Films exploring taboo subjects have existed for nearly as long as the genre of film has existed. The former is remarkable for also containing the first strip tease to be put to film, a feature that was highly risque at the time. It was also fabulously popular. So it is unsurprising that other filmmakers would want to follow in its wake and push the boundary of what is culturally acceptable. As a result, explicit visual depictions of sexuality and violence have become commonplace over the decades—though precisely what constitutes an explicit depiction will vary depending on time and place.

Whether bonded by a love of B-movie badness or semi-pretentious art films, we horror fans love just how varied the genre can be. And so, much like the makeup of a My Chemical Romance concert, horror movie audiences often encompass edgy gore bros, defiant women, and the unrepentantly gay. Though the state of on-screen lesbianism is fraught at best, some of its earliest and most inventive iterations lie in horror. Sometimes they kiss multiple times throughout the whole movie. A lot of the time, they die. But every time, I love the absolute shit out of each and every one of them.
