[Horror Queers Podcast] Exploring Toxic Masculinity in ‘Better Watch Out’

Power Rangers.

The month of December has been dominated by holiday horror so far. Trace and I have tackled Krampus and the ill-advisedly-released-at-Christmas animated film, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.

Now it’s time to dissect a new classic: queer director Chris Peckover‘s Better Watch Out.

In the film, teenage babysitter Ashley (Olivia DeJonge), her young charge Luke (Levi Miller) and his best friend Garrett (Ed Oxenbould) are caught up in a home invasion. Events quickly and unexpectedly spiral out of control to include Ashley’s boyfriend Ricky (Aleks Mikic) and her ex-boyfriend Jeremy (Dacre Montgomery) in a film where not everything is as it seems.

The podcast does contain MAJOR spoilers, so be sure to watch the film before listening if you haven’t already seen it!

Episode 104 – Better Watch Out (2016) feat. Ariel Fisher

This week on the pod, we’re wrapping up the holiday season with queer writer/director Chris Peckover’s 2016 film Better Watch Out. We’re joined by returning guest Ariel Fisher and…well let’s just say that both the film and the discussion go places that you might not expect.

Big, flashing SPOILER WARNINGS for the film, as well as We Summon the Darkness.

Also: TRIGGER WARNING. We get into some heavy, uncomfortable, challenging topics, including rape, sexual assault, toxic masculinity and microaggressions. Take care of yourself before listening.

It’s not all doom and gloom, though: there’s also a running gag about the Power Rangers movie.


Cross out Better Watch Out!

Coming up on Wednesday: We’re taking a week off for the holidays, but rest assured that we’re still dropping a “new to most folks” episode. For its 20th anniversary this year, we’re looking back on Tarsem Singh’s The Cell with the release of the audio from our Nightstream Festival appearance back in October!

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.
