When a Queer Horror Short Makes Me a Size Queen

Innocent Boy is a strikingly sleek, disturbing yet tantalizing short film that runs just about 11 minutes long—and I imagine you’ll walk away from this one wanting more.

From Boys, Bears and Scares:

The characters and the concepts presented are such a tease, because they’re compelling enough to warrant a deeper dive. I can’t go into detail without giving it away, but there’s so much packed into the short runtime that we barely get a chance to bask in the queer and social issues director/writer Brock Cravy takes on: trans lives, race, male prostitution, drugs, self-loathing Johns, and murder and mayhem—all in the middle of redneck nowhere!

It’s darkly mesmerizing (with glorious, Argento-inspired lighting) and could so easily be expanded into a full-length queer backwoods horror flick.

Let’s hope Brock Cravy has a full-length in the works, whether it’s an embellishment of this short film or a completely different queer horror story. The style, themes, and techniques used here demonstrate the kind of creativity I imagine when I think of someone, anyone, adapting my gay horror slasher Scream, Queen into a film!
