Both go hand in hand don’t they, but geez, it’s a winning formula isn’t it? I’ve been watching horror movies since the teen years. Horror movies in the 80’s were kinda cool – think Jason and Freddy and Michael Myers – yeah they were some really scary freak out moments. Then the one that really got me….. Poltergeist – that is still one of my all time most scariest ever to this day movies! (Rob Zombie movies really freak me out to….)
Of course there are the really gammy ones about to or the ones that it’s just all blood and gore and well just kinda dumb but mostly, they follow the same formula:
Group of people hanging out, telling stories, freaking each other out, strange noises happen, people start dying.
And we the audience sit there doing this:
DON’T: go in the cellar, go in the woods, go downstairs, go outside, answer the door, go for a swim, leave the group, stick your hand there or there – don’t you know there’s a psycho on the loose!
and then you go:
WHY WOULD YOU: go in the cellar, go in the woods, go downstairs, go outside, answer the door, go for a swim, leave the group, stick your hand there or there – don’t you know there’s a psycho on the loose!
And then you’re like:
REALLY? I soooo wouldn’t have: gone in the cellar, gone in the woods, gone downstairs, gone outside, answered the door, gone for a swim, left the group, stuck my hand there or there – didn’t you know that there was a psycho on the loose! And then you’re like:
So there you go – horror movies + cliches = WINNING!
Have a lovely weekend…… and remember…….
