Hot take: horror is one of the best most romantic genres. It sounds crazy, but hear us out: people need comfort when they’re scared, and comfort is usually found in the arms of someone else. That’s why Valentine’s Day is a great day to stay in and watch some horror with your significant other, who will definitely want to cuddle up while you two watch attractive actors get dismembered.
There are plenty of horror movies that fit Valentine’s Day either directly or indirectly. Think about it: most slasher movies have that one couple you know is going to have sex and then immediately get killed afterward.
If your Valentine’s Day plans are to Netflix and chill, considering skipping the rom-com and opting for a good scare. Here are the best horror movies to watch on Valentine’s Day.
