    I haven't seen it.. I'm just not easily unsettled by the classic definition of horror movie, period. Entertained? Sometimes. Comedy and horror are all in the same category. Sometimes if they are psychological i'm more interested in how things play out than unsettled by them. I very rarely remember the plots.


    I'm unsettled by like,
    requiem for a dream, green mile, umm pulp fiction,
    whatever.
    Not usually horror movies.

    Some of the Shining didn't work for me... (some of Kubrick's approach just seemed whacked, so I lost the feel of the creepy edge)...

    ....but yes, the imagery and the overdubs were awesome, I'm creeped out now just by seeing it here.

    ... but yes, the same feelings: It's unsettling, I really like it, it's just hard to watch.

    Green Mile?
    I liked the book(s) better, the movie did less for me.

    Oooh....Ringu is so much better. The original Japanese version of that and the Grudge are far scarier.

    I actually find many dramas far more disturbing than horror films. Real life is scarier than any slasher flick, IMHO. I watch most horror films as an escapist past-time. But there are a few that actually disturb me.

    I want to see those at some point, just to compare.

    The thought just ran through my head that generally I like to sit back on the sidelines and observe, from a safe place; and if something scares me, my first instinct is to withdraw.

    Both The Ring and The Grudge (and even Nightmare on Elm Street) are movies where the horror follows you. You can't get away, it just relentlessly hunts you down, there's no way to "understand it," and in the end you are lost no matter what.

    Yea, Green Mile affected me a bit.
    I didn't read the book. I imagine its 1000 times better.
    But when you don't taste the good juice then you just don't know

    Mostly my point is that horror movies just don't do anything for me. For the most part. They don't have any effect that they are "supposed" to have.

    As for the Saw movies, shoot me now.

    (haha had to mention that somewhere in this thread.)

    I thought the idea was intriguing (at least for the first one)... but it was sort of a hackney approach to horror. I still can't believe Cary Elwes overacting in the first movie, that sort of crap is exactly what breaks the mood for me and makes it cheesy rather than scary.

    ... Anyway, less about me and more about type.
    Are there any basic generalizations about type -> horror style that we could make?
    Do some movies/styles cut across multiple types/archetypes?

    Hm, well, I like the Shining a lot. That's not quite what I think of when I hear the phrase "horror movie". I guess there's variation in the genre though, and I like the ones that leans towards psychological over gore and violence.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)
