It goes without saying that most of you would pick a romantic movie to watch with your partner or date. While some may choose an action or even a horror movie (both provide you escapist entertainment without being cheesy that romantic movies can be sometimes). But is there a type of films that you should completely avoid? Are there types of films that are strictly no-no? In my opinion, there are two kind of movies you strictly should avoid: 1. something very graphically violent or sexual and 2. dramas that show downfall or pitfalls of a relationship. With that in mind let’s jump right into films that fall into one of these categories and that you should never ever watch on with your partner or date.
10. Antichrist (2009)
A grieving couple retreat to their cabin in the woods, hoping to repair their broken hearts and troubled marriage. But nature takes its course and things go from bad to worse. A genius like Lars von Trier — who I’m a big fan of — is no stranger to making deeply disturbing films. This is one! And even though it is a great film if you watch it alone, I would never advise you to watch it with you date. Why you should avoid it: Weird, graphically sexual and is about crumbling relationship.

9. Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom (1975)
It chronicles the story of the sickening pleasures of the lords and how they exploit 18 young men and women in devious manners. The tale is narrated in an unflinching manner, making it highly intense. The brutal murders, rape for fun and sadism make it one of the most difficult films to watch. It is gory and hurts the viewer almost physically every time it is watched. Some of the scenes are so disturbing that it becomes a nightmare. The torture is unapologetic but poetic justice is served in the end. Why you should avoid it: Violent and disturbing
