Erotic Thriller Mission

The bastard child of film noir, born in the era of shoulder pads, smoke machines, and Fredericks of Hollywood.
Focusing on big screen and DTV/Cable titles from 1984-1999, this is a study guide that includers influencers, films beyond the timeline, and titles in adjacent genres. I'm only adding, not editing down. If I watch it, or plan to, in the service of erotic thriller expertise, it's going on the list.
We all need a mission in life. This is mine.
