17 Horror Films Only LGBT People Understand

Carrie (1976)

What LGBT person hasn't identified with Carrie? The 1976 film, based on the Stephen King novel, centers on a lonely teenage girl (Sissy Spacek) who is tormented by bullies and a religious zealot of a mother. She gets her revenge at that high-school bastion of heteronormativity, prom, in a bloody, fiery scene that is one of the most iconic in horror history. Lines like "I can see your dirty pillows" also cement this terrifying tale in the pantheon of queer camp.— Daniel Reynolds
