Thread: How do you cope with horror movies?

  1. #1

    Default How do you cope with horror movies?

    I thought I'd ask this question. I can't handle horror movies. (I know it's sad) Once I tried to watch nightmare on elm street (orginal not the remake) I couldn't sleep though the night for a month and this was just last year. I'm asking this because a group of my friend want to watch Evil dead when it's released and I don't think I can take it. Does anyone have any advice on this problem?

    I sleep with the tv on and regress a tad. Like suck my thumb or something.

    If you can't handle the original nightmare on elm street you won't be able to handle Evil Dead. Even I got slightly scared by Evil Dead 1. Evil Dead is just straight up horror, it doesn't play any games like "lets take a hour to turn the corner and build up suspense."


    Slight spoilers for Evil Dead 1 and or 2 and remake. (I forgot if its only the 2nd movie that had this scene in it.)



    that's the type of stuff you can expect. Though its not torture porn type stuff like Hostel and the latter Saw movies. So I have somewhat high hopes for this remake and wont be surprised if its a near shot for shot remake. I wouldn't see it in 3D though, such a gimmick for horror films.

    When I was about 13 and my parents started being able to leave me in the house alone overnight I'd rent horror films from the local video shop... and find myself terrified of every creak in the house!

    But that didn't last long. I hate horror now -- it's either too corny and lacking in plot or too scary. Even a "scary soundtrack" has my heart racing and makes me tremble in anticipation (damned anxiety). I bought Saw on DVD a few years ago. I listened to the music as the film started and that by itself before anything happened scared me witless. I've never got through the opening credits!

    So my advice (if you feel similarly) would be not to watch the film.

    I do pretty well... I have only wanted to walk out of one, Rob Zombie's Halloween. Though, I won't watch any of that series because of that.

    Since 99.9% of horror movies are really bad I usually watch them to have a laugh at how poor the script is or how predictable the film turns out. So it never gives me issues at night really. I have more problems watching the news really

    Depends on what you term 'horror'.

    I know for a lot of people 'horror' is anything with a lot of blood & gore (slasher films), but for me 'horror' is more about the psychological aspect (thrillers). Of course, I can watch a movie and it's just that, "A MOVIE!" I know what's happening 'on screen' is all fake. It's films with creepy little kids and stuff that makes your mind go "WTF?" that get to me...but even then, I still know "It's just a movie!"

    Now books on the other hand....I looooove Stephen King and Dean Koontz...but if I read their books before sleeping, I'll have nightmares that are unbelievable. My own imagination is far better at creating the 'horror' aspects of the books than any SFX designer can do in a movie.

    I agree. I have never really like being scared, and a lot of horror movies seem corny to me, so I don't watch them. Life is too short to watch movies you don't want to watch.

    I do like some thrillers, which tend to be more exciting and less... disturbing.

    I have not watched a horror for a while. When I was with my girlfriend I watched many, Like Paranormal Activity and the Women in Black. This was a few months ago, But we broke up. before that, The last time I watched a scary film was Ring, And that was a LONG time ago. I didnt watch a horror for 5-7 years. But the way I liked was to just close your eyes haha and hide.

    I don't like horror movies in particular, most of them are terrible. Bad actors, poor story, poor effects ruin movies so badly. There are some select horror movies I do enjoy, but really most horror movies are mostly (poor) comedies.
