Halloween 2013: Kinky Sex And Horror: Part Two

On this day before the big holiday, Marie and I are coming at you with another round of what we all love best: kinky sex and horror.  In combination, of course.  If you missed the first part of the fun, you can go HERE and check it out.  If you're already caught up, then away we go!

Let's start out with a David Lynch classic. Seems appropriate...

BLUE VELVET (1986)
Dennis Hopper delivers another bizarre and compelling performance in David Lynch’s 1986 film. He costars as Frank, a creep who has kidnapped Dorothy’s (Isabella Rossellini) husband and child and now subjects her to his very weird idea of sex. Let’s just say it involves a blue velvet robe and Frank breathing heavily through a gas mask while wielding a pair of scissors. It is an extremely intense scene, one that has you writhing the whole painstaking time, but in a good way. /MR


BRAIN DAMAGE (1988)
When Brian (Rick Hearst) allows himself to be a willing host to a brain-eating parasite named Aylmer that looks perhaps unsurprisingly like a diseased penis, all bets are off.  Director Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case) balances humor and gore quite well here, as the parasite has Brian searching endlessly for victims that he can suck the brains out of.  The most amusing bit has Brian and a sleazy slut in an alley getting their groove on....until blowing your brains out takes on a whole new meaning. Aylmer shoots and scores! You've got to see this one to believe it, kids./CH

JACOB'S LADDER (1990)
Jacob Singer (Tim Robbins) has been going through a tough time as of late. After returning from the Vietnam War, there is no line drawn between nightmares and reality. His life is one grotesque hallucination after another. While all of Jacob’s visions are terrifying, one of the more memorable moments is when he finds himself on the dance floor of a party with his wife, who he turns to see dancing with some creature that’s somewhere between a dinosaur and an insect. A long stinger then impales his wife, coming out through her mouth. The whole thing is weirdly sexual, and a difficult visual to get out of your mind. /MR


HELLRAISER (1987)
Frank and Julia were already in a wild, forbidden relationship with apparently lots of kinky sex when Frank disappeared for a spell.  He messed around with an enigmatic puzzle box and bit off more than he could chew with the sadomasochistic Cenobites. When Julia and her current husband Larry (Frank's brother) move into the family home, Frank's remains are unintentionally (at first) reanimated by some spilled blood.  Julia discovers Frank in an upstairs bedroom and though he is in various states of reanimation, it doesn't stop her from wanting him back, kinky sex and all.  Hellraiser is a highly sexual film, combining pain and pleasure for the ultimate high./CH


THE SHINING (1980)
I’d like to make light of two scenes in Stanley Kubrick’s film. The first is probably obvious if you’ve seen the movie. The seen where Jack (Jack Nicholson) goes in to room 237 and finds a beautiful naked woman climbing out of the bathtub to embrace him. Things are getting steamy when Jack glances a look in the mirror to find that the woman in his arms is now elderly and in an advanced state of decomposure. The second is just a fleeting moment when the Overlook has unleashed all its ghosts on the Torrance family. Wendy (Shelley Duvall) is fleeing from her axe-wielding husband when she rushes past a hotel room where the door is ajar. Inside there’s a man in a dog suit giving some guy a blowjob. Pretty weird stuff, Kubrick…/MR


TEETH (2007)
Teenager Dawn belongs to an abstinence group and wears a purity ring. When she finally meets a boy she likes and he takes things too far one night, she bites off his penis with her vagina.  Yes, that's what I said.  After a heavy bout of Googling, Dawn realizes she has vagina dentata, a condition in which the vagina contains teeth.  Needless to say, Dawn begins using her bizarre malady to exact revenge on the too-eager boys and men in her life.  American Horror Story: Coven also boasts a story line this season on a young girl with the same condition. She too, becomes vengeful in her sexual endeavors./CH



THE ABC'S OF DEATH (2012)
While The ABC’s of Death is an anthology film that consists of 26 different segments (one for each letter of the alphabet), I am focusing on one in particular. It’s called “L is for Libido" and is directed by Timo Tjahjhanto. The concept is that a man finds himself strapped to a chair in a strange room; within the room are masked onlookers, another man strapped in a chair beside him, and a stage before them. The two men are part of some sick form of entertainment where they must watch various scenes sexuality and masturbate to them. Whoever gets off first lives another round. What’s even more fucked up is that the scenes that are intended for arousal become more and controversial with each round, eventually becoming downright disturbing. /MR

ANGEL HEART (1987)
Never one to back down from a sex scene, Mickey Rourke gives it his all in this chilling voodoo thriller. Not only does a man die of suffocation from having his own penis cut off and shoved down his throat, but Roarke's character Harry Angel has an utterly WILD sex scene with (Cosby girl) Lisa Bonet. It is probably some of the craziest, most realistic sex on film that you're likely to see in a film not rated X.  It was said that the bloody, graphic scene had to be trimmed for the R-rating and also that it was not simulated - that the two stars did indeed have sex during the scene. As an owner of the unrated version of the film, I'd have to agree with that thought. If not, those are some world class film editors and choreographers./CH



SPLICE (2009)
Clive (Adrien Body) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) are a husband and wife team of genetic engineers who are on the brink of something incredible. They are creating a life from using spliced DNA from various animals in hopes to make a medical breakthrough. However, they just can’t get it right, so Elsa decides to add some of her own DNA to the mix; and thus Dren is born. Dren is a rapidly developing humanoid creature that is one part sympathetic and five parts unsettling. When Elsa insists that they raise her like a daughter, it’s clear that this isn’t going to be a conventional family. However, what is completely uncalled for is one of the weirdest and more morally challenged sex scenes I’ve ever seen. /MR


CAT PEOPLE (1982)
So have we talked about incest yet? Maybe a little, you say?  Well here's a little more. Or a lot more, really.
In this remake of the vastly different original film, Irena Gallier (Nastassja Kinski) reconnects with her brother Paul (Malcolm McDowell) and discovers the hidden truth about her family heritage: they are a family of werecats - and her parents were brother and sister. Confused, Irena begins a relationship with Oliver (John Heard), conveniently a zookeeper. She pushes him away, knowing that if she consummates the relationship she will turn into a leopard. Eventually though, Oliver knows what he wants and ties Irena down to the bed and has his way with her. A very erotic film from start to finish, Cat People earns a spot on this list with very little effort. /CH


RE-ANIMATOR (1985)
Stuart Gordon’s classic campy adaptation of an H.P. Lovecraft story concerns Dr. Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs), who is fascinated with the idea of bringing the dead back to life through scientific means. His roommate, Dan (Bruce Abbott), and his girlfriend, Megan (Barbara Crampton), are concerned about the nature of West’s experiments; but not quite as concerned as their anatomy professor, Dr. Hill (David Gale). When Dr. Hill tries to put a stop to West, West ends up decapitating him and using him in an experiment. It works, and Dr. Hill takes the opportunity to act on his desire for Megan, strapping her down naked to a table, his body carrying his severed head in its hands… Now that’s what I call good head!/MR


*Editor's note:  There are still a slew of kinky films that we haven't touched upon as of yet, which can only mean one thing....Part Three.  Watch for it.
