Hello my Children of the Night!
Any fellow horror buffs watching horror movies around this holiday?
Or reading any good horror novels?
Today I walked to the library and picked up Drag Me To Hell and the book, Clown in a Cornfield.
I’m really staying in the Christmas spirit, no?
omg that is really awesome that you can find entertainment value in that stuff.
i cant it makes me on edge
the last thing i watched that was horror was paranormal activity. a long time ago (after psychosis though).
i just cant cant
I’m sorry. I should’ve thought about trigger content before I made this thread.
Please forgive me.
Please forgive me.
no need…I do not get triggerred easily at all unless I am actually watching any of those freaky things :)))
thanks for understanding!
I’ve seen so much crazy stuff in my life that horror genre stuff is sort of cathartic.
I don’t want to go into details of what I’ve seen. Now
that would be triggering for fellow forumers.
Started watching House of a Thousand Corpses last night again. I’m so desensitized that very few horror movies get to me anymore. Now horror novels always give me chills because my imagination goes crazy in a good way.
This Clown in the Cornfield sounds interesting. I’m gonna look into that one.
Scweeeeeeet! Lol. Yeah, Clown in a Cornfield is written by Adam Cesare. I hope I spelled his last name correctly.
Watching Die Hard 1 and 2 tomorrow night. Proper Xmas viewing.
I used to read James Herbert and Stephen king when I was a kid. I loved that stuff then.
Modern horror movies are too scary for me. I wonder why I could handle horror books but am freaked out by movies?
@velociraptor I’ll be enjoying Tenet on Xmas night.
Sweeeeeeet. Die Hard is a Christmas movie in my book.
@labratmat, Yeah, I think a lot of modern horror can end up being a contest as to who has the most gore or disturbing imagery.
Some franchises and directors I don’t support are things like torture porn.
To me it shows a severe lack of imagination.
I tend to enjoy a lot of older horror movies, but occasionally a modern gem will pop up.
And with horror fiction a lot of writers turned to true crime books and thrillers to support themselves. But there’s still a lot of great and imaginative horror fiction out there.
I saw a 2 headed demon come out of my ex husband’s as I was trying to go to sleep one night. Folks I don’t do LSD or any other non Rx drugs. I almost peed my pants. I wasn’t on clozapine back then. That scared the bejesus out of me. I screamed and my husband woke up. I started rebuking that thing in the name of Jesus. It went away. (Rebuking is Trigger Warning christianese for telling a “demon or the devil” to leave you alone). Not trying to be religious here. Just stating what happened.
Yeah no I don’t watch horror films. I Don’t watch them.
I don’t know for sure if this is a horror flick but here you go
The Nightmare Before Christmas (also known as Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas) is a 1993 American stop-motion animated musical dark fantasy film directed by Henry Selick (in his feature directorial debut) and produced and conceived by Tim Burton. It tells the story of Jack Skellington, the King of "Halloween Town" who stumbles through a portal to "Christmas Town" and becomes obsessed with celebrating the holiday. Danny Elfman wrote the songs and score, and provided the singing voice...
That one is pretty good. Nothing I would buy, but cool animation.
Sorry to hear about your experience btw.
Before I started taking meds I saw a huge demon materialize out of air and shove my shoulders. It haunts me to this day. I don’t tell many people about it. It still doesn’t make much sense in my mind.
I wanted to watch The Invisible Man tonight but I can’t afford to buy it.
Aww that’s a bummer. I checked that one out from the library. I thought it was pretty decent. It definitely had a few genuinely suspenseful moments.
This is my idea of a horror movie at Xmas:
It's a Wonderful Life is a 1946 American Christmas fantasy drama film produced and directed by Frank Capra, based on the short story and booklet The Greatest Gift, which Philip Van Doren Stern published in 1943. The film stars James Stewart as George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams to help others, and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody (Henry Travers). Clarence shows George how he, George, has touched the lives...
I love that film. Different strokes for different folks!
@LazyandCrazy, I just ordered this on DVD:
Beyond the Black Rainbow is a 2010 Canadian science fiction horror film written and directed by Panos Cosmatos in his feature film debut. It stars Michael Rogers and Eva Allan.
Beyond the Black Rainbow was distributed by Magnet Releasing, a sub-division of Magnolia Pictures. Produced and filmed in Vancouver, the film premiered at the 2010 Whistler Film Festival, in Whistler, British Columbia. Through 2011, it was also screened at several film festivals across North America, including Tribeca F...
I put that on my list of horror movies to watch next year.
Sweet! It’s gotten really mixed reviews. But I’ve read that if you enjoy midnight movies and off-the-beaten-path cinema than it’s definitely your cup of tea.
I only watch horror movies, really. I love anything horror.
@Montezuma, you said you like older horror movies. Have you watched The Innocents (1961)? That’s my favourite movie. You should watch it if you haven’t
