“I love you too, darling! May the daffodils of perpetuity dapple upon thine bonce, hopefully not inducing severe lacerations or a brain haemorrhage.”

Good old gut-wrenching horror films. Can’t beat a bit of the old terrifying terror. Scary dary. Lots of gore! Aiiiiiiieee (not in the rapping sense) etc.

But, hey, what happens if you take a classic horror film and, instead of adding more gore and banal screaming tropes, you make it all sickly sweet?

The Evil Snuggums

This film is about evil cuddling. It involves a couple going about their life, moving from one apartment to the next, getting kicked out for cackling insanely whilst cuddling. For you see, evil cuddling will get you evicted. Mwahahahaha!

The Snuggums of the Lambs

Lambs are cute so why not cuddle up with them? This documentary follows a bunch of stoned hippies frolicking about in fields with said diminutive beasts. Please note, this film definitely is not some perverted romp along. If you thought that, get out of here! Go on! This is a family blog.

The monster may be terrifying, but its creator needs Victor Frankenstein needs a personal life, too. This prequel follows the dating misadventures of Victor as he puts off women with his insane cackling and ranting about bolts of lightning.

The Texas Snuggums Massacre

Sometimes, snuggums (as in, a romantic cuddle) can turn horrifyingly deadly. Based on a true story from the ’60s, it’s the real-life retelling of a bunch of hippies who had one giant snuggum… and then WWIII almost happened.

The Snuggums Project

28 Snuggums Later

Almost a month of snuggling, eh? And what happens after those 28 days, as paramedics arrive to prise the terrified couple apart with a crowbar? Scurvy, emaciation, gangrene, and divorce. DON’T SNUGGLE FOR A MONTH!

The Snuggums in the Woods

Clever 2011 horror film that subverts genre expectations by having everyone cuddle in the woods. Which is what this whole list is about? How does that subvert anything!?

And finally…
