After a bender of desert horror movies, it's only natural to reconsider any long road trips that might be in the works. After all, horror movies set in the desert prove that the dark, open skies and sprawling stretches of sand are an open invitation for all sorts of monsters and ghouls. From bloodthirsty, sci-fi creatures of the night to stalkers with malicious intent, the hot sand and highways of the desert hold enough secrets to keep anyone far away.

Desert-themed horror movies will ensure that whenever you leave for a long trip, the gas tank will be full, a spare tire will be tucked away in the trunk, and everyone's guard will be all the way up. Even with an excess of horror movie knowledge, nobody really knows what's lurking in the sandy depths of the desert.
