For some time I have been paying more attention to watching horror / suspense movies rather than my usual movie line ups. I got so caught in this whole horror movie watching thing. That I even start to dream that I’m inside one. So here’s My list on why I liked watching horror movies.
- Every time the bad guy steps into the scene or is lurking somewhere in the scene. The bad guy’s theme song is played or a sort of weird, eerie music to maximize the horror effect.
- The Characters or the “good guys” tend to split up at the wrong time, it’s dumb, I know and we know that being alone is probably the most dumbest thing to do especially when you know that you are either being watched of followed and that would get a first class ticket to be killed. Cliche move…
- Things always go wrong at the most critical time, like a door won’t open or the car won’t start, or the lights go off when you definitely need it and even sometimes the shower spews up blood or something. Almost all horror movies has this. I don;t know why but this the reason for the screams as you’re desperately trying to get away but can’t because the stupid door is jammed. Cliche, I know.
- The villian or bad guys never die, as they always come back for some reason, think Jason Vorhees, Freddie Krueger, Mike Myers. It can be pretty annoying because sooner or later the sequels would just keep getting cornier and cornier. It was great the first 3-4 movies but when it comes to 10 times would you think it would still be that scary good?
But there are still good horror movies that are original and don’t have to use cliches, but that ‘s the fun part in watching horror movies over and over again, once you get over the fact that it’s not scary start looking for something hilarious on that movie. Trust me you will find them.
Got any ideas or discoveries. Leave me a comment I’ll be glad to add it on the list
