Seductive & Erotic Thrillers
Sex and death are the lifeblood of the erotic thriller. A mode rather than a genre, it links the pathology of murder with that of seduction. Leaning on tropes like hard-boiled crime, police procedurals and a villainous femme fatale at the centre of the story, this narrative mode borrows heavily from film noir, though it isn't defined by any set of aesthetic conventions. Rather, its examples are linked by themes of obsession, deception and revenge.
