Queer Horror: The Stepford Wives

The Hollywood's bimonthly Queer Horror series is a goddamn Portland treasure, featuring scary flicks with an LGBT bent. March's offering is The Stepford Wives, because... well, let's hear host Carla Rossi tell it: “I actually saw The Stepford Wives for the first time this last December and it blew my mind, thanks to the relationship between Katharine Ross’ Joanna and Paula Prentiss’ Bobbie. Their friendship feels so real and earnest and is completely independent of the men in the film, and the destruction of that friendship by their husbands is a gut-wrenching tragedy. For a satirical ’70s paranoia thriller it feels shockingly, terrifyingly contemporary, and it only makes sense that Jordan Peele pulled so much from it for Get Out." Part of the Hollywood Theatre's 2019 Feminist March film series.
