Queer Horror! 6 Queer Horror Films.

Queer Horror!

Here are 6 queer films that explore queerness, independence, sex, and relationships… while playing within the realm of the horror genre or leaning towards it. I love that whenever queer films decide to play away from the drama and comedy genres, they tend to jump to horror, which allows for more exciting ideas and themes to be explored, I think. Some films go full on horror and become full on slashers, while some become awesome punk wave, others move towards the cult-ish side but at their core, they’re queer.

Thelma

Thelma, a shy girl who belongs to a religious family, develops feelings for another student, Anja. Later, she discovers about her powers that could put the people around her in danger.

Closet Monster

An artistic teenager leaves his hometown, hoping to escape lingering and traumatic childhood memories and confront the monster lying within him.

Spiral

A same-sex couple move to a small town so they can enjoy a better quality of life and raise their 16-year-old daughter with the best social values. However, nothing is as it seems in their picturesque neighbourhood.

Rift

Two men in a secluded cabin are haunted by their dead relationship.

What Keeps You Alive

Jackie and Jules are a couple celebrating their first anniversary at a secluded cabin in the woods belonging to Jackie's family. From the moment they arrive, something changes in Jules' normally loving wife, as Jackie begins to reveal a previously unknown dark side -- all building up to a shocking revelation that will pit Jules against the woman she loves in a terrifying fight to survive.

Knife + Heart

In the summer of 1979, Paris-based filmmaker Anne is a producer of third-rate gay porn. After her editor and lover Lois leaves her, she tries to win her back by shooting her most ambitious film yet with her trusted, flamboyant sidekick Archibald. But when one of her actors is brutally murdered, Anne gets caught up in a strange investigation that turns her life upside-down.
