Erotic horror


Erotic horror, alternately called horror erotica or dark erotica, is a term applied to works of fiction in which sensual or sexual imagery are blended with horrific overtones or story elements for the sake of sexual titillation.[1] Horror fiction of this type is most common in literature and film. Erotic horror films are a cornerstone of Spanish horror.[2]
