You may find eroticism and horror movies strange bedfellows, but you shouldn’t — sexy horror films are absolutely a thing, and with so many good ones to choose from, they probably deserve their own genre. We’ve picked the sexiest flicks out there, featuring everything from blood-sucking vampires and carnal werewolves to unhinged serial killers — with a whole lot of sex thrown in.
From Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, and Keanu Reeves‘s erotic dreamscape of an interpretation of the story of Count Dracula in “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” to Brad Pitt‘s turn as a sexy vampire in “Interview With the Vampire,” vampire movies seem to be particularly inclined to mix sensuality with gore. Of course, Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried‘s iconic riff on demonic possession in “Jennifer’s Body” shows that any type of monster can make for a good subject for a sexy horror film. But perhaps the scariest movies on this list are the realistic ones.
If you have a strong stomach (believe us, some of these movies make the surgeries on “Grey’s Anatomy” look like a game of Operation), you just might have some steamy, erotic thrillers to pick from on your next date night. Read ahead for some of the sexiest horror movies of all time, perfect for Halloween viewing and beyond.
