It’s easy to see the appeal of Valentine’s Day. After all, love is great. It’s also easy to see Valentine’s Day in a much more contemptuous light. Luckily, for the countless misanthropes who have little time for romance, February 14th comes with a surprisingly decent assortment of movies at the other end of the spectrum. The films below use the occasion of Valentine’s Day or the theme of romance as a springboard from which to explore the gruesome, horrific things that are sadly absent from The Notebooks and When Harry Met Sallys of the world. So bust out your library card, check out these horror movies, and have a happy Valentine’s Day in your own cynical way.  

 For more great movies, make sure to check out the offerings of your local branch and Kanopy.
