as a ghost-faced killer knocks off her friends one by one – and the only way to survive this real-life scary movie is to know the rules! Featuring Courtney Cox, Rose McGowan, David Arquette, and Drew Barrymore in one of the most iconic opening s...cenes of all time, SCREAM completely altered the course of millennial horror – inspiring its own franchise, TV series, and decades of imitators – and continued a century-long legacy of queer filmmakers shaping the cultural consciousness of an entire film genre with gleeful wit and buckets of blood.
Thursday, June 21st at 9:30 PM | $10

ABOUT QUEER HORROR:
QUEER HORROR is a bimonthly festival of genre works by queer artists, performers, and filmmakers questioning horror’s relation to queerness and what it means to identify with the monster. Maybe it’s the fact that queer people are so often relegated to shadows of otherness that the horror genre is more immediately relatable for us. We grew up with boogeymen. We’ve lived with boogeymen. Goblins and ghosts are a welcome escape from real-life monstrosities.
From the work of James Whale and John Waters to Patricia Highsmith and Clive Barker, horror has deeply impacted queer culture and sensibilities and QUEER HORROR asks why. QUEER HORROR is programmed and hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi and her human avatar Anthony Hudson, with artwork by resident artist Jason Edward Davis.
