Lesbian Horror

A list I've been compiling over the years depicting different forms of queer women in horror (with the occasional genre-blurring). The films listed feature both subtextual and blatant, textual queerness with a focus on contemporary horror. While I do think there is a difference between lesbian horror and lesbians in horror, this list contains both forms of representation.

Pandora's Box (1929)
Cat People (1942)

•The Birds (1963)
