Spooky Queer Content To Entertain You This Halloween

24 Hours Of Spooky Queer Content To Entertain You This Halloween

I love Halloween – I love dressing up in costumes, eating candy, and watching scary films. I think I might even like it more as an adult than I did as a kid.

Grab your fave girl and hide behind the cushions.

One of the reasons is that Halloween has a definite essence of queerness around it, am I right?

This year, in honor of my favorite holiday, I’ve decided to line up 24 hours of spooky content featuring LGBTQ+ women for you delve into on Halloween, including films, books, TV episodes, and podcasts. My timings go from witching hour to witching hour, but if you’re the kind of person who needs sleep, then feel free to start whenever you wake up.

All Cheerleaders Die

If you’ve ever wondered what a modern, lesbian retelling of Rosemary’s Baby would look like, it’s right here. Heavily pregnant Leah is haunted by the death of her daughter and she begins to suspect that a supernatural force was responsible for Lyle’s death, but is this true or just a mother’s grief?

Alice Isn’t Dead

This is the gripping horror story about a truck driver on the search for her missing wife. I can’t say much more without major spoilers, but you should know that the characters are intriguing and nuanced. While you could easily spend the whole day binge-listening to this, I recommend that you start with episode one and savor your time with this podcast. P.S. It’s also getting made into a novel.


Women Who Kill

True crime podcasters Morgan and her ex-girlfriend Jean suspect that Morgan’s new girlfriend is a murderer, but are they getting too into their work?

When May was a child, she suffered trauma that left her with abandonment issues and an inability to form long-term relationships.

Hocus Pocus and the All-New Sequel

White is for Witching

In this unsettling novel, Miranda has disappeared and three separate narratives of the events leading up to her disappearance are presented; one from her twin brother, one from her girlfriend Ore, and one from the house. Prepare to wrack your brain to find out how and why Miranda went missing.

The Haunting

Here we’ll take a break from the violence to enjoy an erotic horror film, where a love triangle emerges between a doctor specialising in sleep research (Susan Sarandon) and a vampire couple (Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie) and results in a sex scene between the female leads.

Modern Vampires

This 90s horror comedy has Dr. Val Helsing hiring “crack smoking gang-bangers”, an actual quote from the IMDB page, to hunt the vampires who are secretly controlling the USA. It’s fairly out-there, but then it was released in 1999. It also features a make-out scene between Natasha Lyonne and Natasha Gregson Wagner.
