Whut in particular do you want to KNOW ? I prefer old CREEPY classics to modern torture porn. CREEPY BEATS GROSS any day. Otherwise I would just watch youtube accident footage instead of horror.
Whoops. . . . . . gotta step away for a few. . . . . GOTdamn, keeping tabs bullshit ! Like the military but without the joy of shooting people. . . . . . . . . .

how i feel about the genre, well i love it , i would not spend half the amount of time checking out the horror if i dint!!!<,, have to say though that horror is pretty fooked and has been for quite sometime, just dont seem to have the same impact as like the 80's for example sure there is some goodies out there but to little,,i think CGI has fooked up horror for sure and wish practiclal fx got a step up again!!,, i dont see any originality out there apart from say the likes of the rec franchise for example but again its still really zombies running around being shot at woppie fookin do!!<,, na i wanna see soemthing really scary , i look everyday to see if this is the case but day after day year after year , and nothing,, but you could say perhaps u only really get one maybe two possibly even three flicks a DECADE which u could say are the dogs bollox,, so what u gunna do shoot me in the head and ram your thumb right proper hard up my arsehole!!!LOL

I love old and new, but not really into the "real stuff", based on true storys I really dont like, stuff thats too real like Hostle, or torcher films I probobly don't like. my kind of horror is Monster/syfy horror. Love old, new, classic, and some remakes. Me to find a good monsterflick, such as werewolf or zombie movies, is like finding heaven/or hell, however you look at that. And to find a AWSOME monster flick to me is like finding the holy grail.

--people have evolved from the state of being scared unlike those from the 70's or 80's. I enjoy all the old classics, past, present, and I’m sure I will love the futures horror as well. Being 29, if the makes me an old fool for liking old classics, so be it. It's hard to find good well-written horror, so I appreciate it more. I don't really find myself scared by much (Well, ‘except wasps, but they're the minions of Satan). Ha-Ha I even enjoy what most people would refer to as 'nightmares'... just an enjoyably horror movie experience. I have seen my fair share of horror movies and there is one thing I have noticed about this genre that is different to others. Horror movies (to me) seem to be prosecuted when they don't follow a certain direction of its genre. For instance, a romance movie may end in total disaster taking the romance out of the movie and be called great. However, if a horror is deemed not scary it is trashed and sentence to a lifetime of negative opinions (This normally comes from the newer members but I'm calling it as I see it here, if you have seen otherwise please correct me).

It seems that there is far too much emphasize on the scare factor in horror movies these days. When I pick up a horror movie in a store I have rarely ever picked it up for the scare factor. In the beginning when I started getting into movies the horror genre never appealed to me. I thought "Why would anyone want to a see a movie when they are going to turn their heads every time the main part of what makes a horror movie appears on screen?”. I was just silly about it. I realized that horror movies can project what other movies cannot. Not only were they able to turn things of absolute fiction into people's nightmares, but also they were able to do things that are appropriate for its genre and not in society. The horror genre is of great importance to most of the people I know, including myself.

Well, as Dakota noted. Not much scares me per se BUT I love THE ATTEMPT. The build up, work, acting, scenery required to try and create a spooky atmosphere, a creepy creature. I DO miss good creature features which, perhaps because it takes MONEY to make a good creature feature like THE THING, people dont do much of anymore. I LOVE the old, often corny, b&w sci fi and creature features of "the atomic age" in the 50s. Every decade has a "gift" for certain movies. The 80s alone can be noted just by the music and style. I love all kinds of horrors throughout the halls of time. One of the best PLOTS ever and ahead of its time and NOT boring at all is the silent KABINET OF DR. CALIGARI.
I cant believe ANYONE here believes you are a troll, klownz, lol.
