This is something i always talk about, at a time when i enjoyed movies like fatal attraction, body double, body heat and basic instinct which is a personal favorite not just for the beauty of sharon stone but for paul verhoeven s effort in this to create the perfect romance thriller film, those voyeuristic erotic movies we used to have back in the day. I saw lately "to catch a thief" and i felt how many scenes between the two leads showed that sexual tension which is demonstrated later on in the film with a rather funny and opportunistic way. Do you guys think that alfred hitchcock created the romance thriller genre and eroticism was added to it during the 70s and 80s which made the softcore thriller movies? Does the internet and access to porn movies etc has made this genre s demise afterall? Or could we have a rise of hitchcock type of thrillers back, or is it a lack of ideas to create new movies something which havent been previously explored before. I would like to add that these kinds of movies are the ones being put on tv during my teenage days i grew up watching these on the moviechannel back then, i liked the femme fatale premise and what could bring to the screen of mystery and suspense. Is the erotic thriller still on a demise and what do u think could make it rise again?
