Sometimes I like to watch horror movies. That's because I want to see whether I will feel very scared to it. I want to test and challenge myself. If I feel very scared when I am watching the movie, that means to say this movie is very successful. As it's not so easy for me to be scared to a horror movie

Lol ... youless, you are really brave to challenge yourself to watch the horror movies. I understand that, to you, only those movies which could really make you to feel frightened then are qualified to be the real horror movies, right? I think not only the scary appearances of the characters in the movies could frighten us. I feel that the horrific scene, background music, lighting effects and the unpredictable mysterious stories always play the most important rules to scare audiences while we are watching the horror movies. I believe to watch such movie alone in the dark would make the atmosphere more horrific, especially in the unfamiliar place, like hotel room alone during nighttime. Nowadays I try not to watch horror movies anymore, for the horrific and scary scenes would always appear in my mind vividly whenever I’m alone in the dark in somewhere unfamiliar. It’s really the frightening experience. posting and take care.

I think that will be quite an interesting experience to watch the horror movie alone at the hotel with lights off

Hi youless, we would better don’t let our kids to watch horror movies especially before bed time. This will make them to have frightening nightmare. They will also feel scared when they are alone in the dark. Of course we are not happy to see our children to develop phobia of darkness. Btw thanks for marking mine as the best response. Happy posting and take care.

I agree with you...I also want to test and challenge myself to know if I'm scared or not. Other than that, it's very exciting to see horror movies and to TRY to guess what's coming next or what's the mystery. I LOVE mysteriessss as long as they have good endings. If the endings suck, then the whole movie can suck, too he he he he...

Some movies even don't seem to have an ending, and that's quite frustrating

HE HE HE HE...that's true. I used to be SO frustrated over that type of ending, but these days I don't want to bother. What I HATE the most nowadays is the type of "stupid" ending like in Stephen King's "The Mist".

If you have a third eye, I don't think you will feel scared. As you already get used to see some unknown things

that is what is wrong with me i guess, i still dont get used to things like that. sometimes i still get the creeps and get afraid and shocked as well. it is not a nice sight to see so i no longer watch horror movies so it wont add anything in my mind. i just wish i get used to it but cant.

Hello youless. I think that it would be easier for a horror movie to be successful if you watch one without anyone else next to you. I mean, you watch alone with no one at home. I also love to watch horror movies, but I have no one to accompany me. I feel very scared by some of the horrible scenes in the horror movies though I love to see them.

I like to watch horror movies frequently I don't know why. I like that horror movies when compared to other moveies but I don't know the reason behind this. The horror movies are very interested and exited movies, when we watch that we will very eagar to know about the next scene.

You are right. Sometimes it makes you feel bad when the ending seems to have no answer.

oooo I do not watch them anymore, not since my youth. Probably not since becoming a mother, anyway. I lost my interest in terror shows.

I like watching scary movies when I am with my older cousin because she shrieks a lot. I also like it when she's around while watching scary movies because I do not get scared, I laugh a lot when she would shout.

The last two movies that I watched that I might consider a kind of horror movie were Stepford Wives, and the Hand Maid's Tale. I watched them both because of their stories, and to see what could happen if the wrong people were in control of the world. I have no interest in a lot of special effects, I'm more interested in a good plot.

I use horror movies as a laxative. For those days when I'm having trouble doing my duty, I'll pop in a real good horror flick, and wait for that one scene to scare the sH#t out of me! literaly.

It's fun to be scared when you know it's really make believe. I like the horror movies that are suspenseful (you are waiting for something bad to happen), rather than graphic ones with lots of blood and guts. For the graphic ones, I usually end up trying to figure out how the special effect was done, instead of being scared by it.

I love to watch horror movie because i like thrillers very much. I don't get scared by watching horror movies.Horror movies keep us guessing what would come next on screen and are fast-paced.They can never be boring. That is why i like horror movies.
