The Boulet Brothers' Dragula: Resurrection

The Boulet Brothers' Dragula: Resurrection ★★★★½


A celebration of all things queer! And yes, Halloween is definitely queer! 

It showcases drag as so much more than the box that is often pushed to the masses. Here we have drag in such a raw form, with the talents of the creators front and center. The results are awe-inspiring, sickening, and an embodiment of the literal blood, sweat, and tears that go into this art form.

This special is a reminder that drag embraces more than we tend to recognize it as. It’s gay lives, black lives, trans lives, straight lives. It’s emotional, it’s camp, it’s serious, it’s silly. I’m so grateful for The Boulet Brothers and their vision. They help me be so damn proud of being a queer horror lover.

I’m convinced the last segment edited to Orville Peck’s Dead of Night was made exclusively for me.
