Queer Horror

Straight Horror Movies by Title


Here's a list of horror movies that have queer content in them. Movies that are not expressly horror movie but contain supernatural creatures may be found in the lists of Queer Vampire, Queer Werewolf or Queer Ghost movies.

These are the items that have been found, a general description, and the general rating by the fans. (note: the ratings shows not only how good the story is, but also how well the horror or creatures are portrayed, and openly queer it is.  A really good non-gay item might score very low).

This page focuses on all straight horror items.
