View Full Version : Suspiria and porn???

OK, I saw something pretty damn funny last night and had to share.

The local "art house" theater, which normally shows foreign films and classic revivals, showed two 3-D Disco Porn movies from the 70s. Yes, it was Boogie Nights for real.

Having never seen 3-D porn, I decided to go. There was actually a rather large crowd, apparently as curious as I was. Anyway, in one of the movies, Hard Candy, there was a scene with some geek at a computer. It was supposedly a "plot" scene (back in the 70s, they actually tried to put a story into adult movies), and in the background was the famous (and rare) Suspiria poster. You know, the one with the letters that looked like lungs, and the tagline "the only thing more terrifying...."

It was a 1977 movie, and they probably just tacked that poster up and threw it out afterwards...damn.....

As a semi-link, how about "porn in horror films"! The only example which springs to mind is the cinema scene in "An American Werewolf in London". There have to be other examples, though. Anybody able to add to this?

The only one that I can think of from the top of my head is on Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter. It is minimal, but that annoying fellow with the curly hair finds a very old pornographic movie in the cabin and watches it. I don't know if it could be considered a 'porn' but still...

I find that ironic because Suspiria is one of the few horror films without nudity and sex.

Wasn't there a breast somewhere in Suspiria?

Had glimpses of pornography in them. I'm sure there are others, but I can't think of them right now.

And of course, Karen (Dee Wallace) meets Eddie in a viewing booth at an adult bookstore at the opening of THE HOWLING.
