Horror

(And horror-influenced/horror-adjacent stuff -- thrillers with horror elements, zombie stuff, splatter films, etc.!)

I inherited my love of horror from my mom, who always watched a lot of horror movies with me! But I also grew to love it by sharing it with friends, getting excited about the really riveting stuff and just goofing around with the sillier stuff at sleepovers in high school. Here's to you, Clock Tower 2: The Struggle Within.

Today my tastes in horror are very diverse. I absolutely adore complex, "smart" horror that makes you think and/or gets you really invested -- "meta slasher" is my favorite horror film genre, if that tells you anything. But I also love camp, cheese and lightheartedness on its own fun merits, and I don't think it automatically makes movies or games less good, thought-provoking or interesting. In fact, I think people are way too quick to dismiss budget/amateur stuff as just funny-bad because it's budget/amateur. But I also love having fun with legitimately so-bad-it's-good horror, too. (Personally, though, I'm not into stuff that's really exploitative or really gross/gory/fucked-up for shock.)
