Quick question... When you watch horror movies, how far is too far?
Is it religious? Blood? What is it that makes a movie "un-watch-able?"
I personally do not watch horror movies ... I simply cannot find anything "good" in them. A buddy made me watch the first Saw movie and it was the last time I try watching a senseless, useless horror movie. Such movies do nothing for me personally: they are so fake and detached from any "form" of reality that I have to "pass" on them.
Any Type of Horror Films goes.
I watched them when I alone because this is the time you enjoys most of it
I love horror movies, as long as they aren't just excuses for the director and F/X people to practice grossing me out.
I don't mind appropriate violence, as long as the violence isn't the point.
Give me witches, vampires, ghouls, monsters of all varieties, and I'm okay. However, I don't enjoy horror films with serial killers. That's too real. Horror requires a healthy dose of unreality for me to enjoy it.
Enjoy? Yes, I enjoy being scared, as long as I know deep down that what frightens me on screen doesn't exist in real life.
Take, the hills have eyes...I dont like rape scenes. Not at all. I end up looking away, fast forwarding and it generally puts me in an upset mood. If there is a movie where there is a rape scene, i think twice before watching it, and i usually will pick something else.
I don't generally watch horror movies, but when I do, I generally stay away from excessive torture scenes. I don't mind the chases and the monsters and stuff popping out, but I don't like the stuff that seems like it might be real. And sick twisted torture falls in there for me
I dont like horrors that have rape scenes, or freaky demon children.

Do you think that horror movies negatively influence society?This is meant to be purposely open and interpreted however you like - do they cause crime? Nightmares? Insomnia? Lack of respect? What do you think?

Hehehe...I hear ya. I love horror movies, I used to watch them by myself all the time, but depending on the movie, I WOULD make sure all the doors were locked! Nowadays....I can't remember the last time I was actually alone. Hmm. That kinda sucks.

sleep with the lights on, made you go into your subconscious religious recesses, or asked a friend or relative to stay with you to allay your fears?
