If you’re anything like us, you enjoy a good scary movie during the month of October. Dekkoo has plenty of options that will satisfy your spooky seasonal needs, but we narrowed down the selection process to highlight these nine flicks worthy of Halloween viewing.
Starring an all-male cast of hotties, this low-budget homoerotic slasher flick offers up a fun, sensual spin on the “sorority massacre” sub-genre. A goofy but noble college kid is surprised when he’s invited to join his school’s most exclusive frat house… until he comes face to face with a masked psychopath who is picking off all of the half-naked muscle boys one by one.
A small-town loner’s fascination with the new kid in town leads him into something much more sinister than he could ever have imagined. Released in 2006, Bugcrush was a massive critical hit on the film festival circuit. Writer-director Carter Smith went on to helm the cult feature-length films The Ruins and Jamie Marks is Dead.
In this short horror/thriller from director Mark Bessenger (Bite Marks, The Last Straight Man), a man calls into phone sex lines looking for a potential romantic partner. Vic, a college student, is interested, but is too nervous to accept, prompting the mysterious caller to take matters into his own hands.
Demons, a grisly and wickedly funny new short horror-comedy, follows Matt, a closeted serial killer on the hunt for love and acceptance… in a pretty messed-up world.
A masked madman stalks a gay porn set in 1979 Paris while its producer Anne, (French pop star Vanessa Paradis) tries to win back her editor and lover Lois by shooting her most ambitious film yet with her trusted, flaming sidekick Archibald. Shot in 35mm and featuring a killer retro score from M83, Knife+Heart is an ultra-stylish and blood-soaked ode to ’70s-era De Palma, Argento, and Friedkin.
Months after they broke up, Gunnar receives a strange phone call from his ex-boyfriend, Einar. He sounds distraught, like he’s about to do something terrible to himself. Gunnar drives up to the secluded cabin where Einar is holed up and soon discovers that there’s more going on than he imagined. The two men seem to be alone, but there’s some kind of supernatural force just beyond the walls that’s looking to get inside with them.
Finding it hard to cope with the loss of his fiancé, Donovan turns to his best friend, Adam, to implement a crazy plan to get him back. This stylish short film used witchcraft and demonology to tell a story of romance and heartbreak.
When a young gay man hooks up with a guy he meets on a dating app, he encounters something much more sinister than even his most base fears could have imagined. Set in a God-fearing town, director Dominic Haxton sets us up to believe that the only thing to fear is local homophobia, but he’s really about to witness something truly unthinkable.
Jasin and his vampire brood’s time is running out. In order for them to survive, Jasin needs to find a mortal to turn into a vampire. It’s sort of like finding a husband… but for all of eternity. Luckily, a fresh-faced young lad named Caleb seems to be just what the witch doctor ordered. The cast is packed with cuties in this gay, low-budget indie in the vampire-romance vein of Twilight. Vampire Boys 2: The New Brood is also streaming now on Dekkoo.
After encountering him during a burglary, Tom begins stalking and antagonizing the attractive young Lars. When Lars finds out about Tom’s intentions, he manages to turn the tables on him, leading to a shocking confrontation. With something of a Single White Female vibe (with ridiculously attractive men swapped in for the leads), The Year I Lost My Mind is a sexy mind-fuck of a thriller from Germany.
