Weâ€™ve already discussed how one of theÂ many great things about fall romanceÂ is snuggling up during a scary movie. But before you schedule a date to curl up on the couch and scare yourselves silly, decode what his choice of Halloween flick reveals about him.
Â If he chooses one of these flicks, here’s what you can assume about him. Note: Not all of these are actually scary, because someÂ men are babies. And so am I.
The Exorcist: He obviously did not have a Catholic mother to install a hearty fear of the devil in his soul or else he would be TOO SCARED TO EVEN TALK ABOUT THIS MOVIE. Um, hold me please.
Itâ€™s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown: Heâ€™s a bit of a kid at heart, but in a good way. He appreciates nostalgia and the romance of hoping something great will come, even if thereâ€™s no reason to believe. Awwww.
Child’s Play: He may be a kid at heart too, but a kid you doÂ notÂ want to play dolls with.
Halloween: This fratty bro probably just has a thing for watching teenage babysitters. Or a severe problem with his sister.
A Nightmare on Elm Street: He’s either a really solid sleeper who doesn’t have bad dreams, or neither of you are getting any sleep tonight.
Carrie: He’s still mad he didn’t have a date to prom.
Paranormal Activity: Heâ€™s a protector and a problem solver. If something weird is going on in your house, heâ€™s going to figure it out if it kills him. Um, literally.
Edward Scissorhands: He’s a hipster with a heart of gold.
Scream: Heâ€™s a horror film buff who loves to drone on about this spot-on parody of horror movie clichÃ©s, which doesnâ€™t really matter to you if you still find parodies of horror movies to be totally scary because youâ€™re a big fraidy cat (ahem).
Scary Movie: His idea of a clever parody joke is probably fart-centric.
Psycho: Not that thereâ€™s anything wrong with liking a classic, but this guy probably refuses to listen to music from this decade, and says things like â€œThey just donâ€™t make horror movies like they used toâ€ and â€œGet off my lawn, kids!â€
Addams Family Values: If he can quote lines from this hilariously genius, underrated movie and he then laughs hysterically, he is my future husband, so please back off.
