Screen Rant is excited to share a first look at the poster for the new horror-comedy, Big Easy Queens. Set in New Orleans, but filmed entirely in Florida in spite of and indeed in reaction to the anti-drag movements of Governor Ron DeSantis, Big Easy Queens is a musical extravaganza where drag meets zombies, in a film that’s a love letter to the LGBTQ+ community of the state. From Writer Robert Leleux and Director Erynn Dalton, the film stars Eric Swanson, Benjamin Shaevitz, and Alexander Zenoz. Big Easy Queens has been making the film festival circuit and is next expected to premiere at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival on November 16th.

Minnie Bouvèé (Swanson) is a Mob Queen in the French Quarter of New Orleans with an ongoing rivalry with arch-nemesis Poodle Mackenzie (Jennifer McClain). After Minnie has Poodle’s crew brutally slaughtered, she’s ready for the fallout. What she doesn’t expect is to be stalked by a shadowy figure who has a penchant for leaving behind gardenias and worrisome notes. Minnie finds she must uncover the truth: whether this is Poodle’s revenge or just her own estranged sister’s strange way of saying hi when she reappears in Minnie’s life after stealing Minnie’s man.
