Seen any good horror movies lately? Come on, we all love movies. Television and film is simply a great vehicle to relaxation. This is why we enjoy those weekly series and much-anticipated theatrical releases. What better way to escape from reality than to live vicariously through an interesting character for a couple hours? For me personally, horror movies are the best. There’s just something about the terror and suspense of it all. Sure, they can be gory, but they’re fake at the same time. In the world of cinema, horror movies are certainly a genre of their own.
Have you ever seen any of the classics? I’m talking about the birth of the slasher film. While I do appreciate the black and white horror movies, there’s just something about color when it comes to fear. Halloween is probably one of the greatest horror classics of all time. If you haven’t seen this one, you’re sadly missing out. It’s as simple as a lunatic pursuing a teenage girl. Does it really get any better than that? One of the neat things about many of the old-school horror movies is their simplicity. While they don’t possess a stunning and intricate plot like some of the more contemporary stuff, they did and do scare the mess out of viewers everywhere. Some more of these classic slasher flicks include, Nightmare on Elm Street, The Howling, The Fog, and Terror Train. If you’re into horror movies, these babies are a must see. You can find them at pretty much any local video store.
Where do you go for your horror movies? Do you hit up Blockbuster or Hollywood Video? Maybe you have adapted to technology and started a Netflix account. Regardless of your rental preference, you know what you like. But where can you find the greatest, most vast selection of horror movies? The answer is simple; the Internet. If you haven’t already noticed, there are an abundance of films online these days. I don’t care what title you’re looking for, you will find it on the World-Wide-Web if you can’t find it anywhere else. There have been a number of occasions when I was searching high and low in video stores and superstores, but just couldn’t seem to locate a certain horror movie. Well, sure enough, I did find it online, and for a good price. Beef up your collection of horror movies by getting online today.
If there is one thing in the world that gets my brother excited is the gift of horror movies. I don’t know why it is but you can get him any number of these movies and he’s a happy boy. He can’t even explain what it is that he likes about them, but it is probably the same thing most of us get from such a movie. There is a rush we get when we are scared, and perhaps that is an additive feeling for my brother. Honestly, I’d much rather he got a rush from a movie rather than turning to drugs for the same thing.
Horror movies have been around for decades, but they keep getting better. My brother says that the plots aren’t necessarily better, but the effects have certainly moved ahead by leaps and bounds. Some of the best horror movies, according to my brother, are the older ones. Some of the classics cannot be beat, and even the remakes of them are lacking the same charm the originals had and still have.
For me, I don’t need to see a lot of blood to be freaked out by horror movies. In fact, the less I see and the more that is left up to my imagination, the more scared or freaked out I get. The more the movie presents to you the less you have to use your mind. When it comes to good horror movies, at least for me, I have to have the element of surprise and I have to know that I don’t know what is going to happen next.
Whatever your taste in horror movies might be, you can find something to give you what you want. You can find the newer movies in theaters and you can find the older ones are now out on DVD for a very good price. If you have a fan of horror movies in your family like I do, you don’t have to think too hard about what to get them for Christmas. Though I don’t get my brother the movies any more because he has so many of them, there are plenty of other things to buy. Each year I go to Spencer’s and gets him a two-foot tall figure from any of the number of movies that he loves. The collection he has is growing, and he looks forward to the next one I will get him each year.
