Collider's 18 Erotic Thrillers to Watch Instead of 'Fifty Shades'
"The back alley bastard child of noir, pulp, and Hitchcockian paranoia; the erotic thriller is one of the most indulgent and trashy genres in cinema, but it's not without its merits. It hinges on the marriage of sex and death; mixing up seduction, deception, and violence into a decadently delicious cocktail that allows us to explore our basest animal instincts from a safe distance. And they're not all about the sex (though they are a lot about the sex); the best erotic thrillers entangle their lurid affairs into compelling mysteries and dramatic tales of Which might sound a bit like the old "I read it for the articles" refrain, but Playboy always has had excellent articles, and erotic thrillers are built on gripping stories."
