Warning: This article contains mild spoilers for our ghoulish Valentine's Day horror movie picks. Read on — if you dare!

I'm all about positivity at the moment, so I'll be counting down the 10 best horror remakes in my opinion (film numero uno being the very best).
Reegan was ready for bed. After a long day, she knew it wouldn't take long for her to fall asleep. She did her nightly routine and then crawled into her warm bed.

But right now, she was experiencing a bad one.
New Short Story The Deadly Fear The tapping of the water hitting the sink in the kitchen had lulled him into a peaceful trance, but the terror still gripped his heart like a vise. The cold breeze forcing its way into the room had frozen the ground like ice. Even in his trance-like state, he could feel his feet numbing from the icy hard ground as it clung to his toes. Bright fluorescent lighting illuminated his surroundings into clear contrast from the other rooms in the house which were bathed in oily black shadows. The darkness clung to the rest of the house like a living breathing creature.
The Origin of 'Sleeping Beauty'—More 'Crime Watch' Than Fairy Tale
We all remember fairy tales from our childhood. They were sweet and cute, had a princess and a prince, a frog and a witch, and they all lived happily ever after.
