How to have a Horrifying Date Night (In a Good Way): 10 Best Scary Movies for Dates Does your idea of a perfect movie date mean more screaming into a bowl of popcorn than snuggling over one? If horror is more your speed for date night than romantic comedies or action thrillers, you’re not alone! Here are just some of the best scary movies for dates: The Sixth Sense The classic movie where Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment made us wonder just what, exactly, is going on, features some truly creepy scenes. The best part about these super creepy scenes? They are sure to make for some hand grabbing during the most suspenseful moments! This movie works best if your date has never seen it before. Return of The Living Dead Looking to inject a little humor into your horror movie viewing? Try this 80’s classic about zombies, from way back when, before zombies were the biggest craze in post-apocalyptic television, film, and literature. This movie is perfect for laughing while you scream! Night of the Living Dead No matter which way your date goes, this one’s a classic, and well worth watching! The Shining The relationship between Jack Torrance and his wife is far from romantic, but the movie presents enough interesting psychology conversations to stoke some enlightening discussions for the two of you! Jaws A movie that focuses on the terror of a real world creature rather than the undead or a psychological threat, this movie tells the Captain Ahab-like tale of the Amity Island, Mass.-based fishing boat captain who doesn’t know when to quit when going up against – gasp! – a great white shark with an evil temperament. The Thing A classic tale of mistrust and growing paranoia set in the vast emptiness of the Antarctic tundra, this movie stars a young Kurt Russel as a dashing scientist who is fighting…. The thing. But what is the thing? Or, more importantly, who? Friday the 13th The quintessential movie for those who love thrillers, Friday the 13th has long cemented a place in the horror movie Hall of Fame. Take a stroll back to the 1980’s and visit an innocent summer camp, where chaos and murder are about to wreak havoc on some teenagers who are just having a little fun… The Blair Witch Project Before reality TV and “mockumentary” style television like The Office were around, this movie was a fresh slice of horror delivered on a very low budget. Shot in “found-footage” style, the movie even had young Millenials questioning whether the whole thing might be real, back in the early days of the internet. Scream A movie that is full of future well-known names (Drew Barrymore, Courteney Cox), Scream is also the perfect watch for a date night – that’s exactly what it was used for when it came out in the late 1990s. Paranormal Activity The ultimate in “What’s going to happen next?!” emotions. If there is a movie more likely to make your date jump into your arms in suspense, share it with us in the comments!
