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.

The Blair Witch: She sets up plenty of dates, but she never ever shows.
The Hill family from The Hills Have Eyes: They dated, just from a very small pool of applicants…
