Looking back through movie history, it's clear to see that 'horror' and 'sex' are inextricably linked. From Friday the 13th to Cabin in the Woods, sexual lust and violence have always gone hand in hand, with as many sin and corruption-of-innocence metaphors as you'll find in the Old Testament.

It's no wonder, then, why so many cosplayers have chosen to tap into their more seductive sides when emulating the terrifying outfits of these legendary horror icons. What follows are some of the sexiest serial killer cosplays ever committed to film.

But remember, genre conventions apply: make sure not to succumb to your dark desires, or you'll surely be the next victim to get the axe...

1. Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family

The surreal and stoic daughter of the Addams family looks more Japanese schoolgirl than troubled sociopath, though the costume is undeniably awesome!
