    I Can Deal With Some.

    My first experience with horror movies was A Nightmare on Elm Street II when I was eight. Not good, especially for an already disturbed child with a fear of the dark. I can still remember the part where Freddy's eye looked out of the guys mouth. *Shudder* I avoided horror movies...

    Horror and Exploitation Genres Are Sewers of the Mind

    It is gore, filth, torture, sadism, and exploiting mentally ill as objects of filthy pervs.  Stephen "Sleazy" Dung... eer, King and his potty fetish to vilify fat and mentally ill is just tip of the dungheap.  Don´t understand me wrong, I love Gothic...

    Embarrassing

    For my birthday I went to the cinema with my sister, friend and crush and they all forced me to watch paranormal activity 4 and all the way through the film I kept hiding in my jumper and really embarrassed myself I front of him. Also my sister forced me to watch it the other...

    Their Lack Of Experience

    I doubt anyone who's ever been in a horrifiying situation such as depicted in horror films would ever want to watch one.  The first time I went to the ER for depression, I saw a poster for a horror film, and I remember how disgusted I was that people actually pay to see horrific...

    I Can't Understand This...

    I've been wondering myself this since I turned 12, we (my fam. and I) were watching "deep rising" on T.V and when I watched the scene where a woman get sucked by the toilet, I just started to cry. now I'm 21, and despite of my age I still can not sit down in front of a screen and...

    Bread and Circuses

    I am so totally sickened by the "oooh I'm a fly on the wall of a slaughterhouse and I can't wait to watch the terror, evil, and grisley death begin" part of humanity, at least here that wants to see horror movies.  I am old, and I watched the original ones back in...

    I don't hate them because I think they're scary.

    Fiction can't scare me. They just annoy me almost to the point of ******* me off. I think real horror is in things that happen in real life.

    I Wish They Were Banned....

    I just can't even watch them and I don't understand people who do- they're violent, disturbing and ruin my morale. I especially hate watching realistic horror movies or ones based on true stories. I hate grusome graphic bloodiness. I think that it is barbaric to find it...

    I Hate The Final Destination Series!

    I don't understand it. What is up with our fascination with death? What is it that drives this obsession, an affliction that has steeped our lives in a hogshead of gruesome deaths and false hopes? Why do we need to feed this compelling industry? Why should we allow those who...

    It Is Pathetic Honestly

    I hate horror. That is a blunt fact. I hate horror games, movies, and books. I am a wimp I must admit. I get scared easily. It is not like I can't sleep afterwards -though in complete honesty I haven't seen or read enough horror to test this theory- but during it? Oh jeez...

    Horror and Gore a Big No No

    Horror and Gore ruins morale. I like suspense...but to hell with horror flicks. I use to be stuck watching it as a kid cause NOBODY would listen to what I wanted to watch. I especially hate how parents dont take care of their little kids and let them watch it and then...

    Total Crap

    It's not because they're scary, it's not because i get nightmares (which i don't), its because they are just plain ****. I don't mind the gore and the carnage, i just find them totally and utterly stupid.

    I Used To Be A Horror Movie Junkie!

    I used to watch nothing but horror movies. Loved em! But I have been single now for awhile and it's not the same when you are the only adult who lives in the house. I grew up in a five bedroom home. And it was big. I'm sure it seemed much bigger when I was small. But more often...

    Horror Movies

    I hate horror movies.  I think it is cause I got scared when I was a child.  My parents brought me along while they did a visit and that family son rented a scary movie (don't know the name of it) and every since then, I don't like watching any.  I still can picture one...

    They Are For Weak People

    Think about it....who willingly gets brutally f'd up just for money? Your legacy stays after you die and your money is no use to you. Plus its sick how they use women and try to turn violence into a fetish. I think every single horror film or anything of the sort must be banned.

    Gag!

    If it's a horror movie about ghosts, I'm always looking over my shoulder for WEEKS afterwards. If it has blood or gore I have to leave the room before I start puking or passing out...I can't stand any kind of torture.

    Grosses Me Out

        Some of the movies these days just gross me out, It's not that they scare me that much but it's the blood and gore.  I just went to see My Bloody Valentine in 3 D, I did enjoy the 3 D aspect of it, things flying in your face, and an eyeball even comes...

    Why Does Anyone Like Them?

    If you think about it, people do things for entertainment for enjoyment or if it makes them feel good, so to me, if watching someone get tortured or maimed is something you enjoy it makes me question what's wrong here. It completely escapes my understanding. Typically, that is...

    I Hate Gore

    I hate mostly the gore. It's absolutly disgusting. Plus I also hate the scares. I still get nightmares from horror movies. Like once I watched that Zombieland. Yeah, nightmare city. I just hate them.

    I Love Gothic Romances, But I Hate Gore

    I actually love classic monsters in Gothic, romantic settings  - but otherwise I loathe horror. All the gore, filth, ugliness... Freud would have field day with Stephen King and company!

    Coward...

    I don't know why, I just can't stand watching them. It depends what, but even at the age of 19, I hate watching horror movies. During the day isn't so bad, but at night, I can't do it. My friends call me a coward, but hey, this is just how I am!
