Dread Central's Top 10 Greatest Horrific Couples
Natural Born Killers (1994)
Mickey and Mallory Knox
My personal favorite on this list, Mickey and Mallory Knox are absolutely batshit crazy. Played brilliantly by Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis in Oliver Stone's film (written by Quentin Tarantino), M & M were an intelligent illustration of just how the media creates celebrity from psychosis. As insane as their initial killing spree was, the film gets even better as the couple become separated, only to pine for each other and work their way back into baby's arms. They may be the scariest couple on this list because they are the couple with the most potential to become reality.
Bride of Chucky (1998)
Chucky and Tiff
When Charles Lee Ray transformed his spirit into the body of the Good Guy Doll which became the infamous Chucky, I'm quite sure he never thought he'd be pulling down tail as hot as Tiffany. Played, memorably by the lovely Jennifer Tilly, Tiff came along midway through the Child's Play series and breathed much needed life and a completely new angle into a film franchise that had previously been a one-trick pony. Chucky and Tiff were great together. What could be more unnerving than seeing not one, but two giant-headed, three-foot tall, scalpel-wielding puppets show up at your door with bad intentions? Tiff would actually go on and become the dominant character in the series (as a good woman can do) and even brought little Glen/Glenda into the picture.
