The Best of... Bad Romance!

There are plenty of Horror movies out there that deal with the subject of romance in all of its forms, and they come in many flavors: Doomed love stories; tales of obsession; taboo romance; or disturbing sexual encounters that involve necrophilia, inter-species erotica, familial relations, or any number of uncomfortable, nasty and inappropriate "love" that is just easier to dub Bad Romance.

  • Many of the movies listed below have romantic themes running through them, while others may only have a scene or two that fit the Bad Romance Bill.
  • All of them are either tragic or disturbing. Or both.  
  • Some of them gave us nightmares, and have made us afraid of love. 

If you're in the mood for some twisted romance, then any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. Dracula, Let The Right One In, and Spring are the most conventional love stories in the group, where as Cemetery Man, Haute Tension, and The Loved Ones land on the twisted side of the fence. They all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Bad Romance Sub-Genre though, so why not enjoy them all!

Below are the rest of the best of Bad Romance flicks. Keep in mind that no "Best of" list is ever perfect, but merely a solid starting point for anyone looking to watch some great flicks, and in this case, great flicks of a particular type.

*Most of the links go to Amazon so that you can stream or grab yourself a copy of the movies; our review of the movie (when applicable); or in the case of some of the older & more obscure titles, IMDB, because they simply aren't available to stream or purchase.
