I do not like horror movies. This is an intense dislike I have felt for years. But it actually took me years to figure that when I say “I do not like horror movies” that exists with caveats. I don’t mind monsters and monster movies. I am absolutely fine with nearly all psychological terror. Hannibal Lecter? No problem.
It is the slasher/things-that-go-bump-in-the-night movies that don’t work for me. I take movies home with me, all movies. I like to be immersed in the world the movie offers and that doesn’t go well with horror movies. I have no desire to take horror movies home with me, to try to go to bed at night and think that they’re might be a machete-wielding loon in the other room.
But, it is October and therefore Halloween is looming and horror is everywhere. Today, Lass is More looks at the sorts of horror movies I like… even if I don’t think some of the specific examples are great movies themselves.
Don’t be scared, listen and enjoy.
