20 Gay Horror Movies to Stream This Halloween!

Happy October, gay movie lovers! It’s time to light a few candles, turn down the lights, open up the windows to let in that fresh autumn breeze and enjoy some seasonally-appropriate scary movies! Here’s a list of 20 Gay Horror Movies You Can Watch RIGHT NOW at TLAgay!

B&B
Handsome gay Londoners Marc and Fred (Tom Bateman and Sean Teale) plan a weekend of mischief, returning to bait the owner of a remote B&B who they successfully sued a year prior for not allowing them to share a bed. Events take a deadly turn when another guest, with far more sinister intentions, arrives. Marc and Fred’s weekend of fun turns into a suspenseful battle for survival in this smart, comedic dark thriller. B&B will keep you guessing until the end!

Drink Me
James and Andy (Emmett Friel and Darren Munn) seem to have everything they ever dreamed of… but things are about to change. When Andy loses his job, they decide to take in a handsome stranger named Sebastian (Chris Ellis-Stanton). Nightmares come to life as Andy realizes that Sebastian is hiding a dark secret. Could Sebastian be the killer stalking the streets of their neighborhood? A classically sexy horror-thriller, Drink Me is highly erotic, featuring three hot lead actors.

 

Shadowlands
Directed by Charlie David, Shadowlands tells three stories exploring the erotic and the macabre. The film begins in 1928 with a plastic surgeon hell-bent on human perfection. Fast forward to 1951 where we meet a gay military couple exploring the idea of opening their relationship while on a remote camping trip… where they meet a mysterious stranger. The stories conclude in 2018 when a painter, mourning the loss of his lover, becomes obsessed with re-creating him in his art.

Rapture in Blue
Ryder Houston’s Rapture in Blue follows a young man’s quest through flickering neon and hazy noir shadows to find his true self. After Jason (Bryce Lederer) tries to use his childhood home for a steamy rendezvous with his girlfriend, he discovers it newly occupied by the smoldering Sebastian (Tanner Garmon). Wracked with desires he’s long tried to ignore, a growing sense of unease permeates his life. He soon realizes he needs to confront the madness consuming him.

Bloody Knuckles
Travis (Adam Boys), an underground comic book artist, lost his hand to a thin-skinned Chinatown crime lord. Drinking way too much, Travis wallows in post-severed hand depression. But when his hand comes back to him, seemingly alive, slightly rotted and determined to exact revenge, they team up with a masked gay S&M superhero to rid the city of evil and criminality once and for all. Bloody Knuckles is a deliriously offensive, gory and happily un-PC horror-comedy.

The Year I Lost My Mind
From prolific director Tor Iben comes The Year I Lost My Mind, a titillating thriller about a lonely young man who becomes dangerously obsessed with a mysterious stranger. After encountering him during a burglary, Tom (Alexander Tsypilev) begins stalking and antagonizing the attractive young Lars (Julien Lickert). When Lars finds out about Tom’s intentions, he manages to turn the tables on him, leading to a shocking confrontation (and a whole lot of sexual tension).

Black Briefs
Curated by writer/director Rob Williams, Black Briefs features six short films with horror-adjacent stories and themes. Highlights include Hong Khaou’s Spring, about a young man who meets up with a stranger for some exploratory sadomasochistic sex; and Jack Plotnick’s Video Night, in which a group of filmmakers discover something unexpected in their footage. Our favorite is Greg Ivan Smith’s Remission, following a man, alone in a secluded cabin, haunted by a terrifying figure.

Kissing Darkness
A group of college boys, bored with the everyday “gay life” of LA, decide to skip pride weekend. Instead, they gear up for a camping trip in the woods. Quickly into their trip, the boys venture into a game that ultimately unleashes the vengeful spirit of a local legend known as “Malice Valeria.” Overcome by her deadly plan of tainted love and her thirst to take back what was lost long ago, the boys must now band together before they fall victim to the poisons of a broken heart.

Confessions
Dark, intense, funny, romantic and often shocking, this genre-hopping anthology film from director Mark Bessenger features sixteen monologues from different gay men. “The Actor,” “The Wrestler,” “The Porn Agent,” “The Beard,” “The Sweet Sixteen” and many more share their deepest secrets and most taboo desires (some of which are truly horrific) in quick, eye-popping vignettes. Don’t miss this unique, endlessly fun and achingly sexy experimental film.

Rift
Gunnar (Björn Stefánsson) is woken up late at night by a call from his former boyfriend, Einar (Sigurður Þór Óskarsson), who is staying at his summer home in a remote part of Iceland. When Einar confesses that he has the feeling he isn’t alone, Gunnar drives out to join him. As the two work to navigate their broken relationship, they’re seemingly being stalked by a mysterious stranger lurking outside the cabin. Rift is a chilling relationship drama and psychological thriller.

Innocent Boy
Off a lonely Texas highway, a group of hustlers prey on the desperados who come to their backwoods home for sex and drugs. When a murderous cowboy (Kamy D. Bruder) rolls into town, Penny (Unique Jenkins), a young trans boy, is pushed to survive the night and change his less-then-ideal life in the process. An expertly-crafted short film debut from writer-director Brock Cravy, Innocent Boy is a wild, colorful, shocking and original vision of queer horror.

Alpha Delta Zatan
Starring an all-male of cast of underwear-clad up-and-comers, Alpha Delta Zatan delivers audiences a fun, sensual spin on the “sorority massacre” sub-genre of horror flicks. A goofy but noble young college kid is pleasantly surprised to learn that he’s been invited to join his school’s most exclusive fraternity house. Unfortunately, he’s about to discover that there is something far scarier than hazing rituals in his future… especially once the masked, knife-wielding slasher shows up.

The Skin of the Teeth
When Josef (Pascal Arquimedes) arrives at John’s (Donal Brophy) apartment for a date, their prickly energy slowly gives way to genuine chemistry. But after swallowing a pill with mind-bending effects, Josef quickly slides helplessly down a rabbit hole of temporal sleight-of-hand, plunged into a surreal interrogation of everything he is. A critically-acclaimed hit at film festivals, director Matthew Wollin’s heady thriller drew comparisons to Jordan Peele’s Get Out.

Into the Lion’s Den
Bored with the West Hollywood gay scene, three friends embark on a cross-country road trip. Fate brings them to “The Lion’s Den”, a secluded backwoods bar where not everything is as it seems. Someone at the bar is watching them and setting a deadly trap. Now, as closing time draws near, a night of unspeakable horrors begins. Jesse Archer and Ronnie Kroell headline this bold, uncompromising thriller that takes some sinister twists and turns.

Bite Marks
Hunky truck driver Brewster (Benjamin Lutz) takes over his missing brother’s delivery of coffins. On the way to his funeral home destination, he picks up some hitchhikers: the cute and wise-cracking Cary (Windham Beacham) and his smitten but tense boyfriend Vogel (David Alanson). When a faulty GPS leads them to a deserted junkyard, an assortment of blood-thirty monsters begin to attack! Now, the mismatched trio must try to survive until dawn in this gory gay indie.

Devil’s Path
Two strangers (Stephen Twardokus and JD Scalzo) meet in a wilderness park where gay men cruise for sex. What seems like an innocent and random meeting quickly descends into a horrific nightmare. With recent disappearances, the two men find themselves in a deadly game of cat and mouse. As they flee further into the woods to escape the danger, they begin to understand that the greatest danger of all may be closer than either of them realize.

Tooth 4 Tooth
Beginning with a confrontation between religious zealots and drag performers, this stylish short horror film from director Alice Maio Mackay examines both literal and figurative monsters. While investigating the morder of a friend, a drag artist and an activist film themselves caught in an old war between those who feed on the blood of the fearful and those who feed on the blood of the hateful. Tooth 4 Tooth is a clever horror flick that marks the arrival of a promising filmmaker.

A Closer Walk with Thee
Jordan (AJ Knight) is a good Christian kid, except that he’s starting to have impure sexual thoughts about his close friend and fellow missionary Eli (Gregory Shelby). Eli, a fledgling exorcist, suggests that a demonic possession might be causing these feelings. Indeed, Jordan begins to enact signs of possession, prompting Eli to take action. What begins as a ritualistic method of trying to save their friendship quickly spirals out of control and descends into darkness and violence.

Der Samurai
Jakob (Michel Diercks) is a policeman in a village deep in the woods, where little happens until the arrival of a mysterious wolf starts causing havoc. Working the night shift, Jakob is tracking the wolf… only to discover that the lupine lurker is actually a man clad only in lipstick and a ladies’ slip, and toting a samurai sword that he uses to lop off the heads of the townspeople. Jakob and the samurai seem to share a bond, and as the night gets darker, events get even weirder.

Knife+Heart
This sexually explicit throwback thriller from visionary writer-director Yann Gonzalez is a must-see. Vanessa Paradis stars as Anne, a savvy French woman who produces third-rate gay porn. When one of her actors is brutally murdered, Anne gets caught up in a strange investigation that turns her life upside-down. Shot on 35mm and featuring a killer retro score, Knife+Heart is an ultra-stylish and blood-soaked ode to 1970s-era Brian De Palma, Dario Argento and William Friedkin.

The lost queer comedy cult classic Butch Camp is coming soon to Blu-ray!

The “not-very-P.C.” 1996 romantic comedy Butch Camp turns the tables on sexual politics as the main characters struggle to find love and get along in an intolerant world.

Comedian Judy Tenuta stars as a sex goddess – turned neo-facist commandant – who runs the “Butch Camp,” a hysterical pseudo-S&M-style boot camp training center for gay men to learn how to act macho. Paul Denniston plays the sensitive twenty-something gay man who has been put down one too many times.

This new special edition Blu-ray offers up a brand-new HD master from the only surviving 35mm film source – taken from writer/director Alessandro de Gaetano‘s own library. This rare oddity – a classic gay indie comedy of the ’90s – has never looked better!

Just Came Out: Everything at Once

A seductive documentary, Everything at Once profiles Paco Moyano and Manolo Rodriguez, two Catalan photographers from the outskirts of Barcelona who have been together for thirty years.

With great compassion and understanding, Paco and Manolo build an intimate relationship with their subjects, capturing not only their bare bodies but their inhibitions as well. In the end, they reveal just as much about themselves as they do the nude men in front of their cameras.

Trailer Alert: One in a Thousand

When Iris (Sofia Cabrera) meets Renata (Ana Carolina Garcia) in the projects of One Thousand in Argentina, she is immediately and inexplicably attracted to her, but Renata’s presence also makes plenty of people uncomfortable… and prejudices begin to grow.

Iris will have to overcome her fears and struggle with her insecurities in order to experience first love. The two girls and their small group of friends are the queer resistance in a hostile environment where desire adapts many forms in the darkness, and gossip can turn into a hateful weapon.

A touching, engaging and intelligent new film from writer-director Clarisa Navas, One in a Thousand uses a talented group of young, non-professional actors to tell an inspiring story of standing for your truth, no matter who tries to shut you down.

Gypsy 83
Two goth misfits living in Sandusky, Ohio – musician Gypsy Vale (Sara Rue) and her younger queer protégé Clive Webb (Kett Turton) – decide to run away together to New York City so Gypsy can participate in an epic Stevie Nicks-cosplay event called “Night of 1,000 Stevies.” Along the way, they encounter other misfits that pave the way to their salvation, including washed-up singer Bambi LeBleau (played by the late, great Karen Black) and a confused Amish runaway (Anson Scoville). An indie hit when it was first released in 2001, Gypsy 83 is a touching queer coming-of-age flick from writer-director Todd Stephens (the filmmaker behind Another Gay Movie, Edge of Seventeen and the upcoming Swan Song). The film was recently remastered by the cult film label Altered Innocence.

 

No Hard Feelings
Parvis (Benjamin Radjaipour), the son of exiled Iranians, copes with life in his small hometown by indulging himself with pop culture, Grindr dates and raves. After being caught shoplifting, he is sentenced to community service at a refugee shelter where he meets siblings Banafshe and Amon (Banafshe Hourmazdi and Eidin Jalali), who have recently fled Iran. As a romantic attraction between Parvis and Amon grows, the fragile relationship between the three is put to the test. They find and lose each other throughout a summer of fleeting youth, an intense first love, an attempt at a joint future and the stark realization that, in Germany, they are not entirely equal. A critically-acclaimed new romantic drama, No Hard Feelings won the coveted Teddy Award for Best Queer Feature Film.

 

Cousins
Lucas (Paulo Sousa) lives with his religious Aunt Lourdes (Juliana Zancanaro) in a quiet, remote country town in Brazil. With nothing much else going on, the youngster spends his days gardening, playing keyboard and trying to avoid his aunt’s meddling attempts to set him up with the local girls. His life, however, is about to change drastically. He finds himself unexpectedly sharing a roof with Mario (played by screenwriter and co-director Thiago Cazado), a trouble-making distant cousin who has recently been released from prison. When pious Aunt Lourdes leaves for a religious retreat, Lucas and Mario become friends… and much, much more. Cousins is writer-director team Mauro Carvalho and Thiago Cazado’s second feature film following their debut romance About Us.

 

Socrates
When his mother dies, fifteen-year-old Socrates (Christian Malheiros) quickly finds his already tenuous life in the favelas of São Paulo pushed to the brink. Guided by an often-explosive temper, the volatile youth is desperate to find a job in order to keep the rent paid and to stay off the streets. When he crosses paths with the mysterious Maicon (Tales Ordakji), whose sketchy offer of quick cash takes Socrates to a wholly unexpected place, the young orphan must decide where his life is headed, what kind of person he is and who he will become. All the while, he’s desperately searching for his mother’s remains in order to say goodbye one last time. An astonishing film from writer-director Alexandre Moratto, Socrates won the coveted Someone to Watch Award at the 2019 Film Independent Spirit Awards.

 

Heartstone
In a remote fishing village in Iceland, teens Thor and Christian (Baldur Einarsson and Blaer Hinriksson) experience a turbulent summer. As one of them tries to win the heart of a girl, the other discovers that he is harboring romantic feelings for his best friend. When summer ends and the harsh nature of Iceland takes back its rights, it’s time to leave the playground and face adulthood for the first time. A gorgeous, emotional coming-of-age film, Heartstone won over critics all over the world. The Playlist said it’s “beautifully shot, touchingly performed and delivered with a thrillingly atmospheric sense of place.” And Screen International said it’s “affecting as well as perceptive in how it intimately depicts the blossoming of youth… just the right amount of confidence, compassion and clear-eyed style.”
