The Horror of Sex


It’s not often you see a horror movie about a sexually transmitted disease gone wild. And really, who would want to see something like that on the big screen, let alone their privates and face after they scratch themselves and then rub their eyes?


Contracted, a new horror flick flaring up on November 22, 2013 on IFC, deals with just such a topic. Here are the icky details: “A young girl who has a one-night stand with a stranger, contracting what she thinks is a sexually transmitted disease, but it is actually something far worse. As things begin to crumble around her, she’s sent on a disturbing and bloodcurdling journey, sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seats. With nail-biting suspense and frightening twists, Contracted is a horror film for those who think they’ve seen it all.”

I’m thinking I don’t want to see it all. Conditions like Rump Rot or Greasy Crease isn’t on my go-to list of horror genres to watch. How come they just can’t make a nice, happy movie about super painful rug burns or achy tennis elbow? Now there’s some fascinating themes to explore.
