Immoral Tales: European Sex & Horror Movies 1956-1984 is the title of a 1994 non fiction book by Cathal Tohill and Pete Tombs, that won the Bram Stoker Award for Best Non-Fiction.

The book covers European exploitation cinema with profiles of Jesús Franco, José Larraz, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Jean Rollin, Walerian Borowczyk and Jose Bénazéraf. It is notable for being one of the few books to concentrate solely on the sex/horror subgenre of cinema and is currently out of print.

Reviews[edit]

"The book affords a comprehensive, fascinating, and even loving look at the sleazy, gory, sexy, blasphemous underside of European cinema" (Mike Tribby in Booklist)
