All Critics (41) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (41)

  • Fascinating film... Very, very interesting stuff.

    February 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Perhaps the slickly made documentary overstates the cultural impact of a little-seen and widely disliked film. However, it earns points for scraping at the surface of something rarely discussed in film fandom - homosexuality in horror.

    February 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • There are interviews with academics and drag queens and fans of the horror genre, and this gives the movie a wide-ranging perspective that helps us better understand the moving personal story at its core.

    February 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Scream, Queen! feels a bit self-indulgent at times, exploring so many tangents that it tends to lose focus. Nonetheless, it's a fascinating sociological examination of the circumstances surrounding a film that inadvertently became a camp classic.

    February 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Scream, Queen! reaches into the fabulous recesses of queer horror fans, filmmakers, and academics to offer a well-rounded and humorous accounting of the queer cult classic.

    October 30, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • There's a radiant humanity to this horror-doc that takes it from fascinating fun to truly stupendous.
