Many films in this sub-genre are low productions, but others are made by top-notch directors, and produced with the utmost artistic skill.
- “Antichrist,” which is directed by Lars Von Trier, is the best film that director has ever created. It’s about a couple that suffers a loss, and they go to a cabin in the woods to deal with their pain. While they’re there, horrible things begin to transpire. The movie has actual hardcore scenes in it, but all the sex is balanced out by absolute emotional and physical brutality. It’s easily one of the most disturbing films ever created, and it’s definitely among the best erotic horror movies in cinematic history.
- “Shivers” which was also known as “They Came From Within” is a very early film by the great director David Cronenberg. It’s the best of the erotic horror movies he ever made, and mixing sex and death has always been one of his specialties.

- “Delirium” is an insane Italian horror movie directed by Renato Polselli. This film is technically considered a “giallo,” which is an Italian sub-genre that can be very similar to the American “slasher” films. It’s about a crazed serial killer and his incredibly hot wife. Before it ends, we have murder, mayhem, wild plot twists, along with lots of heterosexual and lesbian sex.
- “Vampyres: Daughters of Darkness” is one of the best lesbian vampire movies, and it’s definitely the best one in terms of its effective use of eroticism.

They use their stunning looks to lure in traveling men, so that they can murder them and drink their blood. This has as much sex as any of the erotic horror movies, and two of the hottest women you’re likely to see in this genre. It also has a great story, and it can be genuinely creepy in places.
