Another Valentine's Day is upon us with Friday being the day to apparently shower your loved one with affection as if you've never bestowed love upon them before. Seriously: What the hell is Valentine's Day about?
While you ponder that question, allow me – your bitter, jaded writer – to guide you through what I consider the top 14 doomed romances in horror. The genre has a penchant for showing the dark underbelly of love – not in the Blue Valentine kind of way (which carries its own brand of horror), but in a grotesque, often hyper-violent, fashion.
The relationships reflected here were either extremely unhealthy to begin with or romances that gradually turned sour. I included one entry that was purely based on "Yeah, that will NEVER WORK" because I'm jaded…and bitter. And because it's almost Valentine's Day.
