I like some scary movies like Psycho, The Ring, The 6th Sense, and Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but when a movie plot involves a crazy serial killer hacking up dozens of attractive yet stupid people who like to investigate strange noises they hear out in the woods in the middle of the night, then it's a huge turnoff. Movies like Saw, Hostel, etc. have no appeal to me. I'd really like to know what kind of person gets turned on by watching people get tortured and killed as the main plot of a movie. I'm also not drawn to movie posters that have disturbing images with lots of blood and gore all over them. Maybe I'm just a wimp. I know it is not fair for me to criticize so many movies in this genre that I have not seen, but life's not fair.
I also find it ironic that many people who shun movies because of sex or nudity have no problem enjoying a graphic, violent, horror movie. Which is worse, seeing a boob or watching someone get decapitated? It's nice to know you have such high morals Jeffrey Daumer! Sorry for the rant. I'll get off my soapbox now. I think I'm going to watch something really scary tonight like The Ghost and Mister Chicken. Happy Halloween.
