Valentine’s Day is almost here, and for some, it’s a dreadful day. Cutesy couples hanging all over each other, radio stations playing love songs all day and virtually every TV channel showing one romantic comedy after the other – it’s a bit sickening. For those of you who do not want to spend their day watching sappy movies, I suggest having a terrifying vampire themed movie day! Really make Valentine’s Day suck.

Here are a few V-Day movie suggestions:

John Carpenter’s Vampires
In this badass horror western, a vengeful vampire slayer must retrieve an ancient Catholic relic that, should it be acquired by vampires, will allow them to endure sunlight. Definitely not a romantic comedy.

30 Days of Night
Want a vampire film that will make you afraid to turn off the lights? I suggest 30 Days of Night, a terrifying and bloody film about an Alaskan town overrun with vampires after being plunged into darkness for a month.

Interview with the Vampire
Not a scary vampire movie, but definitely not a sappy romantic comedy – that’s for damn sure. Based on the influential novel by Anne Rice, Interview tells the life story of the vampire Louis.

Fright Night
A horrifying film about a teenager who finds out his next door neighbor is a bloodthirsty vampire. Both the original and the remake are fantastic.

Blade
The story of a half-human half-vampire badass who hunts down and destroys evil bloodsucking vampires. In this film, Blade, with the help of Whistler, must stop Frost, a vampire trying to take over the world. I’d love to spend the day of love with a brutal dhampir. I also suggest checking out Blade: Trinity, it's bloody AND funny (don't worry, there's no romance).

Those are my recommendations for those who want a bloody and scary Valentine’s Day. What are your recommendations?
