10 Most Heartbreaking Horror Films

"While comedies want you to laugh and dramas want you to care, the horror genre isn't so easily pigeonholed. Horror movies often aim for some combination of intentions — they want to scare, unsettle, and/or entertain with shocks and thrills — and some mix other elements in from the funny to the disgusting. A small handful, though, aim even higher. They want to break your goddamn heart along the way.
It's a difficult line to walk, delivering genre thrills while also crafting characters whose circumstances grip our hearts, but when it works the result can be magical. A simple film about cannibalistic humanoid underground dwellers can become a heart-wrenching look at loss and grief. A story about twin doctors fueled by addiction and ego turns a corner to explore the painful side of human connection. A descent into comical terror involving undead beavers shifts to become — okay, sometimes a Zombeaver is just a Zombeaver. But other examples await below!"
