that is weird to me. If horror made me feel as bad as it did when i was a kid i'd want nothing to do with it.
Anyway most horror i do end up seeing is bad because my gf has a thing for bad horror. It's comforting to her. So we watch a lot of it. I have a similar thing with bad action films but i don't subject her to them. It's like i know its shit and would never let anyone know i'm watching this, but there's something comforting in it. I guess because as a kid she watched bad horror films, and as a kid i watched bad action films. I find that if i think of my childhood friends it was often like that. They wanted to watch either bad action or bad horror. Sometimes bad comedies. But it always had to be bad. I'd be suspicious of kids who liked good films. Unless by accident.
