List Rules Vote up your favorite horror movie couples, even if only one or neither makes it to the end.

Horror movies couples show the world what true love can endure, be it zombies, demons, werewolves, or vampires, these couples have seen it all. Some of these pairings were together before the movie like the Freelings in Poltergeist and the Abbotts in A Quiet Place while other couples were brought together by the terrifying nature of their circumstances such as Colombus and Wichita from Zombieland. The couples on this list range in age and relationship status but their stories are as equally compelling. Luke Wilson and Vera Farmiga play the real-life famous couple, Ed and Lorraine Warren, but there are also famous fictional couples on this list as well. With that being said, one of them has to be the best.

Which of these couples from horror movies deserves to be at the top of the list. Vote up all your favorite couples regardless of how scary the movie is but based on how much you like the couple themselves.
