The genre of ‘Horrex’ films has been around for quite some time in Bollywood, but not as much as it has suddenly gained steam. With film after film bringing together horror and adequate doses of sex, this genre is steadily on the rise these days.

The Ramsay Brothers were the ones who immortalised this genre of films, as far as Bollywood is concerned; and despite most of their films having been passed off as B-Grade ones, horrex is now back in fashion. The trailer of Alone, which released a while back, is another entrant to the horrex genre. Here’s taking a look at ten of Bollywood’s best films, which have brought together horror and sex.
Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover’s upcoming film, from what it’s being marketed as, has horror and much sex in it. Bipasha being the horror queen that she has now come to be known as, and Karan’s unabashed sexuality – makes Alone one that brings together horror and sex.
Ragini MMS 2:
Ekta Kapoor cast Sunny Leone in the sequel to Ragini MMS, and the movie turned out to be more sex than horror. Well, with a porn star as the lead, generous offerings of sex were but natural – so went the filmmakers’ thoughts. Add to that the oomph factor – that Sunny is synonymous with – and the film went on to churn an impressive amount of money.
Directed by Pawan Kripalani and produced by Ekta Kapoor, this paranormal film revolves around a couple who go to a secluded house in a forest to spend a weekend together, and have a horrible experience. The film was partly based on the 2007 Paranormal Activity, and the film made news for its treatment of the genre of horror. Ragini MMS involved some good amount of sex, too.
Starring Bipasha Basu, Emraan Hashmi and Esha Gupta, Raaz 3 was a film that raked in much moolah, thanks to its content – horror and sex. The star power of the lead actors, too, added to the film’s business.

Vikram Bhatt’s 1920, which starred Rajneesh Duggal and Adah Sharma, was a tale that incorporated horror and sex. Despite several scenes being veritable lift-offs of the 1973 Hollywood horror film The Exorcist, the film did quite well.
Starring Hemant Birje, Jasmin and Sahila Chadha in pivotal roles, this 1988 film by the Ramsay Brothers was pretty (in)famous for its amalgamation of horror and sex.
Again from the Ramsay Brothers, Purani Haveli hit the theatres in 1989, and was instantly recognised as an offering from the Ramsays, thanks to its content. Dealing with what the Ramsays were the best in – horror and sex – Purani Haveli starred Deepak Parashar, Amita Nangia, Neelam Mehra and others.
This 1984 film by the Ramsay Brothers is still considered a classic, as far as the genre of horrex is concerned. Starring actors like Mohnish Bahl, Puneet Issar and Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Purana Mandir dealt with the story of the monster-demon, Samri.
Starring Kunika, Aruna Irani and Manjeet Kullar, Bandh Darwaza was a 1990 film from the Ramsay Brothers. This film had a vampire called Neola, who went around hunting for the blood of fresh young women. Yes, goes without saying, this Ramsay Brothers’ creation, too, had a lot of what they were famous for – horror and sex.

From the Ramsay Brothers, yet again, Dashat is a 1981 film starring Sarika, Nadira, Om Shivpuri and others. The plot revolved around a mad scientist, who transforms into a bloodthirsty monster every night, thanks to an expreiment gone awfully wrong.
