Queer Horror, 'Innocent Boy', Lands at RevryTV
Updated: Oct 4
June 9th, 2020 - The Contested Edge and Mattioli Productions announced that Brock Cravys' queer horror, Innocent Boy will stream on Revry.tv, the global queer content platform in June of 2020.
Revry is like Netflix for LGBTQ shows, music, and podcasts - and it wants to make them available everywhere. The service offers up hours and hours of queer movies, TV, and originals to viewers around the world, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in over 100 countries and 200 million households. The acquisition of Innocent Boy, "was the right time to come to Revry," wrote Christopher Rodriquez, Chief Business Officer, and co-founder. "The new apps and site are amazing… and the short (Innocent Boy) looks wonderful!".
"The horror genre has been gaining in legitimacy for decades but has exploded in recent years, making genuine inroads into the public consciousness, often by overlaying a horror element to serious social issues. Black Lives Matter, mental illness, and people with disabilities have worked their way into plots of Get Out, Hereditary, and A Quiet Place. And The Contested Edge seeks to expand that scope even further."

"We are so stoked to license our film with Revry! The authentic representations of queer people, especially in underrepresented genres like horror, sci-fi, and fantasy, is a goal of ours; and Revry is providing that access." Said Brock Cravy, writer and director of the award-winning short, and executive producer at The Contested Edge. The queer, neon-western horror is continuing to rock the festival circuit, having won Best Short Horror at Outlantacon 2020, and Best Dark Drama at Oregon Scream week. Additionally, the short will screen at the Soho Horror Film Festival in London in June, Austin After Dark, and The Sick ’n Wrong Film Festival in Orlando this summer and early fall, respectively (lockdown permitting).
