[Horror Queers Podcast] The Gay Indentured Servant of Blumhouse’s ‘Fantasy Island’

Drink Every Time They Say “Fantasy.”

Vacation Month kicked off with a deep, uh, cave dive, into one of our personal favorite films: Neil Marshall’s 2005 masterpiece The Descent. Then we explored the world of perversity (and goat-fucking) in Nico Mastorakis’ 1976 video nasty Island of Death. Now, we’re heading to Fiji to have our wildest fantasies fulfilled in…..Blumhouse’s Fantasy Island (oof).

In the film, the enigmatic Mr. Roarke (Michael Peña) makes the secret dreams of his lucky guests come true at a luxurious but remote tropical resort, but when the fantasies turn into nightmares, the guests have to solve the island’s mystery in order to escape with their lives.

Episode 87 – Fantasy Island (2020)

Since we’re in the middle of “Vacation Month,” we’re taking a vacation! Enjoy this Patreon-exclusive (well, not anymore) episode that we recorded back in February for our loyal Patrons. Congrats, all you non-Patrons. Here’s a taste of what life is like on the wild side.

Prep your boring, inane (sex?) fantasies, because we are en route to Blumhouse’s Fantasy Island. This is the second Blumhouse production in as many months to feature pretty people battling villains with black goo coming out of their eyes; it’s also the second feature in a row from writer/director Jeff Wadlow to feature a gay Asian character, so someone’s got a fetish.

Up for discussion: Trace thinks this film is entertaining and stupid, while Joe thinks it is lazy and boring. We both agree, however, that the twist makes NO SENSE. Of course neither does the island’s geography, or the number of characters, or its resolution. Oh, and there’s the fun implications of suggesting being bullied turns you into a stalker/killer.

Thankfully we have goddesses Maggie Q and Lucy Hale (plus everyone’s favorite lovable asshole, Ryan Hansen) to keep us entertained as we wade through this nearly 2-hour train wreck. Remember when we said January/February horror doesn’t suck? Well…we may have spoken too soon.


Cross out Blumhouse’s Fantasy Island!

Coming up on Wednesday: We’re closing out vacation month with a look at a fairly toxic relationship in Colin Minihan’s 2018 film What Keeps You Alive.

– Joe & Trace

P.S. If you subscribe to our Patreon you can listen to bonus episodes! This month, we’ve got audio commentaries on Deep Blue Sea and The Cabin in the Woods, as well as additional episodes on Deep Blue Sea 3 and Jay Baruchel’s(?!) Random Acts of Violence.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
