10 Horror Movies That You May Not Watch With Your Girlfriend

seekerbandbanner

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and love and romance are in the air! The cupids are flitting by, the chocolate factories are working nonstop, and rose bushes are pushing as hard as they can to pop out one glorious flower after another.

And just in time for this day of love and affection, Seeker vocalist Bryce Lucien put together his Top 10 Horror Movies That You Wouldn’t May Not Watch With Your Girlfriend. Trust me when I say that Lucien has not only done his research but that he’s come up with a list of films that only a true horror fan could know!

On top of that, we are excited to premiere the lyric video for the band’s latest single “Alone”. You can watch it below and download the song for free here.

Seeker will be touring with I, Omega and Corelia. All tour dates can be seen below.

10. The Piano Teacher (2001) by Michael Haneke
Not necessarily a “horror” movie, but Michael Haneke’s cold, unflinching, and sadistic depiction of what happens to a woman after a lifetime of sexual repression makes this, if nothing else, one of the most awkward films in recent memory. Definitely not a good one to bring home to the lady…unless of course she’s into rape and throws up every time she…well you know.

9. Possession (1981) by Andrzej Zulawski
Hardly even a film for the most seasoned horror junkie, Andrzej Zulawski’s “Possession” is a difficult one to watch. Isabelle Adjani gives one of the most menacing and uncomfortable performances in cinematic history and Sam Neill’s descent into complete madness is as brilliant as it is excruciating to watch. This is a dark, bizarre movie that starts at 10 and only gets more extreme. Recommended for dates if your girlfriend is into squid porn, demonic miscarriages, suicide, and an otherworldly Sam Neill doppelganger.

8. Breaking The Waves (1996) by Lars Von Trier
You shouldn’t watch this with your girlfriend because this is the most depressing goddamn movie ever created. Having said that, Lars Von Trier is a personal favorite and this movie is absolutely brilliant. If you don’t sob uncontrollably after watching this movie, then you have no soul.

7. The Devils (1971) by Ken Russell
A film about sexual repression, religious fervor, and superstition, this is not a film for the feint of heart. Stay away unless forced enemas, nuns masturbating with the charred remains of former obsessions, and bizarre, depraved exorcisms do it for your significant other. The final scene in this film is incredibly menacing.

6. Martyrs (2008) by Pascal Laugier
So dark. So brutal. So unbelievably evil. I always take this movie with me on tour, and without fail we’ll stay with someone or have a band on the package that think they can handle this. It always upsets everyone beyond all belief. While it’s beautiful in it’s own miserable way this is not recommended unless your girlfriend is a complete hardass.

5. Salo or the 120 Days of Sodom (1975) by Pier Paolo Pasolini
115 minutes of sodomy, rape, torture, and the “Circle of Shit”…enough said.

4. Irreversible (2002) by Gaspar Noe
Gaspar Noe’s disorienting camera work is enough to make this film upsetting, but add in an incredibly depraved scene set in a gay S&M nightclub and one of the most astoundingly brutal murders ever filmed and you have one of the most extreme works of art imaginable. And then there’s the rape scene…that 9 minute long unflinching, heartbreaking rape scene. Gaspar Noe hates you and your girlfriend. Keep this away on Valentine’s Day.

3. Antichrist (2009) by Lars Von Trier
Lars Von Trier’s second film to make my top 10 list and for good reason…this is one of the most sexually brutal films ever created. Your girl will not touch you for days after watching this film. I have learned from experience.

2. In A Glass Cage (1987) by Augusti Villaronga
Unrelentingly bleak. Utterly miserable. Monstrously disturbing. This is the kind of film that you will be ashamed of yourself for watching. There are few movies that explore the darkest places of the human psyche more intensely than this one. If your girlfriend is down to watch this movie with you then you should definitely leave her because she’s probably planning on killing you in your sleep.

1. Serbian Film (2010) by Srdan Spasojevic
You will never want to look at a girl ever again.

  • mikeknowskarate

    i dunno how but my gf thought a serbian film was boring. i thought it was pretty damn good.

    • flesheater24

      she thought it was boring ? damn. You sure she wasn’t closing her eyes the whole time. I’ll admit it was pretty boring but once that baby fuckin scene came the whole movie took a turn for the worst and went right into hell.

      • anezka

        I did not think it was totally boring, but it was in some parts. I don’t think it was that good and extreme either. It was okay enough. Btw, I’m a girl and I watched carefully all the scenes. =)

  • flesheater24

    Damn what an awesome list I heard of all those movies but didn’t see In A Glass Cage, The Devils, The Piano Teacher, Possession, Breaking The Waves. But I am now. A serbian film was the most fucked up movie I ever seen it even beat salo. martyars was sick too :) He should of added the divide as a bonus film. LOL that movie was fucked. Can’t wait to watch these films to bad girls I kno aren’t into this shit LOl one day I’ll fine a girl who is amazing and loves to be disturbed like me :P

    • diapers

      +1 for The Divide. IMO one of the most depressing films ever.

      • rgold

        I liked “The Divide,” too. I never really hear it talked about much tho.

  • Jamie311

    Great list. Nice to see some love for Possession. Saw it last week and it blew me away.

    • TravisBickelsMohawk

      It’s insanely underrated. I adore this film and wish more people would get to see it.

  • Ditamydear

    Sexual horror fascinates me to no end, so this is a great list in my opinion. But I would have to call it “horror movies you wouldn’t watch with your boyfriend”. He would probably be pretty unhappy if I had him watch any of these with me. In his defense, he isn’t a horror fan to begin with.

    • rgold

      Lol, I think there is allot of truth to this. Most of my female friends had a much easier time watching “Irreversible,” then my fellow male friends. Come to think of it, the same holds true for “Antichrist.” I also like this list. I’ve seen everything listed but “The Devils” which I’ve had a hard time finding.

      • Ditamydear

        The Devils is a very good movie. It’s crazy and depressing, but good non the less. It’s available to buy on Amazon, or you can probably find it streaming online.

  • huntermc

    I’ve seen about half of these – I’ll have to add the rest to my “must see” list.

  • coldblood

    There’s some I need to see. May be throw in some Antfarm Dickhole for comic relief. Yes, that is a real movie.

    • rgold

      Bill Zebub on the same list as Lars von Trier. I’m pretty sure that would be a absolute first.

  • Satanarkist

    i would add Nekromantik to that list !

  • niceguyeddie1971

    What a fucking list! Bravo my man!

  • http://www.facebook.com/speedrazor Stephen Lambrechts

    Hilariously, my wife and I have seen almost every film on this list together. That includes the top 6 choices.

  • http://www.facebook.com/chewy.chew.1 Chewy Chew

    I am a girl that can’t find a guy to watch these films with me… hmmm, I may have answered my own concern!

    Although a Serbian Film is one that I can’t even imagine watching with a friend. It’s the only film I’ve ever wished I could un-watch.

  • dirtyghettok

    You lucky son of a b***hes… I’ve never dated a women that could watch any type of horror film… Sheesh, one girl even asked whats wrong with me when we watched part of ‘Hostel’ together.

    • anezka

      Hostel? Hahahaha…
      But it’s actually difficult to find people in general who like horror films. I’ve read once that it’s because it’s only a very specific kind of audience who enjoy this genre. They have to be people who know the “it’s all a movie” enough, so they don’t freak out, and they have to be into the movie enough to get involved and feel something. Anything off of these extremes, and the person will not like the genre.

      • AndrewSoukup24

        My one buddy is a pussy like that…he wouldn’t even borrow Trick r Treat from me….now that is a vagina for sure.

    • AndrewSoukup24

      My girl loved Hostel you must date some prude chicks man.

  • Alabama-Sharp

    One of the better lists I’ve seen. You’ve probably seen I Stand Alone, too… Kudos!… and happy Valentine’s day…

  • AndrewSoukup24

    I could watch all these with my gf she loves horror shit but just like me she isn’t into movies where chicks get raped….honestly I haven’t seen many of these movies before but I do intend on watching Antichrist in the near future..but honestly movies with rape are just strange and never make you feel comfortable but some movies go way to far with it to even make it enjoyable..I don’t think Martyrs needs to be on here…A Serbian Film is just wrong in many ways and I don’t say like most people I can unwatch it but unless you like baby’s getting raped right out of the womb or seeing cocks all te time with little kids also on screen at the time then this movies for you…as far as all these others go they all include rape and I think I will pass….Dead Girl could possibly make this list.

  • BadCrumbs

    I own every one of these films and have watched all of them with my girlfriend and together we love them all.

  • dr.lamb

    My cousin had his first- let us call it “2nd base”- date with his new girlfriend and they decided to rent a movie. Absolutely clueless about the content, he took “Irreversible”. Haha, that was one awkward date. I told him that he was an idiot. Very harsh, I know, but how stupid can you be not to even read the synopsis on the package ?
    Still, he was lucky and she was not deterred. But later, she was revealed to be a total bitch, so there is th

  • Mr.Mirage

    Lars is the Man, reaching deeper into the human ugly than most anyone else, ever… and where in the HELL did you get The Devils on DVD? Blu-Ray? Did it have the Jesus Rape scene??? My all time bar-none fave Ken Russell film!! Brilliant in every, despicable manner, Oliver Reed’s best (? maybe, discuss??) performance.

  • TravisBickelsMohawk

    Uh, I own six of these movies. And I’m a female. Blow me.

  • ihearthorror

    Challenge Accepted! I’m watching all of the movies on the list I haven’t seen (mainly the old ones). I will be writing about it one my FB page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/I-Heart-Horror/338327476286206

    Please like my page, I need to get more people suggesting horror movies for the horror junkies to see.

    To the girl who thought Serbian film was boring… you should probably seek therapy.

    • ihearthorror

      Dang, there’s actually 5 on there I haven’t seen. Looks like my lonely Valentine’s day may be a little busier than I expected!

  • sawyerbecks23

    I haven’t heard of most of these films. I gotta step up my game.Gonna try to watch some of these.

  • Falk

    I’m sick of hearing abut martyrs. That movie was stupid. It had a good beginning but completely f*^%ed itself over halfway through.

  • ill_children

    My wife and I had a laugh at this list because we’ve already watched 5/10 with 2 others in our collection waiting to be enjoyed. Good list.

  • Vaginadentata

    A serbian film sucked, the part where he rapes his own son is slightly unsettling but that’s it. Antichrist’s only redeeming quality is when she cuts her clitoris off with rusty scissors. So, if you’re going to title something in a way that suggests women would be frightened by these films than men, choose better horror movies, ya dild.

  • Vaginadentata

    more frightened*
