Get Ready for a Different Kind of Haunt
Listen up, horror fans! If you thought this Halloween season was going to be just about the same old scares, think again. Hulu is stirring the pot with something utterly unique — a ghost-hunting show with a queer twist. Say hello to “Living for the Dead,” where paranormal exploration meets LGBTQ+ representation, narrated by none other than Kristen Stewart.
The Haunting of Copper Queen Hotel
The most recent sneak peek into the show’s eerie and spine-tingling investigations took us to Arizona’s haunted Copper Queen Hotel. In the clip, we see Logan Taylor and Alex Le May stumbling upon what appears to be a demonic presence—casually hanging out in a chair. The entity even takes the time to respond back when the duo attempts to communicate with it. It’s enough to make even the most hardcore horror aficionado squirm in their seat.
“The new clip sees the team investigate Arizona’s haunted Copper Queen Hotel. The newly released sneak peek features Logan Taylor and Alex Le May as they supposedly find the signs of a demonic presence sitting in a chair.”
Not for the Faint-Hearted
If you’re one of those who can’t handle the jitters, you might want to pass on this one. The series doesn’t hold back on the chills, thrills, or, in this case, queer representation. “Living for the Dead” is already being labeled as “the most gayest, most funnest, most titillating queer ghost-hunting show ever.”
“The show will see the teams helping the living across the US by healing the dead… Dubbed ‘Ghost Hunties,’ they’ll explore various haunted locations as they push the boundaries between the living and the dead.”
The Minds and Hearts Behind the Show
Created by the same geniuses behind ‘Queer Eye,’ the show has a star-studded team at its helm. Apart from narrating, Kristen Stewart also puts on her producer cap via the company she started with Dylan Meyer and Maggie McLean.
“It’s so cool and enlivening that me and my best friend CJ Romero had this funny idea, and now it’s a show,” Stewart said. Further revealing that the show started as “a bit of a hypothetical silly pipe dream, and now I am so proud to have shepherded something that is as moving and meaningful as it is truly a gay old time.”
Why It’s More Than Just a ‘Gay Old Time’
Stewart commends the cast for their courage and heart, as they take viewers to haunted locations that most wouldn’t dare to explore. Also on the paranormal team roster are Juju Bae, Ken Boggle, and Roz Hernandez, each adding their own unique flair to the investigations.
“Commending the cast, [Kristen Stewart] said they ‘make me laugh and cry and they had the courage and heart to take us places I wouldn’t go by myself.'”
So, if you’re seeking some spine-chilling adventures mixed with a dash of queer celebration, make sure to catch “Living for the Dead” this spooky season. You won’t regret it. Or maybe you will, but in the best way possible!
“Living for the Dead” is now streaming on Hulu. Get ready for an otherworldly experience like no other.
