Queer Horror



I'm pretty new to the zine phenomena, so it was a bit of an eye opener discovering some of the zines that exist out there and how specifically some of the zines focus on a subject. Here is a summary of the zines that I have found that include or focus on queer horror content.


The Haunts of Queers - HomoeroticonNot only is this one of the better zines I have found, but it also is the only one that focuses exclusively on queer horror. Though violent and somewhat disturbing, the writing and artwork are very impressive. The subjects of this zine range from the silly, such as in the single-panel "Helldresser" comic which features the official hairdresser of movie monsters, to the intense, such as comparing vampires to those who knowingly spread AIDS.

As of 6/15/00 only 4 issues of this have been created.

Bright Lights Film JournalBright Lights Film Journal

Dark Moon Sisters

A woman-oriented vampire zine. Occasionally contains lesbian vampire content.

Prisoners of the NightPrisoners of the Night

Technically a magazine, this is 'an Adult Anthology of Seduction, Mystery, Erotica and VAMPIRISM '. Sexuality is less important in this magazine than sensuality and eroticism. Almost every magazine contains some same-sex content, but no magazine is exclusively queer. Very well put together and professional.
