For Her, Cuddly: QuiET RoOM BeARs
For those dark women in our lives, we can't think of anything more cuddly (and bloody) that they'd love than one of the QuiET RoOM BeARs from the twisted mind of artist Lee Howard. You can check out QuiET RoOM BeARs on Facebook for more info, and they are available for purchase, along with some of Howard's other twisted artwork, here.
For Him, Cuddly: Plush Alien Facehugger
What horror/sci-fi dude wouldn't love to have his very own plush facehugger inspired by the legendary Alien film series? Think of all the cool things you could do with it! Put it on your sleeping cat and post the picture to your favorite social media network. Place it over your toilet during your next get-together with a "Temporarily Out of Service" sign and let hilarity ensue. Whatever your man might do with it, you know he'll love that fuzzy little guy!

For Him or Her, Cuddly: Plush Figures from "The Walking Dead"
If you or your honey is one of the millions of fans that find themselves tied to the tube every blessed Sunday night when AMC throws us a new episode of "The Walking Dead," then you certainly understand how cool this little gift could be. A package that contains a squeezable Rick, Michonne, some walkers and a couple tombstones (even though they don't even bury people in Woodbury anymore) is just the thing to make your bedroom a little more like the zombie apocalypse. Grab "The Walking Dead" plush figures here!
For Her, Traditional - Flowers: Gold-Dipped Black Rose
Sure, anyone can go out and buy a dozen roses for an arm and a leg as a Valentine's Day gift. But come on now, is your horror-loving woman really going to be impressed by that? Unless you bought them a couple of weeks ago and are going to give her a bouquet of dead roses, she's not going to be impressed (and really, the dead roses might not go over that well either). Do yourself a favor and check out this long-stem dipped 24k gold trim black rose. Any Goth/horror chick would love to open this little bit of darkness on Valentine's Day. Trust us. Get your dark blossoms here.
For Him, Traditional: Sex
Trust us, ladies. You don't need to go crazy thinking up Valentine's Day gift ideas. Just throw him a high, hard one. This is all your man is really hoping for anyway.
For Her, Movie/TV Show: "American Horror Story: Asylum"
What? You thought we were going to say The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2? Yes, "American Horror Story: Asylum" just ended, but if your lovely lady missed it, it's absolutely available for download right now. And who wouldn't love to dive into this awesomely twisted story? It's got all the things ladies love: strong, powerful women; a great love story and a bloody mental asylum. Are we right, ladies!? You can download individual episodes or the entire season of "American Horror Story: Asylum" here.
For Him, Movie/TV Show: Lake Placid: The Final Chapter
You'll have to pre-order this one, but your man can have it in his paws on its release date of February 19th. As you can see from the DVD artwork below, this one looks to have some bikini-clad honeys in it. And with a history like the Lake Placid franchise has, this should be an interesting view. You can pre-order Lake Placid: The Final Chapter here.
For Him or Her, Movie/TV Show: American Mary
Although there isn't much of a love story to it, American Mary is a wonderful gift for him or her during the holiday of love. Technically it isn't available in the US now, but you can get it in the UK… and the UK does have its own branch of Amazon.com and their Blu-ray of American Mary is region free, which means you can buy it from across the pond and watch it right here in the good ol' U.S. of A. American Mary is empowering for women and gives a thrill to the guys as well who will dig the sick F/X in the film. The Soska sisters went above and beyond in making this one. Go above and beyond for your loved one and nab him or her a copy of American Mary here.
