Among the many things I don't get is why people like horror movies. They basically do nothing for me. I kind of understand why people like the ones that are so stupid they are funny, but then why not just watch a comedy? As for ones that are actually scary, or on that rare occasion truly horrifying, who wants to be horrified by choice? I have been reminded of my lack of understanding by the upcoming movie The Strangers where, I believe, some people break into a house and torture and terrorize the couple inside. It reminds me of a movie I saw on TV when I was about 10 where some people broke into a house and terrorized and denigrated the female owner including a scene where she's bawling as they make her eat dog food. At the time it scared the bejeezus out of me (Is bejeezus a word outside of Louisiana?), and now I just think "watching a woman sob hysterically as she's treated like a dog is supposed to be entertainment?"
And yet I know that many completely normal, healthy people like a good horror flick and like being scared. Probably several of you fall into this category. I just don't get it myself.
You're all a bunch of freaks.
