MoPOP’s monthly horror watchalong series is back!

And in July and in honor of MoPOP’s newest exhibition Rise Up! Stonewall and the LGBTQ Rights Movement we’ve invited one of our favorite returning guests, horror host Isabella Price, to select a queer horror film that she feels deserves a place on our list of 100+ Horror Films to See Before You Die. Isabella is featured in the Seattle Queer Icons section of the exhibition, and as host of Nocturnal Emissions has become one of Seattle’s most vital voices in horror and genre cinema. Isabella chose cult classic The Hunger, starring David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve, and Susan Sarandon in an incredibly stylized tale of a vampiric love triangle.

Here’s a handful of program elements that you can expect to see:

  • Pre-film introduction with MoPOP’s Robert Rutherford and Isabella L. Price, host Nocturnal Emissions.
  • Cheap-as-heck quarantine cosplay
  • Chat with Robert, Isabella and other fans during the film
  • Post-film discussion and Q&A with Robert and Isabella – be a part of the conversation!

If you happen to own a copy of the film, get it queued up at 7 p.m. PDT on Friday, May 21st! Otherwise, here’s where you can find Jacob’s Ladder online:
