Top Alternative Valentines Movies

By on 14/02/2014

Valentines Day is here and here is the official top alternative valentines movies – love stories with the occasional splatter of blood and descent into the dark!!!


A widower takes an offer to screen girls at a special audition, arranged for him by a friend to find him a new wife. This takes a turn for the worst when his new love of his life isn’t what she seems!!! Damn this film is messed up!!!



This intense Nicolas Winding Refn movie chronicles the love between Leo and his girlfriend Louise which appears sealed when she is expecting a baby, but things go horribly wrong


Blue Velvet

Beneath the mystery, intrigue, surrealism violence and the nitrous oxide inhaling Dennis Hopper are 2 developing love stories – one very weird in its nature



Behind the minimalistic dialogue, car chases, violence and shootouts Drive is in fact a turbulent love story between Driver & Irene




Fight Club

If you think about it – Fight Club is a romantic black comedy, Marla is at the centre of this movie



A love story of the Apple age. A lonely writer develops an unlikely relationship with his newly purchased operating system that’s designed to meet his every need.


Just Another Love Story

This Danish crime thriller is slick. Just think of a retelling of that old Sandra Bullock rom-com Whilst You Were Sleeping, but twisted and dark


The Killer

At the core of this John Woo violent movie is the love story between the hit man and the singer he accidentally blinded, its a great buddy movie as well


Love Exposure

A 4 hour long extreme love story based around perversion, Christianity and religious cults this equally shocking and funny movie needs to be seen to be believed


Natural Born Killers

There’s nothing like going on a tour de force of violences to profess you dying love for your partner


Out of Sight

Part romance, part manhunt, this action comedy romance is full of cool


Revenge: A Love Story

How far would you go for the one you love? Too far



“Adriaaaaaaaaaaaaan”!!!! How could you forget this was a love story at heart


Scott Pilgrim Vs The World

What would you do for love? Would you go to battle with your girlfriend’s 7 evil exes?


Shaun of the Dead

There is nothing like a zombie apocalypse to try and win back you ex girlfriend


Switchblade Romance

Rivers of blood pour in this horror that if you look deep enough is a romance. Way more than its romance are scenes of pure horror. This movie scared me shitless


True Romance

The is nothing like the Sicilian mob, the FBI and a bag full of drugs to get in course of true love


Upstream Color

This is a science fiction love story, full of the weird and wonderful. Difficult to fully understand on the first viewing but full of emotion
