‘Batman: Mask of the Phantasm’: The First (and Only?) Batman Slasher Film [Horror Queers Podcast]

Does Batman fuck?

After kicking off December with a proper holiday horror film in Michael Dougherty’s Krampus, we’re now moving on to a film released on Christmas Eve in the first (and only?) Batman slasher film, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm!

The film sees the troubled yet heroic Batman (Kevin Conroy) pitted against The Phantasm, a mysterious figure who is rubbing out Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals, and who many believe is the caped crusader himself. Batman’s alter ego, millionaire Bruce Wayne, is about to get married to the lovely Andrea Beaumont (Dana Delany), who helps him recover from his need to avenge his parents’ murder — meaning that his crime-fighting days may be numbered. To add to the mayhem, the unpredictable Joker (Mark Hamill) has an unexpected connection to the Phantasm.

Episode 103 – Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993)

Our Angel of Death awaits as we enter the dark streets of Gotham City to discuss the first (and only?) Batman slasher film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm! Joining us for the discussion is film/comics writer (and all-around swell gal) Lindsay Traves!

We’ll delve into the film’s rushed production and failure at the box office. Joe compares the Bruce/Andrea romance to a similar one in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and Lindsay gives her reading on the romantic (or sexual?) relationship between Batman and the Joker.

We’ll also highlight the importance of having an openly gay actor (Kevin Conroy) voice one of the world’s most iconic superheroes, lament the inherent gatekeep-iness of comics and have a grand ol’ time pitching the live-action casting of Andrea Beaumont.

Plus, Joker = horror (and plenty of Mark Hamill praise), balaclavas vs. bolas, Tia Carrere, and Trace confesses one of his incredibly embarrassing high school horror stories. Oh, and masturbating to video game characters, because why not?


Cross out Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.

Coming up on Wednesday: We’re getting festive with a discussion of toxic masculinity in openly gay director Chris Peckover’s 2016 Christmas horror comedy Better Watch Out.

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.
