random facts & horror movies

#4: I LOVE horror films. Even bad ones. Or maybe especially bad ones. It depends on the mood I'm in. I know that there's a whole cognitive dissonance thing going on with my interest in the genre. Plus, there's the whole abjection thing. It's interesting to both identify and disidentify. I also love commentary on horror movies and hearing people talk about what scares them and why. There's an obvious human need to experience fear in a safe environment. I read somewhere that humans are the only species that scare themselves on purpose.

Happy Halloween!
