WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH HORROR MOVIES?!
When it comes to horror movies, there’s the good, the bad and the really bad!
These days, horror movies are laughable at best with so much emphasis or gory, outrageous and ridiculous scenes and hardly any storyline.
We have the OG horror movies like Child’s Play, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Amityvile Horror, Joy Ride, The Conjuring. Paranormal Activity, The Ring to name a few, Insidious, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Final Destination the list goes onnnn… These movies gave you the chillsss; Creepy and freaky just the way we like it. Some blood here and there, because it is not always about someone hacking away at people with no direction whatsoever.
Some may argue that the true essence of horror movies was lost during the odd transition where epics of actual horror movies were made. It wouldn’t be too farfetched to conclude that the memo on ‘how to write, direct and produce a horror movie’ was lost somewhere, somehow in this transition.
It really is mind-boggling when you watch movies like Ouija, Ouija board, The Nun, Wrong Turn 5 & 6, Jaws, The Human Centipede trilogy and so on. They make you want to cry and not in the way horror movies should. These movies have little or no depth, just a lot of screaming and running around like headless chickens. Let’s not even take into account the excessively bloody scenes. Cringeworthy.
Petitions need to be signed. There needs to be more quality horror movies to satisfy avid and dedicated horror movie lovers in the world. What we need, is a revolution.
