What If... horror icons invaded boring films?

We're fed up of watching films without a bodycount, films that are more interested in discussing affairs of the heart than they are in showing hearts being removed from chest cavities. Here's some boring movies with horror icons in them. You're welcome.

When Hellraiser Met Sally

Alien Contact

Plot: Dr. Ellie Arroway’s (Jodie Foster) work on the SETI project takes a turn for the worst when she achieves her ambition and makes contact with an alien life-form (Sigourney Weaver) that has acid for blood and wants to impregnate her chest.

Examining in-depth the social, political and economical ramifications of humanity encountering its own annihilation, Contact is an transcendent mediation on what it means both to be human and to be destroyed by an insectoid race of drooling sociopaths.

Sample dialogue:

Ellie Arroway: “Mathematics is the only true universal language.”
Alien: “Screeeeeeeeeeeeee” *kills Ellie*
