A queer movie about the vacation rental from hell? Let me put on the popcorn!
Vacation rental services like Airbnb have revolutionized the way we travel. No longer are we relegated to staying at a pricey hotel whose rates fluctuate with the season’s change. No, we have options. But, have we ever really stopped to think about what we’re doing? We are willingly paying strangers to let us stay in their homes. As kids, we are taught to not talk to strangers and suddenly as adults, we joyfully spend our nights in the homes of people we know nothing about, just to save a few dollars. Kind of scary when you think about it, right? Well, that is just the premise that the new queer series Scare BNB puts before us.
Scare BNB is the first original, LGBTQ+ series to debut on the newly launched, queer network, DIVABoxOffice.tv. Comprised of five episodes, this limited series from the A Baker Production company will debut on February 28 with a two-part episode entitled “The Hosts”. An additional three-part episode called “The Double Booking” will begin streaming later this year.
In “The Hosts”, two lesbian couples—long-time friends since high school—are in high spirits when they arrive at a remote, rental cabin in the Tennessee woods for a much-needed vacation and to attend the ‘City of Rock’ Music Festival … But, upon their arrival, they find the overly attentive owners may want to host them to death….
Directed by Christin Baker (Secs, EXECS, Riley Parra, Merry & Gay, Christmas at the Ranch, I Hate New Years, Season of Love), the series stars Mandahla Rose (Forever Not Maybe, All About E), Sterling Victoria (Venus as a Boy; Charlie, Trevor and a Girl Savannah), Abisha Uhl (Electric Addiction, Loss Prevention, Girl/Girl Scene), Lily Richards (Honor, Erin, Twenty), Marvin E. West (Landscape With Invisible Hand, The Stranger) and Deborah Seidel.
