Horror holidays!

Hello my Children of the Night! :vampire:

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?

:joy: :crazy_face:

Awww :blush: 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.

Hey BB.

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.

:grinning:

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. :wink:

@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.

Cheers!

Trigger Warning 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 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.

@Montezuma
I don’t know for sure if this is a horror flick but here you go

That one is pretty good. Nothing I would buy, but cool animation.

Sorry to hear about your experience btw.

Trigger Warning:

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:

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 :slight_smile:
