[Horror Queers Podcast] Celebrating Mother’s Day With Queer Baby Mama Drama in ‘Grace’

Call the Midwife.

Happy May, everyone! After looking at child molester Freddy Krueger in the 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, Joe and I decided to discuss something a bit less gross and disgusting for Mother’s Day this year! Well, as long as you don’t consider zombie babies that drink blood gross and disgusting. That’s right, we’re discussing Paul Solet‘s criminally under-seen 2009 film Grace!

In the film, a pregnant Madeline (Jordan Ladd, Cabin Fever) is involved in a car accident that leave her husband and unborn child dead. Desperate to have a child after trying to have one for years, she decides to carry her baby to term anyway. The child, a girl, initially appears stillborn but is eventually revived and named “Grace”. When Grace develops unhealthy smells, attracts flies, and craves blood, it becomes clear that there is something wrong with her.

Episode 72 – Grace (2009) feat. Anya Stanley

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! We’re celebrating this sacred holiday with a discussion of booby horror and queer baby mama drama in Paul Solet’s Grace! Joining us for the discussion is journalist and mother Anya Stanley, who brings some much-needed maternal instincts to the discussion. Fair warning, though: this is not a film to watch if you’re already pregnant..

Join us as we discuss the greatness that is the supremely underrated Jordan Ladd, as well as admire Solet’s use of sound design and lighting in the film. Plus, is the evil mother-in-law an example of unintentional camp? You tell us!

Also on the docket: a debate on how to pronounce the word “midwifery,” water births, Trace’s sore left nipple and learning to flambé while cooking liver and onions!

Cross out Grace!

Coming up on Wednesday: We’re celebrating the VOD release of Scoob! with a double feature of 1998’s Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island and its 2019 sequel Return to Zombie Island!

– Joe & Trace

P.S.  Keep an eye out for this month’s article on 1986’s extremely upsetting In a Glass Cage, which will be dropping in the next week or so. You can find all of the old articles here

P.P.S. As an added bonus, if you subscribe to our Patreon you can listen to bonus episodes!
