Queer Horror: A Closer Walk with Thee

Coming just in time for Halloween, the new thriller A Closer Walk with Thee aims to take care of your seasonal scare needs while offering a heaping helping of homoeroticism!

 

A Closer Walk with Thee is a queer psychological horror feature. In fact, it may actually be the first of its kind! As far as we can tell, there are currently zero narrative features centered around gay “curing” exorcisms (which are a real thing that still tragically exist). The growing movement of “deliverance” churches (Evangelical exorcism) is a previously untapped yet rich genre territory that the filmmakers were excited to explore. According to their original Kickstarter page, a major catalyst in getting the film made, the movie is “an unrelenting and intense emotional experience that will offer something unique to queer, horror, and art house fan-bases alike.”

Czekaj has a unique visual style and a bright color pallet that keep you captivated even while the story goes to some extremely bizarre places. One critic remarked that the film is “like something David Lynch would have made if he were an angry Polish kid.”
