The Hollywood Theatre’s bimonthly series Queer Horror kicks off Pride weekend with RESIDENT EVIL in 35mm! Sponsored by Double Mountain Brewery, Finger Bang nail salon, and Lincoln Memorial Park & Funeral Home, this Pride edition hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi opens with a Night of 1,000 Millas pre-show starring Mars, Kimber Shade, Rita Lynn, and Pepper Pepper all playing the super-powered action heroine!
Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson from the smash-hit video game series, RESIDENT EVIL opens with Alice (Milla Jovovich) waking up in a mansion without memories – until she’s quickly swept away by a tactical response team into the Hive, the evil Umbrella Corporation’s underground biological weapons lab where a nefarious security system will stop at nothing to contain an unfolding outbreak of the zombifying T-Virus. Co-starring out queer actor Michelle Rodriguez and featuring a score co-composed by Marilyn Manson, RESIDENT EVIL is ground zero for the relentless and completely bonkers action franchise starring perpetual badass and queer icon Milla Jovovich!

ABOUT QUEER HORROR:
QUEER HORROR is a bimonthly festival of genre works by queer artists, performers, and filmmakers questioning horror’s relation to queerness and what it means to identify with the monster. Maybe it’s the fact that queer people are so often relegated to shadows of otherness that the horror genre is more immediately relatable for us. We grew up with boogeymen. We’ve lived with boogeymen. Goblins and ghosts are a welcome escape from real-life monstrosities.
From the work of James Whale and John Waters to Patricia Highsmith and Clive Barker, horror has deeply impacted queer culture and sensibilities and QUEER HORROR asks why. QUEER HORROR is programmed and hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi and her human avatar Anthony Hudson, with artwork by resident artist Jason Edward Davis.
