Right from the beginning of cinema, filmmakers have resorted to titillation and sensuality to sell their films at the box office. Some however push the boundaries when it comes to depicting sex on-screen with an intention of shocking the audience or to create a niche for themselves as the first one to do so. Whatever might be their intention the formula seemed to have worked for hundreds of film-makers. So let’s have a look at the list of top sexy horror movies ever made. You can stream some of these sexiest horror movies on Hulu or Amazon Prime.
15. It Follows (2014)
A supernatural psychological thriller, this film made its debut at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. A horror film that bears Tarantino’s seal of approval has to be by all logical understanding, a well-made film. The content lives up to the reputation and has a brilliant character development and a slow steady building of tension accentuated by the soundtrack and the very ambiguous ending. The plot follows a metaphorical monster that stalks victims and kills it and this can be transmitted to another victim through sex. The film has often been seen as a symbolism for sexually transmitted diseases but the true horror of the film sparks from the nightmarish quality where escape simply is not an option.
14. Black Swan (2010)
Darren Aronofsky is the modern ambassador of analytically drawing the most depressing and disturbing analogies with a frightening perfection. With an ensemble cast of Natalie Portman, Vincent Cassel, Mila Kunis, Barbara Hershey and Winona Ryder, ‘Black Swan’ chronicles the story of a committed dancer who wins the lead role in a production of Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake”. However, all merriness turns into sour hell when she starts to struggle to maintain her sanity whilst engaging in an unhealthy obsession in understanding her role. The movie finds itself in the core of human psychology and the minds’ fixation of obtaining perfection. Premiering at the Venice International Film Festival, ‘Black Swan’ glacially seeped in the unripe veins of the audience to transform into one of 2010’s best films. The film completely rests upon a historic performance by both Natalie Portman and Barbara Hershey, for which the former won the “Best Actress” awards at the Academy Awards.
13. Suspiria (1973)
