I’m a horror nerd, everyone knows that- I’ve seen every horror film, series, games… you name it! Even black & white oldies- no I’m not old! Just invested!!
And what have I learned? To stay fuckin alive!!
When I hear people that don’t like horror movies, I try not to judge, it’s ok you like chick-flicks or art/noir movies… it’s still good! But then I hear “I got into a strangers car!” Or “We went out to a discrete club with the locals!”
Um… Hello? Hasn’t anyone seen Hostel?
Fine, allow strangers in your car, go to an abandoned asylum, jump into a sketchy cage to see sharks! Accept rides or even better yet; a place to stay -from total strangers! I mean, the world as I say can be a beautiful place! There is happiness and rainbows! But there’s also reality!!! As a criminal psychologist I should know!!! Ok I’m calm (hair flip) …
So, thank you horror movies that got me out of trouble or death! If I didn’t sneak into the movie room while my dad was watching a horror movie when I was 3 years old, hiding behind the couch, so mesmerized with the world of horror (No! Don’t try this with any kid!!) I wouldn’t be who I am today!
Maybe that’s why no horror/thriller movie can wow me nowadays.
It’s not easy writing horror either, I’m trying even though I’m more of a psychological thriller writer, I would love if a movie or book could mesmerize me again, when it did back then.
Let’s see what this year brings, lots of remakes of my favorites and new ones, excited 👯
P.S Watch horror movies, it might save your life!!
