The Queer Allegories in ‘The Wolves of Kromer’ [Horror Queers Podcast]

Faerie Tale Queertre.

After celebrating the release of Spiral: From the Book of Saw (review) with a discussion of James Wan’s influential debut film Saw and closing out the month of May with the narcissism of Hollywood in The Neon Demon, we’re kicking off Pride Month with a look at Will Gould‘s 1998 morality tale The Wolves of Kromer!

In the film, a wicked old crone (Rita Davies) and her goofy sidekick (Margaret Towner) kill their mistress (Rosemarie Dunham) and frame two wolven lovers (James Layton and Lee Williams), inciting a torch-bearing mob of religious zealots to seek vengeance on the hapless pair.

Episode 128 – The Wolves of Kromer (1998)

Grab your fur coat and tail because we’re heading to the UK for a little Faerie Tale Queertre to discuss Will Gould’s 1998 morality tale The Wolves of Kromer, which might be the only film we’ve covered with a 0% Rotten Tomatoes score!

Join us as we discuss the film’s very specific aesthetic (think Vacation Bible School videos or PBS original programming) before delving into the film’s admittedly on-the-nose allegories (wolves = queers) and try to figure out why Boy George only has a 5-second appearance in the opening scene.

Plus, murderous (and possibly queer?) old biddies who are horny for the Lord, a poppers anecdote and the revelation that Joe once worked at a gay bar?!

Oh, and why does this queer film’s only sex scene have to be a straight one? We lycan’t!


Cross out The Wolves of Kromer!

Coming up on Wednesday: We’re heading into the land of adolescent misfits and overall weirdness in Richard Bates Jr.’s superb horror film Excision!

P.S. Subscribe to our Patreon for tons of additional content! This month, we’re going to rank the films in The Conjuring universe and release episodes on The Conjuring and its sequel The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It. We’ll also have a summer movie preview and an episode on Hulu’s new pregnancy horror film False Positive.

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.
