可爱 is positive whilst 恐怖 is negative.

For 又A又B , do A and B have to be both positive or both negative? Or can one be positive and the other negative?

I want to say ''these pictures are kinda cute and kinda horrific''.

这些图又可爱又恐怖

有问题吗 ?

It should not be a problem. because we have this commonly said:

我对她又爱又恨。

……又可气又好笑。

And in your case, this might be an improvement:

这些图片又可爱又可怖

Or

这些图片既可爱又可怖。

It's worth to note that the point is that the adjectives should be relevant. The comment suggests 又好气又好笑 is better than 又可气又好笑 because 好气 and 好笑 are more relevant than 可气 and 好笑.

    又可气又好笑...should be 又好氣又好笑。 – HungYu Chang Aug 22 '20 at 0:39

    @HungYuChang Yeah, that's an improvement. But I think 又可气又好笑 is ok. – dan Aug 22 '20 at 0:52

    可氣又好笑 sounds odd, I‘ve never use or heard that before. 令人生氣又好笑, 好氣又好笑 are more fluent and common.(Taiwan) – HungYu Chang Aug 22 '20 at 13:19
