It is no surprise that the 31st of October shall be the day I talk about horror. But while everybody had prepared tons of stuff for this moment, have had various horror-related posts during the whole month or over the past week, I just mention it briefly today. Mostly because I have been some what lazy this past few weeks (I was bound to loose my blogging motivation at some point) and more or less because I am not a fan of horror movies. Still, I wanted to talk to you about two TV-shows that are horror and which make me think that maybe I’m a horror person after all…. maybe.
The picture of this post appears after the jump because I don’t want to have those pictures permanently on my main page because one of them actually disturbs me a lot.
First of all I want to let you know that though I try to stay away from horror movies, I still can’t say I’ve had total absence of them over the years. I’ve seen some, including Saw and Paranormal Activity, Grudge and even House of Wax despite the awful Paris Hilton who I was happy to see killed off quite early. So, I’m speaking of experience when I say that I don’t enjoy the genre as much as I would like to and don’t even get me started with the Asian horror classics – I just find it all way too much.
And then the contradiction in me kicks in and I start watching The Walking Dead in the middle of the night and clapping at the amazing scene that just took place! Seriously, I don’t know why this happened but I absolutely love this show despite my distance from horror. I guess it is the suspense and the high-level gore or I don’t know, I just know that I love it, I don’t mind watching it in the dark and I wait forward to see what The Governor does in season 3 since I’ve heard he is one of the best villains ever.
My horror love for TV-shows continues with American Horror Story which I also love. I don’t mind the creepy theme song and the scary plots at all. Which again is weird and especially because I would never watch a horror movie in the dark (which reminds me that I have to watch Cabin in the Woods soon..) but when it comes to the American Horror Story, I can’t enjoy it when it’s sunny. No way, I need complete darkness to get the full experience and I’m not afraid of it. Go figure!
So as my short post is coming to an end, I know, I’m just so lazy lately, I was just wondering if you might have an answer for me. Why do I keep disliking horror movies and constantly love a whole season filled with gore and zombies and dark corridors where anything can jump at you? I might have a special prize for the best answer as well.. no money involved because I’m a student but I bet it is worth it. Discuss my minions of horror, why I love this genre in shows and not movies!?
PS: For Halloween I’m going to wear my anti-social student costume aka staying at home in my pj’s eating ice cream and watching movies. What is your costume going to be like?0
