Best Scary Movies for a Romantic Night With Your Partner

If you have not yet seen a scary movie with that special someone, you have been missing out on something huge! Simply put, watching something scary together raises pretty much the same chemicals in the body as when you are infatuated or have freshly fallen in love.

As Psychology Advisor, Art Markman, Ph.D., puts it, “If you do some scary activities, the main thing that is going to happen is that it will increase your overall arousal level. You are much more likely to be more passionate about anything when your arousal is high than when it is low.” This typically leads to you two holding each other very close, and the scarier it gets the closer you get. We are sure you get the picture, right?

Well, talking about scary movies, what can be a better day to watch a horror film that that of Halloween? Now, all you need to do is pick the right movie and let the scary “romantic” times begin! Here are a few tried and true favourites.
