Hate to Love Horror Movies One of the newest upcoming horror movie that just came out is IT. IT is the rendition of Stephen King’s classic killer clown story “Pennywise the Dancing Clown.” I honestly have mixed emotions about this movie; two polar opposite sides of me are telling me two different things. One is saying “Go watch it now. Feel the thrill. You will love it” and the other side is begging me “No, no, no, please don’t watch it. You will hate it. Seriously out of anything why did it have to be freakin clowns ?” That’s the thing that I never understood about myself and others like me. Why in the world do people put themselves in a situation where they purposely make themselves vulnerable to be scared? Stephen King describes the reasons…show more content…
However now, after reading King’s article some of these physiological reasons connect It’s a “psychic relief… to lapse into simplicity irrationality and even outright madness is extended so rarely” (King 358). The permission that my parents gave me to watch a scary movie could be their subconscious minds trying to exercise that irrational thoughts; by letting a child watch a scary movie and witness the sight of fear is fulfilling the internal “mental illness” as King writes. Now the similar thing my parents did to me, I do by myself. I know myself and I truly hate horror movies. I am always stress and tense watching the movie and I would always get nightmares that recurred all the time, but I’m still here sitting in the theater watching another one.

Everything that came out of his mouth made everyone aggravating. I just wanted him to die so bad, I just kept thinking “ the best part of the movie is when scumbag Steve dies.” The hurtful thoughts that come up in our heads is set on a scale of crazy.

Then the movie caught my attention because it just started. There wasn’t much at first, especially at the time I didn't understand much in general; so I was about to leave the room. Then “bang” out of nowhere and zombies start popping out, and this one chick in the movie is kicking all the zombie butts. It’s pretty much movie about zombies that is like on steroids, and the main character, Alice, is immune to the virus; so then she uses that advantage and her fighting skills to save others from the apocalypse. Alice is just running and flying around everywhere blasting zombie guts everywhere. Those kind of scenes fire me up inside and makes my hype! King says that “ horror movies, like roller coasters, have always been the special province of the young” (King 358). It's very true that after a while you decline of horror movies are being watched by the increase of age pass 40. The movie The Final Destination, the fourth one in it’s series, just came out on DVD. My whole family was set to watch it; 20 minutes in the movie, just pass the catastrophic speedway death scene my parents said “ Nope, Nope
