Some people prefer their sex, horror, and religion separate. Others, not so much. In his latest book, Doug Cowan explores one of the most prevalent—but least discussed—intersections of horror culture.

From creature features that reinforce conventional notions of sexuality to indie horror flicks that ask what happens when different gods come knocking, from nunsploitation to the sacrificial body, find out what happens when sex, horror, and the religious imagination come together.
