Where to Stream Scary Lesbian Stories All October Long

Lesbian horror movies to stream 2020

Spooky season is upon us, witches and ghouls. We know you’ve already watched Hocus Pocus 18 times. So we went out and found some movies and shows featuring bisexuals and lesbians for you to watch all October long.

Ratched

Are you fan of American Horror Story? Do you stan Sarah Paulson? Can you handle some gore? Ratched just might be the show for you. The Netflix original was inspired by the novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and serves as an origin story for Nurse Ratched, played by Paulson. And to sweeten the pot, Cynthia Nixon plays Paulson’s love interest. Still not convinced? Check out what we had to say about it. Ratched is streaming in Netflix.

Monsterland

The Hulu original features hour long episodes set in different parts of the US with a different monster in each episode. The fifth of the eight episodes stars Taylor Schilling and Roberta Colindrez as a married couple wherein Schilling’s character has bipolar disorder. A word of caution, Schilling’s character does commit suicide, causing her to be the “monster” of this episode. So if you’re not a fan of that, this may be a skip for you. Monsterland is streaming on Hulu.

The Haunting of Hill House

This Netflix original series was loosely based on the Shirley Jackson novel of the same name. If you like ghost stories, this might just be the show for you. The plot alternates between two timelines and follows the lives of five siblings whose paranormal experiences at Hill House continue to haunt them into adulthood. Of those five siblings, Theodora “Theo” Crain is a lesbian. Theo has the ability to experience psychic knowledge about people when she touches them. Just lesbian things. The Haunting of Hill House is streaming on Netflix.

The Haunting of Bly Manor

Done with Hill House? Get in the U-Haul and head on over to Bly Manor. The Haunting of Bly Manor is the follow up series to Hill House and is loosely based on Henry James’s novel The Turn of the Screw. This time around, the plot focuses on a governess who is hired to look after a man’s niece and nephew in a country house. The house is of course haunted. Victoria Pedretti portrays Danielle “Dani” Clayton, our resident lesbian. The Haunting of Bly Manor is streaming on Netflix.

Wynonna Earp

Looking for something a little less creepy, and a little more camp? Wynonna Earp is the show for you. The show’s protagonist, Wynonna, is the heir to the Earp curse. Now, she’s destined to hunt and kill demons in the Ghost River Triangle. But it’s her younger sister, Waverly and her girlfriend Nicole, that have all our attention. Aside form the usual ups and downs of a relationship, the pair fight demons and solve mysteries together. We love to see it. Read up on just how much we love it. Wynonna Earp is streaming on Netflix.

Feral

Six students take some time off in the woods and you just know it’s going to be a bad time. A weird, humanoid monster attacks them, and one by one they are infected with a disease that turns them into rabid, bloodthirsty creatures. It’s essentially a different take on the whole zombie thing. Of the six students, two of them are a lesbian couple. It does feature gore and an idiot man being homophobic. But do the lesbians die? One of them takes her own life after being bitten, but her girlfriend survives. So don’t expect any happy endings here. Feral is streaming on Hulu.

Jennifer’s Body

For over a decade, Jennifer’s Body has been a favorite amongst lesbian and bisexual women. Who didn’t constantly rewatch the scene between Amanda Seyfried and Megan Fox as teenagers? And we all know the plot right? Jennifer is a possessed by a demon and it makes her eat boys at her school. Also, she’s definitely in love with her best friend. We can all agree on that, right? Jennifer’s Body is unfortunately not streaming on any of the major platforms. Was it a Halloween trick to include it in this list? Perhaps, but it would be truly evil not to share this lesbian horror classic. It is available to rent or buy on YouTube.

Dark Beacon

After her girlfriend leaves her, a woman tracks her down to a distant lighthouse. But her hopes of getting back together are dashed once she realizes there’s more going on than she thought. Now, she must save a child from her father’s evil spirit and her mother’s dwindling sanity. Distant location? Check. Ghosts? Check. Someone going crazy? Check. Dark Beacon is streaming on Amazon Prime.

Ghostbusters (2016)

The all-female remake of the ‘80s classic made so many men angry. Isn’t that reason enough to watch it? If you’re not one for overly creepy or gory movies, this comedy might be for you. While there isn’t a lesbian couple in the movie, it does star Kate McKinnon. And she has enough lesbian power to make it worthwhile. Ghostbusters (2016) is available to rent or buy on FandangoNow.

Carmilla

The 1871 novel by J. Sheridan Le Fanu was the inspiration behind the web series and movie of the same name. It has filled the need for lesbian vampires. The web series is available to stream in its entirely on YouTube, as is the movie from the same series. A feature film also based on the novel was set to be released this year, but the pandemic put its release on hold indefinitely. At least we got a trailer.

Thelma

This Norwegian supernatural thriller is about a young woman who discovers she has supernatural powers that materialize when she starts having feelings or one of her female classmates. As for her powers? She has the ability to manifest whatever she deeply wants. If she wants to heal, she can heal. If she wants to set someone on fire, she can do that too. Bring someone back to life? No problem. That’s the power of lesbianism. May we all be like Thelma and manifest what we desire. Catch Thelma on Hulu.

Dracula (2013)

There have been millions of reiterations of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. What makes this one worthy of being put on this list? Katie McGrath. And when Miss McGrath said, “in fairness, you can’t have a show without lesbianism” she meant that. The show follows Dracula in Victorian era London posing as Alexander Grayson. Katie McGrath plays Lucy Westerna, who is in love with her best friend Mina. You get the usual horror drama things, with a side of Katie McGrath making out with a woman. Dracula is available to stream on the NBC website.

Momento Mori (Whispering Corridors 2)

This South Korean horror movie was one of the first to depict lesbian characters. Two high school girls, Yoo Shi-eun and Min Hyo-shin are romantically involved. But not everyone is accepting of their relationship as their classmates become hostile. When Hyo-shin commits suicide, her ghost remains to haunt the students that condemned their relationship. It’s what they deserve. Unfortunately, this movie not available to stream at the moment, but the DVD is available on Amazon. So why is it on the list? We may be lowkey obsessed with K-pop and by proxy all things Korean right now, and what of it, hmm?
