The Chinese Zodiac is a zodiac that assigns people a sign by the year that they were born, and they are represented by animals. For example, the Years of the Dog include 1970, 1982, 1994, and 2006. Every twelve years, the Year of the Dog comes around, and it produces a plethora of people who value honesty and loyalty. Those who are Dogs in the Chinese Zodiac are the most reliable of all.
In terms of the horror movies that Dogs will love the most, it can be tough to find some. Horror movies are not always reflective of their personalities or values. But those that are will really resonate as favorites for Dogs.
10 Love: It (2017)
To be honest, both It movies would be adored by the Dogs of the Chinese Zodiac. Lots of horror movies deal with groups of friends who get picked off one by one. But the new It movies are about one group of friends that does whatever they can to stick together, despite all the odds.
The first It is the best example of this, though. They were just kids and they did the best that they could to help one another. Nothing is more reliable than a childhood best friend, after all.
9 Hate: Get Out (2017)
Get Out is a revolutionary horror movie that came out in the same year as the It remake, but Dogs are way more likely to gravitate towards the latter than the former. Get Out has no reliability or loyalty whatsoever.
Chris and Rose are supposed to have a relationship that would prioritize loyalty above all else. Instead, Rose is the latest in the long line of characters who betrays Chris. It makes for incisive social commentary, but it's heartbreaking for Dogs all the same.
8 Love: Zombieland (2009)
Zombieland will appeal to Dogs in the same way that It does. It's all about the loyalty that a group shares in the face of horrific challenges. It takes a bit more time for the gang in Zombieland to forge their bonds, but eventually they get there. And the result is all the sweeter for it.
The foursome, played by Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin, works exceptionally well together. Each of their skills complement one another and it makes for a reliable group.
7 Hate: What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? (1962)
In Zombieland, a family is forged from a group of strangers. In What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, a family is torn asunder by the manic energy of one sister. Siblings are supposed to be the most loyal bond of all, so Dogs will be devastated by the horrors that these two sisters inflict upon one another.
It's an older horror movie, so it will be easier for Dogs to steer clear of it. The lack of loyalty might be the most chilling element of Baby Jane, as a whole.
6 Love: What We Do In The Shadows (2014)
What We Do in the Shadows is the rare horror movie that embraces the mockumentary format. As such, it emphasizes one of the main hallmarks of Dogs in the Chinese Zodiac: honesty.
Yes, the vampires at the center of the film are loyal to one another in their friendships. But they are also honest at every turn. They bear their souls (if they have any) to the camera operators and they tell viewers everything they need to know.
5 Hate: Psycho (1960)
Venturing back into the older horror movies, Psycho is an Alfred Hitchcock classic that Dogs would absolutely detest. There are elements of unreliable narrators/protagonists at play in Psycho and it makes it hard to see what's coming next.
This can be great for shock value, but it won't be great for the Dogs who value their horror movies coming from a place of honesty. Instead, they'll just feel deliberately duped and led astray.
4 Love: Doctor Sleep (2019)
One of the best elements of Doctor Sleep was how it deepened the relationship between Danny and his mother, even if the one between Danny and his father was irrevocably shattered. Dogs will love the true bond that Danny shared with his mother and the fact that Flanagan gave this the center stage in the film, in spite of the horror elements.
3 Hate: Warm Bodies (2013)
Warm Bodies, upon first viewing, is a charming film that is actually quite inventive. A zombie rom-com? Could such a film exist? Warm Bodies proves that yes, it can. However, Dogs will find themselves asking a lot of questions about the nature of the main relationship.
For one, the ways in which the two leads get together are extremely sketchy. People die and become zombies for the two of them to connect. Shouldn't that be reason alone for everyone to question the truth of the love in the movie, not just Dogs?
2 Love: The Adventures Of Ichabod And Mr. Toad (1949)
This list has included a couple horror movies of long ago that Dogs would not appreciate. But there are some from previous decades that Dogs would find a lot of love for. One of these is definitely the Disney classic, The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad.
The Ichabod segment is the aspect of the film that Dogs will love. Dogs learned to trust the protagonist, Ichabod Crane. And even though things don't go well for Ichabod, they can at least appreciate how he was honest to a fault.
1 Hate: Split (2016)
Lastly, Split is a Shyamalan horror movie that Dogs will not be able to get behind. Anyone who kidnaps others has already given up the hope for them to have loyalty and reliability within them. This alone makes it hard for a Dog to connect.
However, when the split personality disorder is introduced and the entirety of Split becomes dishonest and unreliable, these problems are furthered. Dogs will detest the fact that some scenes make no sense at all. There's other horror movies out there that are more worth their time.
