These days the most famous kind of movies are horror movies and that’s because people like the idea of getting spooked and some would say that’s perfectly normal. I mean most of my friends only watch horror movies and nothing else, which I find ridiculous in a way because there are so many interesting movies out there that are way better and emotional than horror movies. For some reason though people are more and more attracted to them as time goes on.
I guess that the feeling of being agitated while waiting for a jumpscare to come up might be exciting, and I get that even I might enjoy a good horror movie every now and then, but I just don’t get why people like them so much in a level where they won’t agree to watch anything else. The only horror movies I have ever watched and actually enjoyed were old ones, that had a specific old-style charm to them and they are not focused on just scaring you rather they try to make you feel what the character is feeling in the movie.
Movies these days have been all about exaggerating and being as bloody as they can, when in reality all you need to do in order to make a horror movie cause fear, is to show the viewers the different emotions the characters are going through and pass those emotions out to the viewers.
As you can probably tell from what I have written I personally am a fun of psychological horror. How about you? Do you think that horror movies are better these days than the old ones? And maybe you can help me out to understand why teens these days are so attracted to horror movies.
