Shudder has today released the key art for upcoming docu-series Queer for Fear. The four-part docu-series about the history of queer people in the thriller genre. From executive producers Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies) and Steak House (Launchpad, The Mustang).

Queer for Fear is a four-part documentary series about the history of the LGBTQ+ community in the horror and thriller genres. From its literary origins with queer authors Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, and Oscar Wilde to the pansy craze of the 1920s that influenced Universal Monsters and Hitchcock, through the “lavender scare” alien invasion films of the mid-20th century and the AIDS obsessed bloodletting of 80s vampire films, Queer for Fear re-examines genre stories through a queer lens, seeing them not as violent, murderous narratives, but as tales of survival that resonate thematically with queer audiences everywhere.

The docu-series features interviews with series consultant Renée “Nay” Bever (“Attack of the Queerwolf” Podcast co-host), Mark Gatiss (Co-Creator, Writer & Actor, Sherlock and Dracula on BBC), Kimberly Peirce (Writer and Director, Boys Don’t CryCarrie (2013), Lea DeLaria (Actor, The Rocky Horror Picture Show (2000), Orange is the New Black),Jennifer Tilly (Actor, Child’s Play franchise), Karyn Kusama (Director, Jennifer’s Body, Yellowjackets), Leslye Headland(Creator, Russian Doll), Oz Perkins (Writer & Director, Gretel & Hansel), and more.
