Dracula’s Daughter (1936)
The screen’s first lesbian vampire. Ms. Dracula is drawn to young women and tries to get a big strong psychiatrist to cure her. That subtext is almost text. The tag line was “she gives you that weird feeling!”
The Uninvited (1944)
A spooky haunted house story with subtle lesbian subtext. Martin Scorsese and Guillermo del Toro both said it was scary, though!
The Haunting (1963)
Classic haunted house movie featuring a lesbian character, based on a novel by Shirley Jackson. Appears on all kinds of “best of” lists.
Let’s Scare Jessica to Death (1971)
A subdued cult favourite about struggling with insanity on a New England hippie farm, featuring a queer woman who might be a vampire.
Dr Jekyll and Sister Hyde (1971)
What if Dr Jekyll’s alter ego was a woman? I haven’t seen this and it seems highly likely that it is a transphobic, misogynist trainwreck, but I am curious.
The Hunger (1983)
Ridiculous vampire movie featuring real life bisexual David Bowie, a lot of blowing curtains, and sex scenes between Susan Sarandon and Catherine Deneuve.
Art-horror movie with three intercut plots, one of which involves gay love in prison, and another where a mad scientist causes an AIDS-like STD epidemic.
Brand Upon The Brain! (2006)
This isn’t quite a horror movie, but it is set in an isolated family-run orphanage that harvests brain nectar from children. A brother and a sister both fall for the same girl in boy drag.
