My husband just asked if I want to watch a horror movie and gave a couple of titles. After such a great day with our children decorating our home to watch a horror movie? I started laughing and said, no, better we would choose any Christmas movie.I once said that I would start watching horror movies when I will no longer be alone. Long-time I am not alone, and we have watched some really great horror movies together, but I still fear to go to the toilet after watching horror at night.
And the fantasy is getting so stormed that thanks to the movies, I even imagine a dangerous lurking ghost moving or a black object of uncertain origin behind each tree even when riding a bicycle in the quiet pine forest leading to the seashore.
Ted Bundy, a soulless charismatic American serial killer, said in his pre-death interview that his determination to turn perverse fantasies into action was inspired by sadistic porn movies. And even a man without any fantasy can come up with ideas from the movies.
On the other hand, if I had never seen any of the bloody scenes of violence on TV, I’d probably be curiously and naively wandering the night streets of the megapolis backstreets until finally, any freak psych would slaughter. So horror movies give fear and ideas to the masses, and courage to the bad guys?
The Chinese have a saying about the centipede (which bites very painfully) – “If you talk about centipede you will meet centipede”. it’s from the series that thoughts materialize…
