Here’s a list of 30 Scary Gay Movies You Can Watch RIGHT NOW at TLAgay!
Alpha Delta Zatan
Starring an all-male of cast of staggeringly attractive, underwear-clad up-and-comers (including Jeremy Winter, Jake Kidwell, Connor Field, Drake Malone and R&B singer Eleaze), 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. His new frat brothers seem to keep going missing. In this house, no one can be trusted and no one is safe… especially one the masked, knife-wielding slasher shows up. Funny, sexy and scary, this new low-budget horror treat is a new TLA Exclusive on DVD and Blu-ray. It’s also available to stream right now.
“They made their bed… now they’ll have to die in it.” B&B earned a whole lot of praise from LGBT horror/thriller/suspense fans at festivals and now it’s available to watch at TLAgay! Lovers Marc and Fred (Tom Bateman and Sean Teale) initiated a major legal battle after they were refused a double bed at a remote Christian guest house. They came out of their court case victorious and now they’re back at the establishment to claim their conjugal rights. Triumph, however, quickly turns to terror when a scary Russian neo-Nazi also checks in. Their weekend of celebratory fun soon becomes a bloody battle for survival. B&B is a whip-smart and brutally funny dark comedy-thriller that has earned rave reviews from critics – some of whom have even compared it to the work of Alfred Hitchcock. The Hollywood Outsiders, specifically, called it “a film Alfred Hitchcock would be proud of.” The Horror Society said it’s “frickin’ fantastic and a trailblazer for LGBT cinema.”
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). The couple’s relationship is on the rocks (though that doesn’t stop them from some hot-and-noisy gas station toilet sex, which ignites the repressed homo in the voyeuristic Brewster). With dicks firmly back in pants, trouble descends on the threesome when a faulty GPS leads them into a deserted junkyard – where the truck promptly breaks down. Normally, this would not be a terrible situation (more hot sex, anyone?), but this night is far from normal – as an assortment of blood-thirty vampires begin to attack! Now, the mismatched trio must fend off the marauding monsters and try to survive until dawn. With plenty of witty asides, sexy encounters and flesh-tearing scenes, this low budget gem delivers the gory goods.
Curated by prolific writer/director Rob Williams (Make the Yuletide Gay, Shared Rooms) for his distribution label Guest House Films, Black Briefs features six award-winning short films with pretty dark, horror or horror-adjacent stories and themes. When it comes to short film compilations, there is always something to recommend. If you don’t like the first one, chances are good there is a short just around the corner that you’re going to appreciate more. In Black Briefs, we really like Hong Khaou‘s steamy Spring, about a young man who meets up with a stranger for a little exploratory sadomasochistic sex; and Jack Plotnick‘s Video Night, in which a group of filmmaker buddies discover something unexpected in their raw footage. Our favorite, though, is Greg Ivan Smith‘s Remission. A man, all alone in a secluded cabin, awaiting the results of a serious medical test, is haunted by a terrifying presence. It’s genuinely chilling and it’s one of those rare movies that can create dread and unease even in its scenes set during the daytime.
Canada, our well-heeled neighbor to the north, is not known for cinematic carnage or gore comedies, but first time director Matt O. aims to shake things up with Bloody Knuckles, a deliriously offensive, gory and happily un-PC horror-comedy. Travis (Adam Boys), an underground comic book artist with a penchant for obscene caricatures, upsets a thin-skinned crime lord, who responds by cutting off the young mans hand. A despondent and now alcoholic Travis wallows in post-severed hand depression. Will criminality reign supreme? Will Travis give up his acerbic pen and live alone as a bitter one-handed man? Not if the slightly rotted hand, now alive and determined to exact revenge, teems up with his former body and a masked, S&M-loving gay superhero to rid the city of evil!
Mind-altering and terrorizing, the new twelve-minute short film Class A is set in modern-day New York City… but the ultimate setting is another world in which our LGBTQ addicts, Jenny (Krystal Joy Brown), Dan (Kieran Mulcare) and Brad (played by writer/director Cameron Moir), enter when interacting with their drug of choice. The film focuses on three drugs in particular, each personified by an actor: Cocaine (Alexander Quiroga), Heroin (Pooya Mohseni) and Crystal Meth (Michael Cavadias). Each drug has its own landscape in which the addict enters and cannot escape until the drug leaves them. Heroin, being a vast black eternal comb, Coke, a stark, white, fast moving space and Crystal Meth, a red, steamy dungeon. Clever and thought-provoking, we can’t wait to see what this director does next.
Jakob (Michel Diercks) is a policeman in a village deep in the woods, where little happens… until the arrival of a mysterious wolf that is 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, including Jakob’s tormentors. Jakob and the transvestite samurai seem to share a bond, and as the night gets darker, events get even weirder. Unlike any other horror film you’re likely to see, Der Samurai is a German mind-bender about shape-shifting cross-dressers, bloody decapitations, repressed sexual desires and small town life. It’s a surreal mix of dark comedy and eerie creep-out fun that recalls David Lynch and pays homage to, while often improving upon, the synth-soundtrack-packed horror classics of the 1980s.
In the early 1990s, 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 and attacks, the two men soon find themselves in the terrifying position of being the next victims 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. Will these two strangers be able to work together to defeat the darkness that has settled in on Devil’s Path? Or will their own secrets and lies lead them to be the next two missing persons in this perilous park? This riveting new gay thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat.
James and Andy (Emmett Friel and Darren Munn), a sexy gay couple, seem to have everything they ever dreamed of… but things are about to change. Andy loses his job and they 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? Yes. Yes he could. And… also… (spoiler alert)… he’s a vampire. While it’s maybe not to most skillfully directed (or acted) movie in the bunch, Drink Me has other… hmmm… let’s call them charms… to recommend it. The three British leads, Emmett Friel, Darren Munn and Chris Ellis Stanton, are all very easy on the eyes and this movie is absolutely packed with graphic male nudity and explicit gay sex scenes. It’s sensual and erotic above all else (for better or worse).
High school students Damien and Pierre (Martin Loizillon and Pierre Moure), both from wealthy families, have the world at their fingertips… yet they plan and carry out the murder of an unknown woman they have previously only spotted on the street. The police are at a loss, confused by this murder without motive. Zoe (Julie-Marie Parmentier), an optician in the neighborhood, who is feeling more and more moved by this inexplicable murder, bumps into the pair by chance. But this chance fleeting encounter reveals inside her a growing and mysterious desire. Although scared – she could easily be the next victim – her erotic attraction for the duo goes beyond that. It gives her a chance to find a way out of the loveless rut that her life has ended up in. Meanwhile, Damien and Pierre, thinking no one will catch them, embark on a journey deep within their pasts. Inspired by the notorious Leopold and Loeb case from the 1920s, Fever is an enthralling, subtly homoerotic thriller.
Fraternity Massacre at Hell Island
What starts out as a fun and adventurous fraternity pledge night turns nightmarish when a killer clown terrorizes the brothers and pledges of Zeta Alpha Rho, killing them off one-by-one! Locked down on a haunted gloomy island with no escape route, the ZAP pledges mysteriously disappear as the maniacal clown reaps personal revenge on the unsuspecting frat boys. Homophobia abounds as frat pledge Jack Jones (Tyler Farrell) must quickly formulate a plan to stop the devious clown, save his fraternity brothers… and find the courage to come out of the closet before the sun rises on this doomed “Hell Island.” There have been countless “Sorority Massacre” movies since the late ’70s/early ’80s. It’s about time that frat boys got in on the gory action. Fraternity Massacre at Hell Island is an intentionally campy, straight-to-video lark with little in the way of actual scares, but it’s pretty hard to resist the corny charms of horror flick about scorching hot closet-cases failing to keep their simmering homoerotic urges a secret.
I Was a Teenage Werebear
Sean Paul Lockhart stars as Ricky – a cute, Letterman jacket-wearing 1950s schoolboy who isn’t quite content getting into beach-side heavy petting with “girlfriend” Peggy Lou (Gabby West). He secretly has his eyes on Talon (Anton Troy), the school’s greaser bad-boy! Little does Ricky know that Talon and his fellow leather buddies hide a secret of their own: they are werebears! They may look like cute teen boys, but they can turn into bulky, hairy, bearded beasts in the blink of an eye. With gorgeous twink flesh on display, non-stop homoerotic action, hysterically funny supporting performances from Insidious series star Lin Shaye (as a gay-friendly clairvoyant) and writer/director Tim Sullivan himself (as a randy coach with a thing for his budding young charges) and numerous over-the-top musical numbers, I Was a Teenage Werebear is a delightfully campy must-see. A short film, it runs roughly 30 minutes, but the DVD is packed with rare, completely exclusive special features – including promo spots, trailers, deleted scenes, music videos, behind-the-scenes docs and more!
This one also stars TLA fan favorite Sean Paul Lockhart (known to porn aficionados as the legendary Brent Corrigan) alongside a bunch of similarly stunning hot young dudes! Kissing Darkness follows a group of college boys who, bored with the everyday “gay life” of LA, decide to skip pride weekend. Instead, they gear up for a camping trip in the woods. Maybe we should all just commit to staying in the city. 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. Directed by James Townsend (Sideline Secrets, Unsolved Suburbia), this unbelievably sexy new vampire flick with softcore erotic elements doesn’t skimp on the blood or the beautiful, scantily clad young beefcake.
Lose Your Head
Lured by Berlin’s reputation as city with a pulsating night life, young Luis (Fernando Tielve) leaves his boyfriend behind to travel there – eager to indulge in drugs, sex, partying, music and mindless fun. Somewhat innocent and certainly naïve, wide-eyed Luis is quickly sucked into the dizzying whirlwind of the club scene where he meets up with a strange bohemian crowd, does coke and hooks up with Viktor (Marko Mandic), a domineering Ukrainian with his own set of hidden problems. After he meets a couple looking for a missing man who bears a striking resemblance to him, and after Viktor becomes more menacing, Luis gives in to paranoia as a sense of deteriorating reality begins to overcome him. Lose Your Head is a complex, “Alice in Wonderland”-like tale of a young man methodically driven out of control.
Memory of the Dead
Reminiscent of the finest work of Dario Argento with its spectacular set pieces, Valentin Javier Diment‘s Memory Of The Dead mixes eye-popping visuals with wicked black comedy to create one of the most memorable supernatural shockers in years. A recent widow (Lola Bethet) gathers her husband’s closet friends at her country home for a memorial service, but her intentions aren’t quite as noble as they seem. Soon, the gathered mourners are beset by an onslaught of ghosts and demons from their pasts. Grieving is hard, but surviving the night is even harder. Packed with gore, terror, tongue-in-cheek humor and a healthy dose of sex, Memory Of The Dead is a must see for fans of outrageous international horror.
Monsters & Men
From award-winning directors Francis Luta, Blake Mawson and Dominic Poliquin comes a collection of edgy and suspenseful gay short films exploring the hidden monsters inside all of us. In PYOTR495, a 16-year-old Russian boy meets someone from a hook-up app and ends up in a dangerous situation. Attention of Men follows an aspiring writer who collects money for having sex with a complete stranger. Wolf concerns an unusual love triangle driven by uncontrollable urges.

Adult film sensation Grayson Lange stars with newcomer Daniel Jensen, in his first gay erotic scenes (on or off camera)! Also starring Babaloo Studios favorites Addison Graham and Harper Stevenson. This mystery/horror flick is packed to the brim with hot twinks who aren’t afraid to shed their clothes for the camera’s gaze.
Remington and the Curse of the Zombadings
The curse of a drag queen who Remington mocked when he was child has started to turn this ladies-man gay overnight. If he can’t convince a straight guy to switch orientations with him before the bell tolls, he will be gay forever. This wouldn’t be such a terrible thing but there’s an anti-gay serial killer on the loose… oh… and also some gnarly drag-queen zombies invading from all corners. Remington and his rag tag group of friends will only be able to survive the night if they can learn to be true to themselves. Follow Remington as he sashays into an adventure and encounters mystery curses, killers and gay zombies roaming the streets in this campy and way, way, way over-the-top horror-comedy curio. Remington and the Curse of the Zombadings isn’t well-known in the United States, but it was actually a really big hit in the Philippines when it first came out in theaters.
Paying homage to classic art-house horror films like Robert Wise’s The Haunting and Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now, Rift is an enticing, well-acted and expertly-directed mystery-thriller from Iceland that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Gunnar receives a strange phone call from his ex-boyfriend, Einar, months after they parted ways. Einar sounds distraught, like he’s about to do something terrible to himself, so Gunnar drives to the secluded cabin where Einar is holed up and soon discovers there is more going on than he imagined. As the two come to terms with their broken relationship, some other person seems to be lurking outside the cabin, wanting to get inside. Eerie and stylishly crafted, Rift proved itself a big hit at film fests – not just LGBT festivals, but general horror film festivals as well, where it has earned rave reviews.
Paul, a young escort, has no problem selling his body to the highest bidder, as long as they also take his other unusual gift – that is, when having sex, Paul has visions of his long-lost twin brother, visions that are eerily transferred to the clients. When not tricking, the unhappy Paul searches for his brother who was separated from him when he was a young child. Through a series of chance encounters Paul meets Baxter, a porn director wanting to break into cross-over films. Since Paul thinks his brother may be working in the gay porn industry, he agrees to do act if Baxter in turn helps him find his brother. But his entry into this world becomes more and more intense and potentially dangerous as sexual excesses, nightmarish visions and the possible redemptive powers of love overwhelm him. Seeing Heaven is a captivating, low-budget commentary on the British escort/porn industry as well as a 21st century variation of Dorian Gray.
Directed by Charlie David, Shadowlands is a sexy new anthology film that features three different stories that exploring the erotic and the macabre. The series begins in 1928 with Alex, a plastic surgeon hell-bent on perfection, hosting a house party with an assortment of colorful guests. Amid romantic misfires it becomes apparent that the only person Alex is interested in is himself. 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 creating a realistic painting of him. The resulting piece is so beautiful and life-like that he is drawn under its dangerous spell.
The Skin of the Teeth
Get Out meets Grindr in The Skin of the Teeth, a sinister new drama-thriller from writer-director Matthew Wollin, who evokes the feel of a contemporary film noir. When Josef (Pascal Arquimedes) arrives at John’s (Donal Brophy) apartment for a date, their prickly energy slowly gives way to an unusual and genuine chemistry. But after Josef swallows a pill with unclear effects, the night starts to take a shocking turn. Josef is suddenly plunged into a surreal world where he is forced into a literal and figurative interrogation of just who and what he is. While evoking the surreal work of David Lynch, this wild new film examines race, sex, love and identity in a mind-bending way – and the lead performance will keep you holding your breath from beginning to end.
A chance internet encounter brings the cute, affable Caleb (Sean Paul Lockhart – coming up for a third time on this list) and the hunky, older Jeremy (writer/director Rob Moretti) together. Jeremy seduces the vulnerable young man with compliments, attention and above all, the promise of a secure relationship. Caleb, mentally abused as a child by his emotionally erratic mother and now wary of romance, succumbs to Jeremy’s advances and a sensual affair begins. But beneath Caleb’s shy smile and innocent eyes lies a troubled young man, and Jeremy harbors his own dark secrets and lies which, together, threaten the relationship. This budding love affair soon triggers an unexpected chain of events as trust is violated, tempers are unleashed and Caleb’s destructive side takes over.

At school, Caleb meets the stranger, Jasin, and the two share is an instant connection. The brood, however is short on time. Jasin needs to convince his new crush Caleb that eternity as a vampire can be a very sweet life. Vampire Boys is the pretty much that gay man’s answer to The Twilight Saga.
The Year I Lost My Mind
From prolific German director Tor Iben (Love Kills, The Passenger, The Visitor) comes a brand-new thriller about a lonely young man who becomes dangerously obsessed with a perfect stranger. After encountering him during a burglary, Tom (Alexander Tsypilev), a disturbed young man prone to wearing creepy masks that obscure his quite handsome features, begins stalking and antagonizing the attractive young Lars (Julien Lickert). When Lars finally discovers that Tom is on his tail, and that his intentions may be somewhat sinister, he manages to turn the tables on him, leading to a unexpected game of cat-and-mouse and a shocking confrontation. Sexy and unsettling in equal measure, the tension is palpable in this stylish drama with shades of Alfred Hitchcock.
