Passion inspires. It can drive the creation of beauty but can also cause profound pain. Crimes of passion are especially heartbreaking because intense passion make lovers blind to the outcome of their actions. Their love and lust can spin them into a state where reason and logic are no longer in charge. Revenge, reaction, and punishment are the only things that matter to someone blinded by their passion. Blinded by lust, consequences of actions, long or short term, are not anywhere on the mind of someone in the throes of rage. Where sex meets drama and horror, these crimes of passion make for engaging cinema.
