TOP Best Erotic Thrillers

by aef-6 | created - 20 Nov 2010 | updated - 3 weeks ago | Public

Its more like a list with the ones ive seen and they are not that bad. The first 107, i mostly like and ive rated them 7 or higher, the others are with mixed feelings rated from me with 6 and 5. Theres a lot more ive seen made for tv and stv, but ive rated them below 5 so i wont list them.

I will include some movies like Malice, Dead Calm, No Way Out... that fit loosely in the Erotic category.
