Do you like to be scared? Do you enjoy the feeling of your heart racing and your palms sweating?
If so, then scary movies may be right up your alley. But what makes a good scary movie? And what are some of the best ones out there?
Firstly, let’s talk about what makes a scary movie good. For me, it’s all about the suspense.
A good scary movie will have you on edge from start to finish, wondering what’s going to happen next. It should keep you guessing until the very end and leave you feeling satisfied but also a little bit uneasy.
One of my favourite horror movies is “The Shining”. This classic film directed by Stanley Kubrick is a masterclass in building tension and suspense.
From the moment we meet Jack Torrance (played brilliantly by Jack Nicholson), we know something isn’t quite right. As we watch his descent into madness, we’re left wondering what he’s going to do next.
Another great horror movie is “The Exorcist”. This 1973 film directed by William Friedkin tells the story of a young girl who becomes possessed by a demon. The film is incredibly intense and unsettling, with some truly disturbing scenes that will stay with you long after the credits roll.
Of course, not all horror movies are created equal. Some are just plain bad.
But even bad horror movies can be fun to watch in their own way. Take “Troll 2” for example. This 1990 film is widely regarded as one of the worst movies ever made, but it has developed a cult following over the years due to its unintentionally hilarious dialogue and terrible special effects.
So why do we like scary movies? Well, for some people it’s simply an adrenaline rush.
Others enjoy being scared because it helps them confront their fears in a safe environment. And then there are those who just love the thrill of watching something that they know is going to scare them.
In conclusion, scary movies are not for everyone, but for those who enjoy them, they can be a thrilling and entertaining experience. Whether you prefer classic horror films like “The Shining” and “The Exorcist” or you’re more of a fan of cheesy B-movies like “Troll 2”, there’s something out there for everyone. So the next time someone asks you if you like scary movies, don’t be afraid to say yes.
