It’s been a whole year since we looked at cinema’s most terrifying sex scenes, so we thought we’d take a look back at the most graphic sex scenes ever depicted in horror films! Obviously, everything that follows will be incredibly NSFW and contain some serious spoilers.
Friday the 13th (2009)
I don’t think I’ve ever laughed as hard in a horror movie as I did when I heard Travis Van Winkle tell Julianna Guill that her “tits were stupendous” and that she had “perfect nipple placement.” This is a ridiculous and fairly graphic sex scene! Unfortunately, the scene (pictured above) isn’t on YouTube, but you can find it on Pornhub (shocker), so that gives you an idea of just how graphic it is.
Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday
Last one from this franchise, but while Jason Goes To Hell is arguably the worst in the franchise (though I know it has its defenders), it features one of the most graphic sex scenes and kills out of all of the films (if you watch the unrated version).
Even though it was filmed with porn star body doubles, the opening scene of Lars Von Trier’s Antichrist is still extremely graphic. Actual penetration is seen. Of course, this is nothing to the third act clitoris snipping and blood ejaculation. The actual pornographic images are censored in the below clip. It is YouTube after all!
Don’t Look Now
This sex scene between Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie is still considered graphic even by today’s standards, but it is a beautiful moment in Nicolas Roeg’s bleak and haunting film.
Salò, or The 120 Days of Sodom
It’s difficult to pin down just one graphic scene from Salo, which isn’t technically a horror film, but it is one of the most horrifying films I’ve ever seen. It is a difficult film to watch, but should be required viewing for everyone (just my opinion!) Really, the whole movie could qualify for this list, but here’s a small sample of what you’re in for if you decide to put this one on:
As graphic as it is hilarious, Hatchet 2 features one of the funniest deaths in all of horror history: AJ Bowen gets decapitated while having sex with Alexis Peters doggy style. After he is decapitated, his body begins convulsing, thereby hammering into Peters even harder, until she realizes she is getting penetrated by a corpse. It’s ridiculous and funny and disturbing all at the same time.
While it’s not actual sex, it does feature a woman’s brain being eaten by a mutant penis as she attempts to perform fellatio on him. Fun!
A Serbian Film
Newborn baby rape and incest. What more do you need? A Serbian Film is one of the most difficult films I’ve ever had to watch, but I kind of love it. Start the video at the 11-minute mark to see the graphic scene. This is one of the biggest spoilers on this list so if you haven’t seen the film beware!
The Last House On The Left
It was a tough choice between this and I Spit On Your Grave, but in the end this one “won.” Both the original Wes Craven film and its remake feature rape scenes that are difficult to endure, but I think I have to give the edge to the remake on this one. The original makes you feel gross just because of the filming quality, but the remake (especially the unrated cut) features an extended rape scene that is absolutely grueling.
Tetsuo: The Iron Man
I wouldn’t necessarily call this one graphic. It’s just weird. The Iron Man’s body slowly morphs into metal, and in one of the weirdest scenes of the film, he discovers that his penis has become a large power drill. He proceeds to rape his girlfriend with it, killing her (obviously).
Obviously, this is just a small sample of graphic sex scenes in horror movies. I didn’t even mention Species or Otto! What are some of your favorites (if that’s not too weird a question to ask)?
