Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Troubled or complexed relationships are at the center of many horror films and folktales, and in the latest episode of our SCARY STUDIES video series, which is one of the several cool shows we have on our JoBlo Horror Videos YouTube channel, writer/narrator Cody Meirick digs into some popular examples of "twisted romances gone wrong" in horror films. 

The title of this episode is LOVE, SECRETS, AND HORROR. In it, Meirick examines the Green Ribbon story, the Stephen King adaptations GERALD'S GAME and THE SHINING, and TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE: THE MOVIE, among others, stories that bring up the questions, "How can we ever really know who this person is? What secrets do they have underneath the surface?" 

With the SCARY STUDIES video series, 

Meirick, director of the documentary about Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, aims to delve into the stories, the films, and the meanings behind the scary stories we tell ourselves.
