As it's Chucky, The Notorious Killer Doll Day, we thought we would take a look at the relationship lessons horror movies can teach young lovers.
Stay a virgin… for the rest of your days!
Cross your legs, hide the contraception and ignore your twitchy bits people. You may be as happy as Larry in your relationship, but by bumping uglies- you are putting yourself at greater risk of getting stabbed, slashed or punched aka Scream and Cherry Falls.
Don't go to your boyfriend's cabin in the arse end of nowhere, because we all know the electricity will cut out, the signal will go and there will be no-one to call to for help within a 100 mile radius. No-one will have brought a match, a torch or a spare set of keys…the list is endless of brain farts where randy teenagers are concerned. Think; Cabin in the Woods, Evil Dead and Texas Chainsaw- nothing good ever came from getting away from it all. Avoid dirt paths and wooded areas too. I'm just saying……
Don't go anywhere alone
I know the key to a successful relationship is to have some 'me time', but that can work to your disadvantage too- empty attics, cellars and hidden rooms are out of bounds unless you are with your partner. Insidious, The Conjuring and Paranormal Activity 4; hello?! You might meet a demon, or a ghost and neither would be interested in hanging out or engaging in any three-way action!
Lower your standards…
Looks are not all they're cracked up to be. Take Megan Fox in Jennifer's Body for instance- drop-dead-gorgeous- literally! Ryan Reynolds in Amityville Horror- normally- yes please- but with all weird and starey blood shot eye business going on- I'll pass thanks!
Don't read other people's stuff…
It's nice that you can find a hobby together, but please, anything but reading. If you date a man who reads- dump him (now!)- they are ultimately going to conjure up an evil spirit or anger something from the netherworld. What is wrong with TV- seriously?!
Don't always trust your man
If he starts looking at you funny, pulling stuff out his eyes, chanting, rocking or digging holes in the back yard for no reason, it might be time to call it a day. This guy has issues and is probably seeing dead people- anyone remember Stir of Echoes?
Be wary of his 'lady' friends
If every picture you have together always has the same chick dressed head to toe in black in the background- the one who follows you literally everywhere- it's time get back on Tinder because your relationship isn't built to last- and neither is he.
