Daughter of Dracula (1936). The lesbian element isn't so buried as to be called a subtext. It's evidence and deliberate.
"Dracula's Daughter was not as successful as the original upon its release, although it was generally critically well-reviewed. In the intervening decades, criticism has been deeply divided. Modern critics and scholars have noted the strong lesbian overtones of the film, overtones that Universal acknowledged from the start of filming and which they exploited in some early advertising."

The Claire Bloom character, Theodora, is gay. Very daring for 1962. And it's a positive portrayal, she's beautiful and smart. Julie Harris says something bitchy about it at one point, but she was obviously just being a cunt, and apologizes to Theo at the end.

The Lost Boys. Corey Haim's Sam had a hot poster of Rob Lowe on his bedroom door, and there was just something about the tense relationship between Michael (Jason Patric) and David (Kiefer Sutherland).

"Fright Night" was brimming with gayness. For starters, it had Roddy McDowall, Amanda Bearse and Stephen Geoffreys in the cast. As for the plot, there is a gay undercurrent in Stephen's outcast character Evil Ed.

HA! The Bride of Frankenstein comes to mind. There's Ernest Theisinger's queeny portrayal of Doctor Pretorius, aided by (gay) Colin Clive's Frankenstein. The prologue with Lord Byron and Percy (hehe) Shelly is very campy also. Director James Whale, also gay, just runs with it.

"Fear No Evil" from 1981. As a sixteen year old gay guy coming to terms with his sexuality, this movie was a fucking eye-opener and a half. Very homoerotic throughout. The shower scene... well, it must be seen to be believed.

Kubrick seldom left details to chance in his movies so Jack Nicholson looking at a Playgirl magazine in an early scene is probably most likely NOT some random happenstance.

Movies like "Hellbent" and the DeCoteau stuff are intentionally for a gay audience. I was more going for just horror films that happen to have a gay subtext.

That stuff about the subtext in the Shining is fairly homophobic...equating child molestation with homosexuality...was Kubrick a bigoted homophobe?
Isn't there also a homophobic scene in Barry Lyndon?

I also think he's wrong in his conclusions in that Shining deconstruction. In a very peculiar way too. He points out that Torrence checks out every woman who walks by, yet suggests he's a gay pedophile? Wendy's a lesbian because there are some girly pics around? Ridiculous.
Kubrick's films were about seduction and (to some extent)initiation. It's the hotel trying to 'seduce' Torrence and his son Danny. I don't get that Torrence molested his son. Certainly not from the scene of Nicholson in the room with the naked ghost. He's suggesting that was really Danny? That doesn't make sense. Danny had been in the room and something terrible had clearly happened to him. Perhaps the ghost tried to 'seduce' him as she later did with the father. That's more thematically consistent given that she turns into an old woman while with Torrence, suggesting an age differential comparable to the one of the younger version ghost and the boy.
When he says that Lolita was about molestation, that's certainly not what the author intended. We have become enlightened about such things, and that's our contemporary perspective. But Lolita was meant to be about seduction...it's a theme Kubrick comes back to again and again.
The hotel was, in essence, molesting them. It was trying to seduce them into its snare. It was successful with Torrence but not with Danny, because Danny had Wendy to protect him.
I think he over-read the Playgirl thing. There is a parent-child seduction going on, but it's not sexual. The father is trying to seduce the boy's soul, just as the hotel is trying to seduce his. I don't think Torrence was intended to be read as gay, unless Kubrick was just a raging homophobe who thought gayness was illness and evil. I think it's more likely that the female ghost molested Danny in that room, which is why he was so traumatized, just as she tried to seduce Torrence and then tricked him.

I think Eli Roth's first Hostel movie is somewhat homoerotic.
The men that pay to torture the victims choose the sex and national origin that they want to have their way (so to speak) with.
Both of the friends that we follow through the story (Jay Hernandez and that dirty blond-haired actor) are selected by middle-aged males who I believe get a lot of sexual pleasure out of the 'procedures' that they perform on their bodies. The boys are tied down to chairs, and while Jay Hernandez got to keep his clothes on for some reason, the blond guy was in his boxer shorts throughout.
So if Hostel weren't a torture porn flick with the intention of showing the most stomach-turning scenes the ratings board would allow, the homoerotic element of the set up would be more evident.

Hammer films and its competitors Amicus and Tigon all pushed the sexual boundaries in the 70s.
The Hammer trilogy "The Vampire Lovers", "Twins of Evil" and "Lust for a Vampire" were explicitly lesbian themed.
David Peel starred in Hammer's "Brides of Dracula", he was openly homosexual, and the movie has homosexual overtones.
The modern horror film "May" with Anna Faris and Angela Bettis features a lesbian relationship.
There is an older book called "Monsters in the Closet: Homosexuality and the Horror Film" about this very subject.

Actually, the antagonist in "Terror Train" (one of Jamie Lee Curtis's post-"Halloween" horror flicks), played by Derek Mackinnon, is a gay drag performer in real life. His character in the film, Kenny, is a shy college student who gets a cruel prank played on him by members of a fraternity and a sorority (which include hottie Hart Bochner and Jamie Lee). He gets them all back by murdering them three years later during a party on a train. Kenny dons many costumes in the film as he offs his enemies, including dressing in drag as a magician's assisant (the magician being a young unknown David Copperfield). More gay subtext occurs in the movie with Hart's character Doc, who harbors what seems to be a little more than a crush on his best buddy. Vanity also appears in this movie, before she met up with Prince.
It's a good little Canadian horror flick that sort of forshadows all the attention bullies and their victims garner nowadays.

The Shining is Kubrick's admission that he faked the moon landings in a sound stage.
After knowing this, one can piece together all of the symbolism in the film and it is absolutely awesome.

I'm not saying that we didn't go to the moon, I'm just saying that NASA hired Kubrick to film the moon landing in the way they wanted as presented to the public.
There may have been some security issues or some discoveries they did not want us to know about.
Or, like many believe, we just never went.

The last scene in The Burning (1981) is very peculiar - the leading male character descends into an abandoned mineshift to save a nerdy teen boy from the killer. You could say they replaced the usual "final girl" with a "final boy" which gives it a homoerotic tone of some sort. The leading character actually has a girlfriend in the movie and it's interesting they didn't write her into the last scene (screenplay was written by none other than Bob Weinstein).

And I also saw some gay subtext in Witchboard - those two guys acted as if they were ex-boyfriends and Todd Allen's reaction when the other guy died was very intense and emotional. Of course they were probably just very good friends but because male friendships are rarely presented in such raw and realistic manner onscreen (especially in corny horror movies) we immidiately label them as "gay" when we see them. Such portrayal of bromances were much more common in the past (like the famous kiss in Wings in 1927 or the two guys dancing in those 19th century Dickson Experimental Sound Films) - audiences back then probably paid no attention to those scenes but to modern-day viewers they seem gay.

Forget the name but it's really weird. This guy is being bullied and one bully even shows him how he's gonna bully him by ... kissing him in the gym showers. Then the victim goes crazy and gets strange powers and dresses up like Frank-n-Furter and goes vamping around shooting out electricity and sashaying and vamping some more. Kills a bunch of people at the town's annual Passion Play where they reenact the crucifixion. I am not making this up.
