Pin it

Sure they walk slow. They can eventually be outwitted. And they harbor a murderous rage deep inside. But horror villains deserve love too. So in honor of Friday the 13th, we pondered what would happen if a few cold-blooded killers fell victim to more warm-blooded ways.

Billy Loomis/Skeet Ulrich from Scream: Imagine an alternate universe where Billy Loomis lives — even if people knew he killed a load of teenagers, with that haircut he still would have gotten laid.

Asami from Auditon: Somehow she survives, and continues to be the reason you should always trust what your friends say about people you’re dating. Listen to the impeding sense of dread when it arises.

Oskar and Eli from Let the Right One In: The young couple travels to rainy Glasgow in an attempt to flee the authorities and the crippling sunlight.

Now frozen in their teens, they hang around, cropping up with the undead craze is especially trendy and performing in a Swedish, vampire pop group. The are currently recording a track with Robyn (“Konichiwa Vampires”).

Regan MacNeil from The Exorcist: Coming back from possession is hard, so it took Regan awhile to date.

Jason from Friday the 13th: Like Norman, Jason has some mother issues, but his exceptionally handy abilities with all manor of murderous tools (ice picks, axes, arrows) and his fierce dedication draw in one fine lady who believed these positives outweigh his bloody past and horrific deformity. Sadly, Jason drowned on the couples honeymoon at Sandals.

Katie from Paranormal Activity: Katie starts taking again, but she always remembers to take an Ambien before bed. Problem solved.
