As my badly-behaved blogging alter ego TOKEN HOMO and my Queer Horror Nights co-hosts LAST FRAME CLUB get ready to announce our first full season of film screenings in London, we’re launching an irregular newsletter. Sign up to be first in line for event info, ticket offers, newsletter goodness and some gory giveaways (like this one ▼).

GORY GIVEAWAYSign up to the Queer Horror Nights newsletter by 23:59 on 29 JAN 2022 for a chance to win a copy of one of our favourite collections of queer writing about horror cinema, “ROBIN WOOD: ON THE HORROR FILM”! (See Rules below).

Robin Wood (1931 – 2009) theorised horror cinema as Western culture’s “collective nightmares” and explained how the movie monsters we love very often symbolise the “return of the repressed”. His 1979 edited collection of essays – co-produced with Richard Lippe for a programme of horror film screenings at the Toronto International Film Festival – The American Nightmare: Essays on the Horror Film, was pivotal to the critical appreciation of horror cinema. If you’re looking for a queer-informed understanding of horror cinema, there really is no finer place to start your reading.
