You know the formula, it's as old as Jesus. Boy meets girl. Boy and girl fall in love. Boy and girl overcome a variety of spirit-breaking hardships and crazy circumstances to be together. Roll credits. A slight variation we bet you're not quite as familiar with? Boy meets girl. Boy and girl fall in love. Boy dies in accident. Girl vows to bring boy back to life by getting impregnated with his clone and raising him as her son...with benefits.
No, we couldn't even make up this twisted tale of cross-generational love—the credit goes to Hungarian filmmaker Benedek Fliegauf, writer and director of Womb, a very real movie due out for limited release Friday. In the event you and your lady are fiending for some bad romance this weekend, protagonist Rebecca (Eva Green) and her literal loverboy Tommy (Matt Smith) are guaranteed to deliver big, though we have a hunch that you'll more likely be retching than swooning.
But Green and Smith aren't the only leading lovers to weird us out with their questionable coupling—plenty of other taboo (or straight up bizarre) twosomes have surfaced over the years, threatening to steal their title for Most Likely to Make You Really, Really Uncomfortable. "Who?" you ask. Allow us to make the acquaintance. Before you, The 10 Creepiest Love Stories in Movies.
