WHO LIKES BEING SCARED?
October 27, 2017 7:22am CST
Seems like a lot of people do. Horror movies are popular -so are the spooky, horror houses at entertainment venues. Does this mean that there is a deep dark side to everyone - just waiting to be uncovered?. Personally , I do not like horror shows or anything scary, but I do recall watching a werewolf movie years ago. I wouldn't mind watching a good suspense movie - but no horror- there is enough of it in real life. Do you like horror movies and spooky houses? Is there a thrill in being scared?

I recall years ago I was purchasing an item from a street vendor's stall stall which was next to a movie house. Imagine my shock when I saw a young woman dashing out of the cinema screaming and pulling at her hair. When I checked the billboard I saw that a horror movie was in progress. I couldn't help wondering what made her go there in the first place - she obviously couldn't handle horror shows.

Not a fan of haunted houses or horror movies. I like spooky, mystery movies but not flat out gory horror movies. I love the Frankenstein, Dracula, Mummy movies of the 1930's and 1940's. When we got home from prayer meeting last night, we heard one of our local haunted houses going on. People screaming and on a sound track playing loudly, wolves howling. Glad that they didn't keep it going too late into the evening. Neighborhood dogs weren't fond of the howling wolves.

@Kandae11 It is just across the railroad tracks from us, the sound carries over to us. The rail road tracks are about 2/10ths of a mile from us. There is a main road, church then our home. Mike heard the wolves howling this morning, someone must have turned it back on for some reason.

I bet you have not read The Witching Hour. Quite the book. I love Victorian houses but I'm not sure that I could peacefully sleep with a basement way below me and an attic above my head. Too many monster scenarios in my head.
When you mention the word 'psycho' - the movie Psycho starring Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh immediately came to mind. I did not watch Silence of the Lambs - even though Anthony Hopkins is my favorite actor - he is awesome. I think the movie got an unusual amount of awards for that type film.
i like to watch horror, suspense, thriller movies. i want to be scared but most of the time, i feel amused with how the "spirits" reveal themselves in the movies. one Japanese film though that i got so scared was The Ring, the original Japanese film. i nearly shouted when the last frame of the movie was the woman's hair showing her eye that was inverted.
