‘Shiva Baby’ Is a Secret Jewish Horror Film [Horror Queers Podcast]

Sugar Goop.

We kicked off August discussing the ins and outs of the photography industry in the American giallo Eyes of Laura Mars before getting serious with a discussion on the afterlife and religion in queer director Alejandro Amenábar‘s The Others. Now we’re somewhere in between drama and comedy with writer/director Emma Seligman‘s raucous comedy slash anxiety-driven Jewish horror film, Shiva Baby.

In the film, Rachel Sennott stars as Danielle, a young woman who is secretly doing sex work on the side of her College degree. As the film opens, Danielle is meeting with her married lover Max (Danny Deferrari) before heading to a Shiva, a week of Jewish mourning, where she meets her parents Debbie (Polly Draper) and Joel (Fred Melamed).

Danielle’s lies about her financial status and career plans quickly begin to surface when Max arrives with his wife Kim (Dianna Agron) and baby in tow. Then there’s Maya (Molly Gordon), the girl that Danielle made out with and never called.

Can Danielle survive the Shiva without all of her secrets coming out? Only a screaming baby, the unlocked phone and her supportive/nagging mother stand in her way.
