Horror and why I just don't find these movies scary any more
I still watched and loved other genres but there was always a special place in my twisted heart for these movies. I remember having to wait till my parents went to bed so I could catch a late night airing of Friday the 13th or The Thing which is and always will be one of my favourite movies with Kurt Russell in it. I loved the classics, all of them and by now I have seen probably 60% of films from the Horror genre that's really not a joke either but this post has little to do with my watching habits. What I really want to take about is what Horror has lost in the so many long years since its inception many moons ago. Its scare factor and edge, maybe I have become desensitised to it which in my case is probably true but in the last ten years I want to say my favourite genre has become nothing more then a bad joke.
