"Horror films have always tiptoed around or bludgeoned straight on through modes of stimulation and fright. Wish-fulfillment sex and violence make for fascinating bedfellows and always have, and this list will please both genre fans and those looking for a chilling provocation.
Many of the films listed here are polarizing, which should come as a shock to no one. Horror by its very nature is exploitative, and combine this with ideas of eroticism and sexuality and you'll have the pious and the uptight squirming in their seats while the repressed and the churlish similarly agonize and gnash.
There's a few here that are flat-out trash – those can still be fun – and others that are camp, and others too that are thoughtful, artistic, and even, I would argue, grandiose. And a few that are just gross. Enjoy!"
