No. I like to be scared but not horrified. So I like movies like The Others with Nicole Kidman. Thrillers?

Post Re: Do you like Horror movies?
I find most of them entertaining. The older ones, Halloween, Friday the 13th, Evil Dead .... are some of my picks. Though horror is not my favorite genre, I tend to like dramas better.

Post Re: Do you like Horror movies?
I love Horror movies the most out of any genre. I mostly like the original movies and hate the remakes. My fav movie of all time is Halloween. Nothing can beat that movie, especially as an original. I have all the Halloween movies. I have over 6,000 movies and the majority of them are horror. When my mother died about 6 years ago, she left me two boxes of her classic horror movies that are on VHS. I want to find the machine that will help me to record these movies on DVD. You can quote any movie and most likely I have seen it and know who the actors are who played in the movie.

Post Re: Do you like Horror movies?
I agree with Moondarlin - I enjoy horror movies - but I prefer the ghosty ones and not the slasher type string-em-up by the cojones before cutting them off types. Halloween (the original Jamie Lee Curtis wearing clogs version) kind of cross-genres in that regard and I really liked it. The Ring was good but then the horror directors got all into using that goofy - looks like the main character or ghost is having a seizure - type of imagery which became boring. I enjoyed American Werewolf in London - it was great.

The Thing - The Shining - Jaws - whenever they're on I'll sit and watch and be reminded of the teenager I once was.

Post Re: Do you like Horror movies?
The Exorcism of Emily Rose was really scary for me. Most of the horror stories I've seen were just good for relieving stress (scream-out fest) or criticizing the characters (pretty female protagonist with a psycho targeting her; bf to the rescue, etc).

I liked that Emily rose left you in the air a bit about what really happened with her.

Have you tried that? Looking for answers?
Or have you been content to be terrified of a thing you know nothing about?

Are you pushing your own short comings on us and safely hating them from a distance?

Is this the virtue of faith? To never change your mind: especially when you should?

Young Earth Creationists take offense at the idea that we have a common heritage with other animals. Why is being the descendant of a mud golem any better?

Confidence being an expectation built on past experience, evidence and extrapolation to the future. Faith being an expectation held in defiance of past experience and evidence.

Post Re: Do you like Horror movies?
Normally no, but for some reason I do gravitate towards Stephen King. I like horror but not the gore. So movies like 1408, It, Rose Red, anything Stephen King I like. I find that Drag Me To Hell was awesome. And a classic that I really love though some may not consider it a horror movie is The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. I have stayed clear of watching Freddy Kruger movies, Friday The 13th, and Paranormal Activity. I'm more of a Science Fiction fan.

Post Re: Do you like Horror movies?
Well . . . there are Horror Movies, and there are Horror Movies. I like interesting cinema, and that includes Horror. The genre goes back to the beginning of moving pictures. I have DVDs of Nosferatu, The Phantom of the Opera, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, and Der Golem; all silent movies. One aspect of movie making that interest me is the style. I watch a movie as much for lighting and camera angles as I do for content. So Horror is right in there. I liked The Exorcist, Night of the Living Dead and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. But I also like B grade monster movies.
An unwritten contract exists between the directors and writers of Horror movies, and their audience. The team will horrify you only to the extent that you are sitting in a cinema or watching the tube. They will not horrify you in such a way that you become totally disgusted with humanity and terminally depressed, which is not that hard to do if you look around at what is going down in the world today.

Post Re: Do you like Horror movies?
Although I find their content to be disturbing, if I had to watch horror films, I would prefer to watch movies made in the 1970s. There is simply too much watering down today.
