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.

So far I've included notes for the following films:
Pandora's Box (1929)
Cat People (1942)
The Curse of the Cat People (1944)
•The Birds (1963)
The Last House on the Left (1972)
Ernest Scared Stupid (1991)
Black Christmas (1974)
Saw (2004)
