Cupid is packing his quiver and will soon assault lovers around the globe for Valentine's Day. Whether you celebrate at home alone munching on a handful of candy hearts watching Steve Martin's Roxanne or do the full-blown romantic rendezvous with a husband, wife, friend or partner, I hope your holiday is a sweet one.

If you're still scrambling for a card that will express some geeky emotions and thoughts that aren't exactly found in your everyday Hallmark selection, here's a sometimes sick and slightly twisted selection of horror-themed Valentine's Day cards by artist Matthew Lineham. Each raunchy and romantic message is themed to classic fright flicks and supernatural shows like The Lost Boys, An American Werewolf in London, The Thing, Re-Animator, The Gate, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Stranger Things, The Fly, Hellraiser and more.

Lineham has made these awesome cards to share via social media, but you can also purchase physical cards from his online shop. There are two different '80s horror-inspired three-packs and a Stranger Things assortment available. Each 8.5"x 11" sheet includes nine perforated card designs for a total of 27 per pack and costs $14.

Check out this deliciously deranged collection of monster and horror movie-inspired Valentines to delight your heart's desire in the gallery below and tell us which ones are far better than a boring box of chocolates.
