There’s the crowds of people… the lines of people… the hours upon hours that you have to spend with said people pretending you’re having a bloody marvelous time when you really just want to go home to your couch.
So this year, why not cut out the middle man and stay the heck home and finally give yourself – and your couch – the New Year’s Eve you’ve always dreamed of?
To help you out, I’ve rounded up seven of the best movies you could be watching alone on the couch, while everyone else is lining up for an $18 vodka cruiser. Suckers!
There’s a lil’ something for everyone:
When Harry Met Sally
For the traditionalists you can’t go past When Harry Met Sally.
The classic romantic comedy follows the story of two friends – Harry and Sally – who realise after years and years of friendship that they’re actually in love with each other.
It’s super-cheesy, super-sweet stuff and it all climaxes with a big ole’ kiss on New Years Eve.
This movie is perfect for anyone who wants to feel good about the world, but I’d avoid it if you’ve just had your heart broken.
As a horror movie connoisseur I have to say that this be the scariest freakin’ movie I’ve ever seen.
It’s about a deaf writer who decides to live in an isolated house in the woods by herself.
As this is a horror movie it becomes immediately clear that this is a very bad decision. You know who else likes isolated houses in the woods? Creepy masked men who like to stalk and murder women, that’s who.
Of course, what makes this scarier than your average horror flick is the fact the victim can’t hear the murderer coming.
This is a great choice for anyone who wasn’t planning on sleeping tonight anyway.

You Get Me
This is… terrible.
You Get Me is kind of like an updated, much lamer version of Swim Fan.
It follows the story of Tyler, a high school student who has a one night stand with a girl named Holly.
After they spend the night together, Holly becomes a bit of a bunny boiler (Note: You should probably just watch Fatal Attraction, the original bunny boiler movie).
