Things That Go Bump In The Night: The Horror Genre From The Perspective Of A Scaredy Cat

Every October and in preparation for Halloween, most people I know tend to watch scary movies. It helps them get into the spirit of Halloween by having a good scare. While most kids love Halloween for dressing up in their costumes and going door-to-door to get a bag full of candy to keep them on a sugar high for days, adults prefer to have their socks knocked off with something terrifying. This is why scare events like haunted houses are widely popular this time of the year. If you’re a gamer, maybe there’s a certain horror video game you love to play and would have a horror video game marathon to get into the Halloween mood. Me? I can’t stand the horror genre.

Hollywood Films – The Land Of Remakes, Book Adaptations, And Sequels/Prequels

Today’s films hardly feel new and original. Every year it seems like we have remakes of old films, films based on books, or sequels/prequels of Hollywood blockbusters that studios want to squeeze every last cent out of if they can. I don’t care for remakes of older films, especially if those oldies are perfectly fine on their own or not even that old to begin with. Good examples are Footloose and Total Recall.
