I'm lucky enough to have two of my best friends fall for each other. J&D are awesomely cool and amazing friends but are even better together. I alternate between vomit brought on by cuteness and managing to keep some faith in romantic love alive because of them. So in the spirit of the holidays I'm doing a Top-5 Best and Worst Horror Movie Couples list dedicated to them.
Horror movies may not seem like the place to find love but what makes you commit more than a life or death situation? Nothing. Seriously. Fuck e-harmony and Plenty of Fish. If you want to nab yourself a partner trap your crush in an abandoned mental asylum and see if they aren't willing to agree to anything by the end of the night.
Let's work backwards with how NOT to do it.
Top 5 Worst Horror Movie Couples
#5 Marie and Alexa from Haute Tension (2003)
DO NOT slaughter their entire family and dog. And DO NOT hold them hostage. Y'know... just a thought. It may leave them with no other options for who to turn to but their side of the church is going to look awful sparse at the wedding.
#4 Peter and Joanna Eberhart from The Stepford Wives (1975)
#3 Mina Murray and Jonathan Harker from Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)
#2 Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse from Rosemary's Baby (1968)
#1 Sidney Prescott and Billy Loomis from Scream (1996)
Now... who gets it right?
#5 Ash and Sheila from Army of Darkness (1992)
#4 Mina Murray and Count Dracula from Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)
#3 Jim and Selena from 28 Days Later
#2 Shaun and Liz from Shaun of the Dead (2004)
#1 Oskar and Eli from Let The Right One In
