Dread Central's Top 10 Greatest Horrific Couples

The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
The Frankenstein Monster and The Bride

All he ever wanted was to be loved. That's all. We could have saved the time and effort of a lot of torch-wielding angry mobs if we could have just found someone to love the Frankenstein monster. Even The Bride that was created just for him was a little put off by the guy. And that was it. That was the last straw. When another monster created from reassembled and reanimated body parts thought he was too freakish to bear, the Frankenstein monster (always with love in his heart) sent Henry and Elizabeth away and took down the tower with himself, his bride and the diabolical Dr. Pretorius inside. A true case of the dangers of unrequited love.

"The Munsters" and "The Addams Family" (1964)
Herman and Lily Munster/Gomez and Morticia Addams

When we talk about famous horrific couples, you have to consider Herman and Lily of "The Munsters" and Gomez and Morticia of "The Addams Family." Both legendary series hit the airwaves in 1964 and ran for just two seasons each. However, unlike the attempts to reanimate "The Munsters" (which never really took off), Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester and the rest of The Addams Family had a pair of successful films in the 90's starring Angelica Huston, Raul Julia and a young Christina Ricci as the memorable Wednesday. Although they were comedic characters, let's be honest; Lily and Herman, as well as Morticia and Gomez, have to be considered among the most memorable and beloved monstrous couples ever.

okay Vanvance1 I completely agree with you on Bride of Chucky. it is sooooo badly underrated, its a brilliant sequel thats in a way really a dark romantic-comedy that needs much much more attention. . . seed on the other hand, that one was complete shit, your on your own with that one

Damn is Bride of Chucky badly underrated. Same with Seed. These are brilliant satiric black comedies that didn't earn half the attention they deserve. Absolute classics.
