Halloween is here, time for candy costumes, kids, haunted houses, and other fun things. Most importantly the thing I look forward to is the scary movies. I love scary movies I could watch them all day with my friends, father, and girl friend. I love the creepy surprises leaking around every corner, wondering if the monster is going to kill them or will they get away. I have been watching scary movies since I was little, just my dad and I watching all kinds of horror movies my dad was more of a syfI person he was into a lot of monsters and aliens, while I was into possession kind of movies with demons and paranormal entities. Although my dad and I loved different scary movies there was only one type of scary that couldn’t make a father and son any closer. My dad and I where obsessed with zombies, I think we have seen almost every zombie movie ever made in the history of movies. I don’t know why we love them so much all I know is that it started off my scary movie obsession, its pretty much the base or the hall of fame of my whole scary movie vibe. I crave the high climax of whats going to happen next but, I cant say the same for my girl friend. She cant stand them, she squirms and turns away from the movie and hates being scared. A lot of people are like that and I’m here to inform you why.
Some people like me, are thrill seekers and enjoy the rush of being scared they are usually the type of people who have to see the scary movies as soon as they come out or who are the first people to hype about the newest roller coasters and vibe off of the rush from the speeds, turns, and the dramatic down hill slops that gives you that tingling feeling in you body. I read in an artical that a lot of the time its not the fact that its just a scary movie, its the memories, and or that fun experience that you have with your friends that makes you come back for more to try and get that feeling or that fun time back, meaning trying to repeat the trill. I also read that about ten percent of the population enjoys or craves an adrenalin rush and that almost that whole ten percent love rollercoasters. It has been also proven that people don’t scare easy or enjoys the feeling of being scared has a intense physiological reactions. That mean they are more sensitive to things.like a string of hair touching you neck or the annoying tag on you shirt.
Some people turn to scary movies to compare or to look for changes if they are familiar with the story. For example, in the Harry Potter books that a lot of people have read even if they were not fans of the book and went and seen that movie, but those who have read the books all noticed that the book was nothing like the movie and some people get a sort of excitement that they noticed it and also they enjoy it because even though they read the book the still do not know whats going to happen next.
Like I said not everyone likes scary movies, and I would like to get into why. There are many different reasons why people hate scary movies. One reason why some people might not like scary movies is because the first time they saw a scary movie it probably wasn’t the best experience, like for example, lets say you went on a date with someone at a young age or some point of time in your life, and the date didn’t go as plained. It was a very terrible time or right after the movie you did something very embarrassing in you mental mind that can mess up you whole preference on scary movies because of the fear that the situation might repeat. Another reason why some people don’t like scary movies is because of the fact that it makes you feel venerable like you out of control of the like and they fact of not having control of something is very unconfinable to a lot of people. Another reason that connects to that is that when after you get done with the movie you think a bad spirit or something followed you back home attached to your religious beliefs so they tend to avoid the spiritual movies dealing with the devil and oe any kind of demons because its unsettling to the religious beliefs of some people. Gender sometimes plays a big roll in the preference of scary movies. Mr. Sparks says that, ” Male are more likely to become more intergraded of a scary movie. As females are more likely to see scary movies on a date or with a male with them. Spark says the reason for this is because men are socialized to be brave and enjoy threatening things, also that men may derive social gratification from not letting a scary movie bother them, its the idea of mastering something threatening. While women are not often going to see scary movies with other women sparks reasoning is that it is a natural comfort for a think the reason for this is because since I can remember or have learned is that I the house hold including mine the male has always been the protector. Whenever something went wrong or someone was threatened or feel varnarble my father was always the first one to call if I was ever scared and need something I had my dad on speed diel because I knew he would take care of it. Same with my sister as a kid if something was wrong I was the first one she called, when she was scared at night she would always come in my bed because I made her feel safe.
My thoughts are people always are physicking themselves out before they even see the movie. I think the people who expects it to be super scary are almost always disappointed because the over estimate the movie so it never gets to them which is a let down so the people who do that don’t find scary movies scary anymore. I think the people who don’t think much of the movie who usually hates scary movies scare there selves no necessarily they are scared before they even see the movie so the slightest thing freaks them out because they are thinking about when the scary parts are coming and not just watching and enjoying the movie its self . I would just like to say just because a movie scares you don’t show it away try to enjoy it or use the movie to get closer to that guy you like, and remember its all in your head, Happy Halloween everyone.
