Horror movies are utterly pointless. Most of the time, the effects are so unrealistic that they're anything but frightening. I go for the more subtle intensity myself. Monster movies are just retarded.

Gore on the other hand is something that I just cannot stand. I won't even watch it. What's the point? What does it represent? Someone getting their head chopped off? Really subtle. Fail.

And the camera brilliantly turns away from the actual ear-cutting, so you don't even see anything.

The best type of horror is when you don't even see what's going on, take Jaws for example.

Yeah, Jaws, that type of horror is fine. I just don't like the Friday the 13th type stuff.

There's a big difference between Psychological Horror / Thriller and Slasher / Gore shit.

I love the former, hate the latter. But I love The Thing, which blends both pretty well... go figure.

You know I read recently that Jaws was meant to have many more scenes where you see the shark, but there were problems with the mechanical shark so they filmed most of his attack scenes from Jaws' POV instead. Totally unintentional, and absolutely brilliant. Just a great film, love Jaws...and then of course they ruined it with some incredibly shitty sequels

Jaws: The Revenge is great for a laugh every once and a while though.

My brother used to watch all sorts of horror movies when we were a kid....I don't know why my parents allowed him to rent those when 2 out of 3 kids ran out of the room screaming and crying! To this day I'm still terrified of Michael, Freddy and Jason. My sister was able to overcome her fear with the Scream movies. I saw about 30 seconds of it and left the theater to watch another movie! Don't even get me started on Psycho

I hate anything that's going to scare the crap out of me. Even if it's just a mystery movie with no gore. I'm a big wimp.

Gore
The only thing better than a gory movie is applying the makeup

Scary movies don't scare me.. they make me giggle and/or grin.

I don't like gory movies either, not because they're particularly scary, just because they're gross. My sister went to see the remake of Halloween and I said "no thank you."

Zombies freak me out though.

I find genuinely very little frightens me in movies, not counting "jumps scares" which don't really count. That's surprise, not terror.

However, I really really hate the torture porn genre. There's almost nothing redeeming about those films in any way.

You know, as if porn wasn't degrading enough...some of that stuff, even though I know it's a not real I just can't look at women being reduced to that.

Aww, my mum was a zombie in that video. I'm offended on her behalf.

!!!

My mates all bag me because I can't even watch Scream.

And my mate said to download Saw 3, apparently it's real blood/gore but I will never ever watch it.
