[Horror Queers Podcast] The Lurid Melodrama of Lesbian Thriller ‘The Quiet’

Camilla Bored in the Slutterdome.

We’re still jet-lagged from all of the travel during “Vacation Month”, especially last week’s trip to Rome for Tenebrae. This week we’re taking it easy with a very, very low-key thriller in the form of The Quiet, the 2005 incest drama from lesbian director Jamie Babbit and queer screenwriters Abdi Nazemian and Micah Schraft.

In the film, deaf/mute orphan Dot (Camilla Belle in her best performance) moves in with the Deer family, much to new “step sister” Nina (Elisha Cuthbert)’s chagrin. But Nina and her father, Paul (Martin Donovan) have a secret and it doesn’t take long for Dot to become involved in the scandal.

Featuring a demeaning role for Edie Falco as the Deer family matriarch and an embarrassing role for Shawn Ashmore as a confessional jock who is turned on by Dot’s disability, The Quiet is never ridiculous or serious enough. Falling somewhere in the middle proves to be its downfall, but discussing it proves plenty entertaining thanks to the comedic styling of our special guests: Patrick Hamilton and Gena Radcliffe of the Kill by Kill podcast.

Episode 90 – The Quiet (2005) feat. Kill by Kill

On this week’s episode, we’re evoking the spirit of American Beauty with lesbian director Jamie Babbit’s incest drama/thriller The Quiet. Thankfully we’ve got Patrick Hamilton and Gena Radcliffe of the Kill by Kill podcast to help us unpack all of the lurid melodrama of this Elisha Cuthbert/Camilla Belle stinker.

Where did this snooze-worthy film go wrong: the languid pacing? The atrocious dialogue? Aiming for prestige instead of embracing queerness and camp?

In between bouts of maniacal laughter about milkshakes, masturbation and Belle’s complete lack of screen presence, we never quite reach consensus (Trace *likes* this film…but can’t explain why!). All we know for certain is that Connor Kennedy wants to fuck us!


Cross out The Quiet!

Coming up on Wednesday: We’re dipping into slasher franchise territory with a look back at Urban Legends: Final Cut for its 20th anniversary!

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.
