On a scale of 1-10 how into horror are you? I am definitely 10. Without horror my life would be pretty bleak.

Eh, I'm not too super into horror in regards to movies, literature and the like, but I like to get my fix every once in awhile. My problem is, I've just really lost interest in the breed of horror that concentrates more on gore than the paranormal or psychological aspects of fear and for awhile, that was the only stuff really coming out and getting any attention.

In short, I love a good ghost story (even if its fake) way more than a slasher flick/novel. So...I guess on a scale from 1-10, I'd go a 6.

I'm a 1. I do not like horror at all. I prefer good suspence, like in "5th Sense" with a sound plot and good characterization.
Who owns the land? Only the land knows. We mortals are passersby, and our lives are but a brief moment in the great span of time and space. We are born, we live out our lives, and most of us do the best we can with it, but the wind is forever, and the rivers flow forever to the sea, and all the seasons of the weathers will come and go after we are gone. But the Earth endures, the Earth is eternal" - Earl Hamner

Can't stand it myself. So tired of Zombies, Werewolves, Vampires and all the other assorted crap on TV and Movies these days.
My Life is scary enough without watching that crap.

Feel the same way about soap operas.....who the heck wants to watch other peoples fake problems? Just turn off the TV and step outside for a minute and you can see real problems.

I wish Hollywood would make movies about real people and real situations these days. We have been fighting a War for over 10 years and we've had a lot less than a dozen movies and TV shows about it that weren't total BS and portrayed the American Soldier as Evil.

I'm really tired of the rehashed 70's anti-hero "the U.S. Military is the Enemy" Crap.

The Greatest Philanthropist on the face of the Earth is the American Soldier
but you sure won't see that on Movies, TV or CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, BBC, CBC, et al....

I'll get of my soap box now.

Probably about a 2 or3. I get tired of who is trying to "out gore" the next. At least with sci-fi there is a story behind the movie... (well sometimes!) But as to who gets sawed, bludgeoned, or bit next.... (and how much blood they can show) who cares????

I'm with you on this, CaveRat. I cannot stand all these gory movies (1, because I think they're stupid and 2, because it helps desensitize people to how horrible blood and guts can be). And besides, how many more movies do we really need about demonic possessions, vampires and werewolves, people running around with chainsaws, evil priests, etc? All with the obligatory blood and guts, shot from 5 different camera angles, in slow-mo.

I'd much rather watch a really good (I'll settle for a "fair") suspense movie any day. Hollywood seems to have forgotten that the best special effects are in the minds of the viewers.

I guess I would fall low, in the 2-4 range. I like the older movies for pure nostalgia along with the non-CGI effects, such as the Hammer movies, the original Frankenstein, and such. The new stuff doesn't interest me in the slightest, with the one exception being "The Walking Dead". There is a lot of good human interaction in that show.
I'm more into comedies and some drama, but all of it has to ring true to me or the story is blown. Of course you gots to have fantasy. I'm a big "Willy Wonka" (Gene Wilder version), Wizard of Oz, Star Wars-type fan.
Loganinkosovo, you are so on the mark about movies and tv shows about our fighting men and women. I'm a student of World War 2 and loved the shows "Band of Brothers" and such, watching them with a techincal mind. The movies about our modern military shown in a positive light are few and far between. This has been a trend since Vietnam and Hollywood doesn't seem to want to give that up, which annoys the hell out of me.
And Loganinkosovo: thank you for your service. Those who choose that line of service and execute it with the utmost dedication and professionalism are the truest of Americans.

Thank you, Jim.


You have to understand something about Hollywood. The people who run it are very very far left of center in their politics and their mental stability as far as I'm concerned. They all say that WWII was the only "Just" war, the only "Good" war. What they won't mention is the reason they think WWII was a "Just" and "Good" war and every other war is bad, World War Two was the only war where the Communists were on Our Side.

Once you understand that you understand Hollywood. :)

You're preaching to the choir, logan. We could hold hands on this subject. Well, not hold hands but...moving on.
I think we had better leave the political talk for another place. You and I could agree all day on this, but I think the administrators come down on off-topic things like this. Kind of odd seeing that you are serving and freedom of speech is one of the many items on your "protect" list. And just to let you know where I'm coming from, it was the life ambition to join the Marines or Army back in 1982, but footfall injuries elliminated that dream. I had to keep my hand in it as a WW2 reenactor; that's the best I could do in my situation. At least my exotic weapons experience was provided.
One thing I have always wondered about the current slasher/gore movies is whether what we see on the screen is a deep-seated fantasy of the writer or director? Some of the death scenes have to be well-thought out in some sick mind (pot calling the kettle black).
