Lingerie on Film: Halloween edition!

Lingerie on Film: Halloween edition!

Happy Halloween! In honor of this, my favorite holiday of the year, I thought I’d post a few photos of lingerie in horror films through the ages. From scantily-clad coeds in slasher flix to silver screen damsels in distress, there is certainly plenty of material to choose from. It’s interesting to chart the evolution of lingerie style and the inherent implication about society’s attitude towards sex in different eras through a cinematic lens. I’ll leave it up to you to pick your favorite…mine is above (Tim Curry in Jim Sharman’s Rocky Horror Picture Show, 1975.)
