The Bleak Outlook of a World With AIDS in Todd Haynes’ ‘Safe’ [Horror Queers Podcast]

Moore Milk, Please.

After wrapping up 2022 with a discussion of Carter Smith’s Into the Dark entry “Midnight Kiss“, we kicked off 2023 with a re-do of one of our earliest episodes on Richard Shepard’s The Perfection. Now, we’re talking about what Wes Craven dubbed “the scariest film of 1995” in Todd Haynes‘ AIDS allegory Safe, which boasts an astonishing performance from Julianne Moore.

The 1987-set Safe follows Carol White (Moore) a suburban housewife in Los Angeles, whose monotonous life is abruptly changed when she becomes sick with a mysterious illness caused by the environment around her.

Episode 212: Safe (1995)

Why do you think you’re sick? Well you better find out because we’re discussing Todd Haynes’ (not Todd Solondz’s) 1995 AIDS allegory Safe! Joining us for the discussion is returning guest Andrew Scahilll!

Join us as we discuss Julianne Moore’s heartbreaking performance before going all in on the social commentary that Haynes weaves into the film. From the mundane aspects of suburban life to the dangers of joining a cult built around the concept of self-blame, we’ve got it all! Plus: milk vendettas, all fruit diets, Beth Grant(!!!), igloos and allergic reactions to heteronormativity.


Cross out Safe!

Coming up on Wednesday: We’re revisiting Guillermo del Toro’s 2015 Gothic romance Crimson Peak, with a special focus on the bisexual energy provided by Jessica Chastain’s Lucille.

P.S. Subscribe to our Patreon for more than 222 hours of additional content! We’re wrapping up the year with episodes on Netflix’s Edgar Allan Poe-focused murder mystery The Pale Blue Eye, Shudder’s anthology sequel Scare Package II: Rad Chad’s Revenge, the creepy found footage film Skinamarink, Blumhouse’s killer robot movie M3GAN, and an audio commentary on Cloverfield, just in time for its 15th 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.
