Experience Fear With Today's Horror Movies

Experience Fear With Today's Horror Movies
By Tom Gibson

What is it about fear that so many of us find addictive? I'm not talking about healthy fears like keeping your hand out of the fire or you'll get burnt, or the general fears which keep safe from harm. No, what I'm talking about is the pleasure we get from voluntarily putting ourselves in from of a horror movie with the sole purpose of scaring the living daylights out of ourselves. Not only that, but it seems that the more fear we experience, the more enjoyment we get! Sounds like a bit of a contradiction that!

For the young lads having a sofa date with a new girlfriend, there is often and ulterior motive as they slide Freddy Krueger into the DVD player, in the vain hope that their new love will cuddle up to them for protection from the terror on the TV.

But naughtiness aside, I think with all the pressures that are put upon us as a modern society, what most folks find appealing in good ole horror movies, is an escape from reality. Ghosts, gore, demons, and monsters from the depths of hell, all do a pretty good job with this. It's often said that staying home is the new going out, and this has never been truer with all the fantastic home entertainment systems that adorn many a living room these days. Watching your horror movies on big screen TV's with stereo surround sound and crystal clear pictures, really does enhance the feelings of shock, fright, and severe panic.

It's a strange thing but I've only been to see one horror movie at the cinema in the last 5 years. Usually, when I go to the movie theatre, it's to watch action or sci-fi movies. Yet at home, I would imagine more than 50% of the films viewed are horror movies. Weird that! Hey, maybe it's because I feel safe in the house!

The great thing about internet shopping is the abundance of movies available online. It doesn't matter what title you want, whether it's the latest release or an old Christopher Lee Dracula movie, you're sure to find it on the word wide web.

The brief escape from reality, which horror movies bring us, means they will continue to be a popular choice in our viewing pleasure. It's not really necessary to analyze why we like horror, because half the fun of watching is the chance to just kick back and enjoy without using any brain power. We don't need to think, just watch through the fingers in front of our eyes. But be prepared and expect the unexpected, because you're gonna get scared, real scared, and we don’t want that, do we?
