Weeklings! : A Gay's Guide to Halloween Scares (VIDEO)

If you're like me, you'll be spending this weekend re-watching great Halloween cinema of yore: Halloween, Psycho, Silence of the Lambs, Friday the 13th and anything where Vincent Price cackles like a lady. But have you actually considered why these movies are scary? In this edition of Weeklings!, I tell you what's actually frightening about classic horror films and point you to gay subtexts you may have missed. Yes, Cynthia Nixon makes a cameo.
