There are more hot horror movies than you might imagine, even though the words “sexy” and “horror” don’t go together as naturally as fish and chips. In reality, sex and terror have long been lovers on the big screen. Horror films have a history of exploiting sexuality and sexual experience to denote which characters are deserving of salvation and which characters are deserving victims of whatever supernatural entity or vengeful slasher may be at large.
It’s one of the reasons the phrase “final girl” was coined; in virtually every case, the “final girl” declines the sex, drugs, and booze that her companions consume, and it’s part of what ultimately saves her in the end credits.
But in recent decades, lots of movies have spun the idea of the “final girl” on its head, including the tongue-in-cheek Scream franchise and the porn-themed “X.” And other movies, like “Cam” and “It Follows,” have embraced sex and sensuality wholeheartedly as key pieces of their plot — no moralising required.
Sexy movies and horror flicks both get your heart rate going, so it only makes sense that combining the two elements makes for an erotically thrilling film. We’ve rounded up the sexiest horror movies streaming on Netflix right now, and believe us when we say watching any of these flicks will have you grabbing for your date’s hand (but whether it’s out of fright or frisson is up to you).
