The Greatest Horror Love Stories (In my humble opinion)

Compromise is Key

Sometimes he wants to watch a romance, you want to watch a horror. So why not compromise? There’s no reason you can’t have both. I mean, love can be horrific and horror can be beautiful. It’s all about the passion, right? One of these horror love stories might just provide you with the movie you both need.

Bride of Chuckyhorror love stories

Even the spirits of the dead, inhabiting dolls, can find a way to love.

This was the first one that sprang to mind when I decided to write this post. And whilst I don’t find dolls particularly scary, this is a murder spree between two lovers, with a healthy dose of comedy.

Only Lovers Left Alive

Marriage can sometimes feel like it’s gone on forever. And in the case of these two vampires, it’s been a very long time. Now living apart, this story is romance and gore in one captivating movie, particularly after her wild little sister returns.

Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton star.

The Fly

A beautiful story about a woman who falls in love with a scientist whose experiment, unfortunately, goes very wrong.

Let the Right One in

What wouldn’t you do for the love of your life? Cute and violent, this teenage romance between a bullied boy and a vampire girl will get you in the feels.

 

Hellraiser

Forbidden Desire can get you in all kinds of trouble. Like finding corpses for your husband’s dead brother so he can regenerate.

Crimson Peak

Newlyweds in the old family home begin to get to know each other. But with the husband’s sister in residence, and the ghost of the bride’s mother issuing warnings, their honeymoon period does not follow the usual path.

Bram Stoker’s Draculahorror love stories

Dracula is a hopeless romantic, yearning to find love again. Traveling from Transylvania to London, inspired by a photograph of Mina who he believes is the reincarnation of his true love , Dracula brings seduction and terror.

Shaun of the Dead

This gory zombie fest is all about saving the girl and getting to the pub.

It’s rather funny too.

Warm Bodies

When a zombie virus takes hold, the chance encounter of an uninfected human girl and the zombie who saves her sparks a love that is just a smidge unusual. I mean, having a boyfriend is one thing but having one who is essentially dead is another. But love conquers all right? Their love brings him slowly back to life, and gives the rest of the zombie population hope…

The Mummy

No, not the Tom Cruise version. The original 1932 version. Where the mummy, inadvertently raised from the dead, pursues a woman he believes to be the reincarnation of his lost love. The woman he was embalmed alive for trying to save.
