I’ve compiled a list of all the homo horror films I’ve discovered—men and monsters, gays and gore, slasher studs, and screaming queens galore! If there are any other films I’ve missed, let me know. Included are links to any of the films for which I’ve written a Boys, Bears & Scares blog. For “straight” movies with hints of gay in them, see the die, gay guy, die page.
