King also explains our mental insanity through “sick jokes” in which he explains jokes that are harsh although we find them funny. King believes that watching horror movies and stating sick jokes allowed us to release our insanity. I do not believe that horror movies help us stay lucid. I actually believe that horror movies can lead to violence and affects a person’s mental status. King states that horror movies keep the “hungry alligators” under control.
The people who make horror movies really know how to get to the root of our fears and course that makes sense because scaring the wits out of us is their bread and butter. Whether they’re playing on our insecurities about own lives or bringing our darkest nightmares to life, we can’t get enough of horror movies. The truth is that we love the feeling of being afraid, it’s thrilling and gets our blood pumping, but we also want to feel that way in a safe environment i.e half hiding under the blanket in our bed at home. Now we all have our favorites when it comes to horror movies, some of us enjoy supernatural or religious themed stories while others like slasher or gore flicks, but I think we can all agree that when child actors appear in horror movies it makes them even more terrifying. Maybe it’s because we associate children with innocence so seeing one possessed by the demons or climbing out of tv screens really grabs our attention.
The main point of the article “Why We Crave Horror Movies” by Stephen King, is that many people enjoy reading and watching horror stories for many different reasons. One main reason King gives is that people just want to overcome their fears, show that they are brave. Others go just to have fun. But not the happy, playful type of fun rather fun that is dark,full of death and suspense. Many people enjoy this type of fun while others, like me, do not.
Which has, in turn, given female actors or characters the ability to outgrow such previous stereotypes that were once typically portrayed in horror films. For instance, generally in movies as Friday the 13th, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, American Psycho and others alike, the killer or bad “guy,” ironically was far too purposefully male, powerful, and merciless. The reason for
The monsters and the actors deserve an 8.5/10 because they were good, but not great because some of the actors did a horrible job in the movie acting and the monsters looked like it was the same as the movie Charlie’s Angels Full Throttle with the horrible movie effects like they were dangling on some kind of invisible string that couldn’t be seen which was so terrible that I almost threw the remote at the television, and turned off the movie. I would give the actors that were playing as the characters in the movie an 8/10 in acting in the movie, because they didn’t do a perfect job of acting but they at least got some good emotions into the mix giving the movie a little more spice and
Horror Films Horror Films are defined as unsettling films created to scare and frighten; cause stress, alarm and dread; and to awaken the worst hidden fears that are locked away in people’s subconscious, often in a terrifying and shocking climax while capturing their ascination at the same time (http://www.filmsite.org/horrorfilms.html) Horror films are easy to identify because they have a distinguished and recognizable pattern that happens again and again. They play on the audiences’ primal fears; they deal with their phobias, revulsions and terror of the unknown. Usually, their plots often include an evil force intruding in the lives of the living, seeking revenge or wanting to take possession of someone’s body. These examples are called cycles, and this is a process in which Horror Films are remade more than once or twice or their plot becomes a basis for another one, or that one movie is made to have several sequels or prequels until they run out of steam and then they would repeat the same pattern again (http://www.filmsite.org/supernatfilms.html ; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horror_film)

The Mad Genius of Alfred Hitchcock I am a great horror movie fan but I don’t like the blood and gore kind of movies. I like the horror thrillers and those that get me scared more psychologically than watching heads flying and so on. This director is one of my favorites and through his genius I couldn’t take a shower while alone at home for the longest time and whenever a bird made a noise above my head I cringed. Setting the Actresses Straight While rehearsing director Alfred Hitchcock’s now classic horror movie “Psycho” Janet Leigh wasn’t getting the famous shower scene just right. So Hitchcock took matters into his own hands and came at the nude actress like “Mrs.
Getting into the spirit of Halloween I decided to watch Coven because it was one of my favorite seasons. However, this scene being gruesome in all stuck out to me significantly because Cordelia Foxx (the woman in the image) had acid thrown onto her eyes which reminded me of the events that had occurred to Long Pross and Naeema Azar. Although Foxx 's situation is completely different from Pross and Azar, it made me recall when their situations were being
So therefore, Animal testing should not occur because it is hurting the animals and making them go extinct. Animals testing is torture and bad so we should stop testing on animals . Animal testing is mean and dangerous to the animals being tested on.One example is they were trying to test different shampoos to see if any of them burned their eyes. To do this they hold them up by there feet with clips to test the shampoos. They don’t get feed or taken care of.
Euthanasia literally means good death. However in our society euthanasia is intentionally ending a life in order to relieve suffering or pain. There are two ways to put people to death you either do it with their will or against their will. if you put someone to death against their will we usually call it murder.
