First a confession. I LOVE horror movies, the good ones at least.
There’s something about sitting in a dark room(movie theatre) with the music pulsing and my heart rate increasing waiting, anticipating and yet still jumping when the maniac/monster/demon jumps out of the shadows.
I demand certain things from my horror movies - there has to be a resolution. The bad guy/monster has to be destroyed. Otherwise why watch. The characters have to be pro-active at some point in the movie. That’s just a good rule of storytelling.
Horror movies have a really bad rap out there, ‘cause so many are cheap, badly written and push gore over thrills. But there are good ones out there.
The movies I have loved. Of course, Alien/Aliens. Considering when they were made, these look amazing, had incredible tension and probably the best heroine of any movie ever made. The original Halloween, Lost Boys, more recently 28 Days Later. All great movies and all relying more on story than gore.
There are more, I’ve seen a LOT of horror movies, but these come to mind as my favs.
As for the Skor Blizzard… it’s loaded with fat, and sugar and might cause brain freeze.. But it’s delicious.. Enough said
