Valentine’s Day horror movies: A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014)

Yes, this makes three vampire movies in a row. Once you watch them, though, you’ll understand why they all deserve to be on this list. A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night actually made our best independent films on Netflix list a while back. The follows a skateboarding vampiress as she stalks evil men in a rundown Iranian town. Then she meets Arash.

Arash takes care of his drug addicted father, and it leads to his own existence slowly deteriorating. When he meets the beautiful unnamed vampire, though, both of their lives begin to change. I can’t divulge much more of the plot without spoiling the ending, but by the time the credits roll, this romantic horror movie will remind you this Valentine’s Day that true love exists.

Valentine’s Day horror movies: Spring (2014)

We mentioned Spring earlier during the discussion of After Midnight, but it really deserves its own place on this list. After losing his mother to cancer, Evan sets out on a journey to Italy where he meets the beautiful Louise. The two get caught up in a hot and heavy relationship—all while something deadly lurks in the streets.

This flick falls into the body horror genre, so the squeamish should prepare themselves. If your significant other has some trouble stomaching Spring, remind them that the deeper message of the film is true love. And in the end, that’s exactly what makes this romantic horror movie perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Whether you’re in a long-term relationship or you’ve yet to feel the sting of Cupid’s arrow, these films will no doubt tug at your heart strings. Of course, this is only one author’s opinion.
