you know, now thinking about this, i should've made this closer to october but whatever
are you the person who barely flinches at all, and are used to horror films or are you someone who gets nightmares for weeks on end from seeing one?
i mean, at the present moment i don't think there's any that comes to mind, but the reason why i bring this up is because i remember whenever the TV would have random horror netflix movies on, and as much of a straight face as I try to put on, I really cant stand some of the grotesque stuff I see sometimes lol
I feel like me staying up past midnight to catch horror films on TV as a child has desensitised me to most horror films. That being said, I don’t actively go out of my way to watch them either now although I do enjoy the genre...
I think my first run in with a horror flick was that infamous sun bed scene from Final Destination 3... now that has stayed with me for 13 years
Here's the thing. The gist of that movie is that there's a kid who summons a monster that eats people everytime he has a nightmare. And like... the movie has some pretty gross effects like tons of blood, bones cracking (and I REALLY hate that) and just ughhhhh there was even one scene with eyeballs falling out aaaaa this movie is just so extra with the grossness lol
I flinch a lot at jump scares and cover my eyes during excessive gory scenes (99% of any Saw movie for example) but I don't get nightmares from movies anymore. The scariest I've seen is the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. There's not a ton of gore in it but boy does it build up suspense. It Follows is the most unique horror film I've seen and the one I usually recommend when someone wants to watch something more modern. I'm on the fence about the Halloween reboot. There are things I like about it and just as many that I don't.
