I’ve never been a huge fan of horror. Of course there are some exceptions ~ I love Stephen King’s writing, of course. I liked a few books by Dean Koontz. After that, the list sputters to a halt. As far as films, I generally pass. The only one I truly enjoyed was The Shining, based upon King’s book. Other King novels have been made into movies, but… meh. His writing focuses quite a bit on the characters’ thoughts and feelings, bringing the reader’s sense of unease to a slow boil, but horror movies are more about making you gasp in fright from the shock value of gore and/or surprise. The music keeps you edgy for something to jump out… and I find that stressful and ultimately annoying. I watch a movie to relax, not to get an adrenalin rush.
