yea ive learned that most horror movies arent really worth seeing at the theater anyways... heck, most movies period arent worth the $30 for 2 tickets and a bucket of popcorn. only exceptions are the highly anticipated's like the hobbit and harry potter, then i'll make an exception for stuff like anchorman 2 (cant flipping wait for that one!) and hugo (great movie, saw it twice in cinema. worth every penny!).
there have been several horror flicks ive wanted to see, like sinister and evil dead 2 but the local theaters didnt play them.. and when i finally got to see them i was glad i didnt pay to watch it at the theater. the last horror i saw in theaters was paranormal activity 3... and that wasnt really worth the money.. but i really like that theaters popcorn lol.

A young boy answered , saying "Paranormal Activity".
He was not "Happy" with the movie, which number it was, he didn't say. I have seen Very few horror movies during the last 26 years that I have had my house open every night.
When the doorknob was turning our dog heard it too.
My Wife was across a narrow hallway at her computer wondering how come I was having so much trouble opening the door?
Then I began speaking loudly and I was right upstairs almost directly above her leading a tour.
She began yelling loudly:"JIM! Come down here right away!" Which I did. Finding nobody anywhere in that section of the house.
Doors all locked. Nobody hiding anyplace.
Just as the title says. A bit of a fun and informative thread.

Growing up, I loved watching the Twilight Zone, especially the horror episodes with a dramatic twist at the end. When I first got into reading horror fiction, I found H.P. Lovecraft's work to be terrifying, thrilling, and enthralling. Now, I'm trying to make it as a professional author and I...
One thing I've noticed is that there's a spectrum when it comes to comfort levels with ambiguity as a plot device in horror. Some people prefer the very ambiguous, creeping, growing dread of films such as Witch and Hereditary while others prefer the explicit, in-your-face, "I'm going to kill you...
