What is the gayest horror film sequel ever made?

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2Jeepers Creepers 2
Name of charactersA male hero called Jesse. 8Female hero called Minxie. 4
Prime Beef?
Oh well. 5

Well hello. 9
Sexualisation of male bodiesLisa: "Sometimes when I'm lying here in bed, I see Glen in his window across the way getting ready for bed. His body is slim and smooth, and I know I shouldn't watch him, but that part of me that wants him forces me to. That's when I weaken, that's when I want to go to him." Also, Jesse dances in a pair of shorty shorts and little else on his bed. 8Loads of bare-chested jocks on a bus. the "deleted scenes" on the DVD has the camera lovingly carress a row of sweaty pectoral muscles all lined up. As well as that, the boys all stand rather close to one another when they piss in a field. There's a lotta penis envy going on. 10
Sexually "interesting" older characters?

Coach Schneider who 'frequents' gay S/M bars and has his bare ass whipped by towels. 9
Betty Borman the butch bus-driver, regular on "Popular" (also comes to a sticky end) 5
Homosexual panic?Is Freddy trying to get into Jesse's body? Are Jesse's dreams really a Freudian manifestation of his unresolved feelings for best buddy Robert? 7The boys taunt each other with phrases like "jock sniffer", one boy called Izzy is accused of having once gone to a *gasp* Gay Bar resulting in hilarious "Izzy or isn't he?" jokes. The monster seems to only go after young men - the girls all survive. 9
Feminist undertones?Jesse's girlfriend helps to save the day, by using her love and frizzy red hair to stop Freddy. 5The boys are all complete wimps and pussies. The only character who does the monster any damage is one of the girls who wields a mean javelin. 6

Jeepers Creepers 2 wins by a couple of inches. Hurrah for gay horror moveis.
