15 Movies and TV Show About Love (Between People Who Want to Murder Each Other)
Slap slap kiss, kiss kiss slap taken to its deadly extreme. The feel-bad movie collection.
There are so many movies about the joys of love, but so few about hate. About looking at someone you want to spend your life with, and wanting to pour milk all over their bowl of spaghetti. Wanting to break one of their Hummel figurines. Wanting to tie their shoelaces together and then challenge them to a race. Maybe that’s because it’s generally a sign of a horribly toxic relationship if you look at someone you love and want to hurt them — and movies try to avoid abusive or toxic relationships unless one of them is literally a card-carrying member of Dr. Evil’s Evil Band of Evil Misfits, so there are not many depictions of horrible relationships outside of emo band catalogs of the 2000s.
Either way, while plotting to murder the person you love most in the world (presumably while wearing some kind of black cape at an opera with predominently red themes), you can only listen to Good Charlotte’s “My Bloody Valentine” or Avenged Sevenfold’s “7 Minutes in Heaven” so many times before it gets boring — so here are some movies that are perfectly full of that odd mix of horror and romance where love turns to hate turns to violence.
Forget everything you used to know and stick around to see some of the most blood-filled and bared-teeth romances around, from cabin lesbians to pretty basic straight relationships.
Sharpen those knives and collect those zip ties while watching these movies and shows all about love gone murderously wrong (or horribly right? No, hold on, definitely the first one).
