    that actually wasnt all dumb and prissy. ive seen some gay horror films where the gay plays a sterotypical gay guy as everyone else sees us.

    but i just got done watching Nite Tales and there was a gay guy in the 2nd story about the friends alone in the house with a clown. and to my suprise...he was a normal charecter. they didnt focus on him being gay or him being affeminate which is what i guess was cool about it. this was a film made for BET and i think its pretty awsome for them to do this...

    here is the commercial, the first movie about the bank robbers is dumb the one im talking about is the 2nd one called "Storm" and yes....its hosted by Flave Flav

    Was it Dante Basco? The asian guy in the navy?

    cause he's also played a gay character in "But I'm a Cheerleader".... I would not be sad if he bats for our team at all.

    yeah he was the asian dude, and to the guy who asked about the overall rating, id say about a 2.5/5 only watch it if u really like horror films like me, dont expect a solid story line or anything, ill admit it did exceed my expectations. but the first one about the robbers sucks bad..

    Does the gay character die? Just wondering when a gay character will actually survive a horror move, or for that matter be one of the heros.

    If you want to see a good pure gay horror movie see HellBent. This coming from someone who doesn't like horror movies. This was the movie that got me wanting to see a drag queen killing zombies movie. If only they would make one.

    Let me guess... the gay guy gets killed before the black guy!

    What makes you think the gay guy isn't the black guy?

    I'm going to out myself as a film studies dude here, but whatever here goes.

    While there may not be many gay protagonists in horror films, horror films can be rife with characters characterized by what a society perceives as perverse or deviant sexuality (homosexuality included) represented by the slasher/monster. Best example is Freddy Krueger - the pedophile. You'll find plenty of horror films where the monster character is gay or at least portrayed as having a very very ambiguous sexuality. Think of a lot of the serial killer films that you've seen, many are cut ups of jeffrey dahmer, ed gein, and john wayne gacy.

    So I guess what I'm saying is finding a gay dude that isn't constructed as "abnormal" in a horror film is actually sort of ground breaking.

    This is a pretty good movie that has a gay protagonist struggling to come to terms with his sexuality while dealing with a slasher:
