If you’re looking for some great spooky movies to watch this Halloweekend — we got you set! Ranging from thrillers, gory slasher films to cult-classics, you’re sure to find the perfect film to cozy up to on this list! 


What Keeps You Alive

A sapphic couple celebrating their one year anniversary in the woods quickly turns deadly, when one of them reveals a shocking revelation that pits the two women together in a terrifying fight to survive.



In this new Hellraiser, the film focuses on a young woman struggling with addiction who comes into possession of the ancient puzzle box that summons the sadistic, supernatural Cenobites. 


The Retreat

When a lesbian couple with a rocky relationship goes to a pre-wedding retreat, little do they expect that they’ll have to fight for their lives when a group of militant serial killers tries to murder them. 


Bodies, Bodies, Bodies

When a party game gets too real and bodies start to actually drop, a group of 20-somethings have to figure out who the killer is in this satirical horror film. 



If being sent to conversion therapy wasn’t enough, a group of teenagers are also being stalked by a masked killer. 


Jennifer’s Body

The movie that sparked so many queer awakenings — Jennifer’s Body follows a cheerleader turned succubus who has an appetite for her male classmates and it’s up to her best friend to save her.


The Haunting of Bly Manor

If you’re in the mood to binge instead, The Haunting of Bly Manor fits the spooky, sapphic bill. 


The Rocky Horror Picture Show

A cult-classic, Rocky Horror is a campy, musical romp that fits the Halloween vibe without any of the actual scares.
