Below the cut is a list of films, books and television shows that feature gay, lesbian and/or bisexual characters that are in the horror genre or have elements of horror in them.
If you know of something that I forgot to include, or notice an error (such as something being included if it doesn’t have gay/lesbian/bi content), please send me a message and I will add it. I hope to see this list grow.
Please note that some of the media here may not portray gay, lesbian, or bi characters in a totally positive light, and just because I included it doesn’t mean that I am endorsing that.

Normally I don’t make posts like this but this was on my mind the entire time I was rewatching Fun Dead
In each frame transitions when Edd is making remarks on ASDFLand, the portraits in the background seem to change, referencing the artstyles that Edd went through when he started Eddsworld, and notice the broken picture frame?
Another cool thing is in this scene where them bois are looking at the ASDF Map:
I won’t elaborate cause it speaks for itself
And not to mention that Toms 2nd player gun was green, and it wasn’t lying on the floor? This probably doesn’t mean anything, but y'all know where I’m getting at
Also another fun thing:
The slight color difference in Tom and Edd’s hands in this frame, idk, it was just something I noticed lol
You seem to have an interesting AU idea, but I don't find anything about the story so could you tell me what happened in this AU?
Once upon a time, Sans was born alone with no one. There was no Papyrus, no Gaster and no Toriel to comfort him so naturally, he became a bad guy until one day while he was wondering around Deadin (Snowdin) and he came across a blue string. He followed it as it had peaked his curiosity. So he followed and as he did he found more and more strings. Eventually, he found another skeleton. For a moment Sans thought he found a new friend or just maybe a new family member. However, he quickly realized that was no ordinary skeleton. This skeleton was completely black. UnderHell SansYou wanna have a Helluva Time!Character InformationNicknamesHellRelationshipsMac: Friend?AppearancesUnderHellPhysical DescriptionBattle InformationEpilogueHe was covered from the skull down with error signs and the blue strings were emanating from him. Sans took a step back, but his foot landed on a stick and it snapped alerting the skeleton to his presence. The other skeleton smiled and said, “Oh and here I thought there wasn’t another Sans around here, but hey makes my job a whole lot easier.” The other skeleton attacked Sans, but luckily he was able to dodge. However, right when Sans was about to attack back the blue strings latched onto him like glue. He tried and tried to get them off, but they were on him so tight he might as well have been trying to lift a cinder block. The strange skeleton approached him and told him “Don’t worry this isn’t personal, it’s just businesses.” Sans quickly began to feel his life drain away. He saw someone come out of wet paint from the side of a house. It was another skeleton. Except this one was holding a giant paint brush and had strange eyes. As the new skeleton yelled out “ERROR!” Sans quickly took his opportunity and fired a Gaster blaster at the black skeleton. However, the skeleton noticed right away and dodged but in the process setting Sans free. As Sans fell to the ground his skull began to hurt. He watched as the two skeletons fought he was wondering “WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE?!”. He quickly teleported away from the scene. A few days later Sans had just finished leading the human through Lavafall and after he had explained to Undyne what the human was trying to do she let them pass on through. Sans said goodbye to the human at ColdValley. After that, he teleported to his favorite spot right at the edge of Lavafall’s biggest lavafall, The Great End. It was this huge lavafall that was said to lead to the core of the planet, but of course Sans didn’t believe that, but myths aside Sans began to feel his head hurt again. He thought turning on his purple eye would help, but instead, he got an even worse result. As soon as he opened his eyes he began to see strange things like another world where there was another him, another Undyne, and another skeleton called Papyrus. He also saw a man called W.D.Gaster and a kid named Frisk and Toriel wasn’t a ghost and… “…I…..Understand…..Everything…Now.” he said. Once he finally got himself together he started to build a machine. A machine that would take him somewhere where everything is okay, where everything is right.
It has been a year since the last time I told him I loved him, and it scratches at the back of my throat, a nasty cough desperate to break free from my body.
My horoscope says, “Happy Birthday, Gemini! Mercury is retrograde and didn’t buy you a present. The planets didn’t think you’d make it. We watched you collect pill bottles and we settled in for a long winter. We saw you pacing on that bridge and the whole sky dressed in black.”
I’m worried you’re biting off more than you can chew, everyone says, and I laugh and run my tongue hard against the sharps of my teeth. Look into my mouth. This endless, angry thing. You have no idea how much I can consume.
I read an article about the Instinctive Drowning Response. It doesn’t look anything like in the movies— you don’t call for help, just try to pull air into your lungs, just try to survive this water. Sometimes, a child will go under while their parent is watching, and they don’t even know anything is wrong.
My mom asks if everything’s okay, and I say of course.
Drowning is a quiet, desperate thing.
Three dozen crows drop dead in downtown Portland and no one knows why.
One time in junior high we found a 24-pack of Natty Light stuck up in a tree in that field with the water tower. It was at least a hundred degrees that whole summer, and we sipped skunky sun-scorched beer and thought, this is the life.

‘A SCANDAL IN BELGRAVIA’ REVISITED IN ‘HIS LAST VOW’?
Last week I rewatched ASIB and I noticed some interesting things which stubbornly refuse to leave my head. There are a lot of similarities between the two episodes regarding individual scenes as well as part of the time frame. Then this interesting meta by @longsnowsmoon5 came along and I wrote some of my thoughts down. And that triggered quite a considerable avalanche of ‘strange similarities’.
A SCANDAL IN BELGRAVIA
Sherlock is sent by the Brit.Government (=Mycroft) to confiscate a phone with secret/scandalous information.
Sherlock doesn’t get the phone. He gets druged instead and ends unconscious on a bed.
DI Lestrade takes a video of druged Sherlock.
A time jump of several months to Christmas
CIA agents (=Mycroft=Brit.Government) try to get to the phone with the secret/scandalous information. Unsuccessfully.
Sherlock gets really angry and throws the agent out of the window after beating him up thoroughly.
HIS LAST VOW
Sherlock is sent by the Brit.Government (=Lady Smallwood) to retrieve letters with secret/scandalous information.
Sherlock doesn’t get the letters. He gets shot instead and ends unconscious on a bed.
DI Lestrade wants to take a video of druged Sherlock
A time jump of several months to Christmas
Sherlock (for Mary=ex-agent=Mycroft?) tries to get the secret/scandalous information in the Appledore vaults. Unsuccessfully.
Sherlock gets really angry and shoots a man in the head.
Both episodes include a scene with a body search (pictures)
ASIB - the CIA agent searches Sherlock
HLV - Magnussons body guards search Sherlock and John
In both episodes Sherlock goes ‘undercover’ for a case
ASIB - as vicar with a bleeding face (engaged with God?)
Both episodes contain a piece of dialog where Mycroft forbids Sherlock to persue the case further.
MYCROFT: Irene Adler is no longer any concern of yours. From now on you will stay out of this. SHERLOCK: Oh, will I? MYCROFT: Yes, Sherlock, you will
MYCROFT: Magnussen is not your business. SHERLOCK: Oh, you mean he’s yours. MYCROFT: You may consider him under my protection. SHERLOCK: I consider you under his thumb. MYCROFT: If you go against Magnussen, then you will find yourself going against me.
Thanks for tagging me, @ebaeschnbliah, these parallels are indeed amazing. And I could even add some more:
in both episodes there is a “staged” MP: the hiker deduction and the 7-minute sequence after the shot
in both episodes Sherlock is attacked by a woman
in both episodes he is given/takes drugs
in both episodes Sherlock’s flat is searched for drugs
in both episodes we get a body in morgue that later comes back from the dead
in both episodes a pivotal scene takes place in a/in front of a plane
Oh … that is brilliant! Now that you mention it: both women - Irene and Mary have a shady/non existent past, are clever, ruthless, misbehave and live/lived under a false identity at some point in their lifes.
You mention how both Irene and Mary are violent towards Sherlock. They’re also both ostensible romantic interests for either John or Sherlock, both tease John and Sherlock about their feelings for each other (though Mary mostly does this earlier in the season), and both attempt to mess with their relationship. Despite all this, in both episodes, Sherlock acts to save their lives anyway.
A long list of 'strange similarities’ got even a bit longer. Thank you all for your input.
And what do we say about coincidence? It’s on the tip of my tongue …..
SOMETHING BIG’S COMING, ISN’T IT ? (Sherlock ASIB)
“Once upon a time, at the foot of a great mountain There was a town where the people known as Happy Folk, lived Their very existence, a mystery to the rest of the world Obscured as it was by great clouds
Here they played out their peaceful lives Innocent of the litany of excess and violence That was growing in the world below To live in harmony with the spirit Of the mountain called, Monkey was enough
Then one day, strange folk arrived in the town They came in camouflage, hidden behind dark glasses But no one noticed them They only saw shadows, you see Without the truth of the eyes, the Happy Folk were blind
Falling out of aeroplanes and hiding out in holes Waiting for the sunset to come, people going home Jump out from behind them and shoot them in the head Now everybody dancing the dance of the dead The dance of the dead, the dance of the dead
In time, the strange folk found their way Into the higher reaches of the mountain And it was there that they found The caves of unimaginable sincerity and giving
By chance, they stumbled upon the place Where all good souls come to rest The strange folk, they coveted the jewels In these caves above all things
And soon they began to mine the mountain It’s rich seam fueling the chaos of their own world Meanwhile, down in the town, the Happy Folk slept restlessly Their dreams invaded by shadowy figures digging away at their souls
Every day, people would wake and stare at the mountain Why was it bringing darkness into their lives? And as the strange folk mined deeper and deeper into the mountain Holes began to appear, bringing with them a cold and bitter wind That chilled the very soul of the Monkey
For the first time, the happy folk felt fearful For they knew that soon the Monkey would stir from its deep sleep Then there came a sound, distant first, it grew into castrophany So immense that it could be heard far away in space
There were no screams, there was no time The mountain called Monkey had spoken It was only fire and then, nothing
Oh, little town in U.S.A., the time has come to see There’s nothing you believe you want But where were you when it all came down on me? Did you call me? No…"
The Defender of the Throne: The Warrior Who Protects the Living and the Dead
In a world where the throne, the ultimate epitome of power, is desired by all, there is one man who disregards it as utterly worthless, yet he is the one who PROTECTS IT in the end. And it isn’t because of the power it can offer him, but because it represents his father - it’s his father’s will and legacy Wang So decides to defend in the end. And never has the symbolism featured throughout the whole story been more important and relevant than now, when this particular storyline comes full circle. Since the very beginning, SO HAS BEEN PORTRAYED AS A PROTECTOR:
the Wolf Prince - an animal that is known for its loyalty to its pack, and its protection of it
his name meaning “radiance” - like a star that shines even in the deepest darkness; just like he fights and never gives up even when the situation seems hopeless and everything appears lost
his appearance during the exorcism ritual as Bangsangssi, the warrior who protects BOTH THE LIVING AND THE DEAD FROM EVIL, just like WS protects the people he loves while they’re alive and even after they die; just like protects the legacy of his father or fights for the CP after he dies
“When I was little, somebody said that I had the star of a king. That same day, I got this scar on my face. I didn’t even get treated as a prince, much less king. Your predestined one? I don’t believe in such a thing as fate.”
Throughout the story, it’s been shown that Wang So IS THE BEST CHOICE FOR THE KING and it isn’t because of fate or destiny, but because he IS THE BEST SUITED FOR IT WITH HIS CAPABILITIES AND TALENTS.He doesn’t crave power nor does he believe in destiny, superstitions or the will of the Heavens (as was shown many times, for instance during the rain ritual) which makes him VIRTUALLY UNCORRUPTABLE. Everyone who has power is afraid to lose it, but to him it’s merely a means to an end - it would have been so easy for him to TAKE THE THRONE FOR HIMSELF WHEN THE KING DIED BUT HE WASN’t EVEN TEMPTEDD BY IT; and not even the talk of destiny can sway him. He is a PRAGMATIST, PRACTICAL, INTELLIGENT, QUICK-WITTED AND EXTREMELY PERCEPTIVE (he immediately realizes it’s Wook whom HS’s protecting and who’s really behind the revolt).
His loyalty has gained him the loyalty of others in return, it gained him allies - the general, the 13th Prince and even Hae Soo because when she decides to trust him even when she can’t trust anyone else, and place the future of the kingdom into his hands, it’s because of that unwavering loyalty to her he has exhibited throughout the years. And he doesn’t not disappoint her. In the end, So defends both the body of the dead king and his legacy because HE IS THE FUTURE THAT WILL ARRIVE SOON AND HE WILL FIGHT ON AND LIVE ON BECAUSE ONE DAY A FUTURE WILL COME WHERE HIS HAE SOO WILL BE BORN AND HE NEEDS TO CREATE THAT FUTURE.
Theres something thats been bugging me and I really just want to get it off my chest a little.
There was a post going around that was re blogged by some mutuals and I didnt want to jump start my own opinions onto that post because honestly theres nothing wrong with liking the post and I dont want to tie anyone into a convo they’d rather not be in. The post in question was talking about a scenario of someone looking up to animation and being inspired..watching ghibli movies , creating their own characters..working hard to learn animation and - oh guess what they now animate on talking crude talking food movies. Thats so unfortunate.
The post could be meant as a just a joke but if it was sincere its one of the things that really bugs me sometimes about how people view this industry. this COMMERCIAL industry. This industry where guess what the projects are what you make of it , and the projects may not be something that inspires you but you may get some great experience out of it and some amazing people to learn from. There are lots of projects I’ve worked on personally that have been bashed , been called cash grabs , have been forgotten , and honestly as an animator i’ve always learned something and moved forward by it. Not every thing i’ve worked on has been something that I -personally- would watch but that doesnt mean it wasnt a good experience.
Am i saying there arent any people on this movie going ‘ oh man..wtf happened with my career path ‘ well no but .. you could say that for ANYTHING. You could have people saying that for television shows or for movies that arent as blockbuster hits. To me its the same argument of ‘ oh man you’re drawing fanart ? what are you doing with your skills ‘ . I know a lot of people who do art and animation thats personally not to my tastes , but that doesnt mean they cant love what they do. Not everyone has to be inspired by ghibli movies or glen keane….some people can like crude humor and have a blast.
Now im not saying people cant think the movie is dumb , but what im saying is dont weep over any possible wasted potential - because what does is it sums up potential by someones job and thats the one thing I always want to drive home about the animation industry. YOU.ARE.NOT.YOUR.JOB . Dont weigh someones worth or potential or artistic skills purely by the job that they have - you have no idea what they do in their off time. Not every project i’ve been on inspires me ..but thats ok , because its my job. I tell everyone to save some energy for themselves for their own projects , their own art , for this reason - to REMAIN inspired and create what they love from their own sources. That way it doesnt matter what you’re hired to do , wether its a pre-school show , a television show with crazy tight deadines that doesnt allow you to do your best work , or a crude comedy about talking food , you’re still doing something in your spare time that keeps your original love alive. Projects that you can get crazy passionate about that are in your wheelhouse and line up with your tastes are few and far between so lets not make people feel like they’re wasting their potential and their dreams if they happen to be on something thats not, geeze.
And i mean personally I saw the trailer and I laughed at all the swearing because dammit animation is a medium not a genre and it can be used for whatever.
Saudi Arabia’s head of the central Hajj commitee, Prince Khaled al-Faisal, has blamed the crush outside the holy city of Mecca that killed at least 717 people and injured 850 more on “some pilgrims with African nationalities”, according to Saudi-owned al-Arabiya TV.
People from several different countries are reported to have died in the stampede, which took place when two groups of pilgrims arrived at a crossroads on Street 204 at the tent city of Mina for a traditional stone-throwing ritual.
Prince Khaled’s controversial remarks on undisciplined pilgrims were echoed by Saudi health minister Khaled al-Falih, who was quoted by El-Ekhbariya television as saying that “many pilgrims move without respecting the timetables [set by authorities, which was the] principal reason for this type of accident. If the pilgrims had followed instructions, this type of accident could have been avoided.”
The head of Iran’s Hajj organisation, Said Ohadi, said the incident was caused by the authorities’ decision to close two paths near the scene of the symbolic ‘stoning of the devil’ ritual. “Today’s incident shows mismanagement and lack of serious attention to the safety of pilgrims. There is no other explanation. The Saudi officials should be held accountable,” he said on Iranian state television according to AFP.
in other news i truly despise saudi arabia, and have never had any desire to go there or any where in the gulf. and ppl who i meet from saudi are anti black as hell. and frankly, the saudis have been criticized for years for mismanaging hajj and creating conditions which could be dangerous for worshippers.
I don't know why everyone is freaking out about Hook not telling Emma.
A lot of people are saying that him not telling Emma about the curse on his lips is the same as Neal not telling Emma about the whole Storybrooke savior thing and that both take away her agency.
But here’s the difference.
When August told Neal that he had to leave Emma. he wasn’t threatening him, he wasn’t trying to be evil or specifcally destroy them as a couple, he was trying to get Emma to be the savior. In fact, he specically told Neal that he had a choice. He could’ve stayed with Emma, abnadoned her, or gone with her to Storybrooke. And so, he should’ve told her because firstly, there was nothing stopping him, and secondly, they could’ve discussed the options because all three of them were possible and no intended harm would’ve come to them if Neal had picked to stay with her or go with her to Storybrooke. But Neal didn’t tell Emma despite the fact that he could have. He decided, with the option of letting Emma making her choices at hand, to leave her in jail.
But with Killian, his immediate decision was to tell Emma: ‘I won’t do it. I’ll tell her.’
This line is extremely important.
Because literally the first thing Killian wanted to do was let Emma choose, let her know, give her her agency. His decision was to let Emma decide.
But then Zelena did this:
Kiss Emma = Magic gone Don’t kiss Emma = Family dead Tell Emma = Family dead
In other words, she took away his decision of telling Emma. That’s the difference between Hook and Neal. Something is actively preventing Killian from telling Emma about the curse whereas nothing was in the way of Neal telling Emma about Storybrooke.
Please, everyone do not forget about that 2013 season — the worst to first, the tragedy of the Boston Marathon, everyone rallying around the city, the finish line, the duck boats, everything, celebrating at home. Might be down a little bit in the win-loss column right now, but do not let that erase any of those memories from last year that I get to wear a ring on my finger for. I’m proud to be a Red Sox for those times.
