One in four college students in a recent study said they experience lingering effects of a frightful movie or TV experience from childhood. (Bernie DeGroat) Fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief the someone or something is dangerous causing pain, or threats. It is not appropriate for middle schoolers to read classic horror stories like “The Tell-Tale Heart”, because they can cause them anxiety and it can make them aggressive after watching scary movies.

My favorite movie was the monkey king, where I watched it from days to days by replaying the movie. I think that I just felt in love with the plot and the characters in the movie.
Growing up with a father in the military, you move around a lot more than you would like to. I was born just east of St. Louis in a city called Shiloh in Illinois. When I was two years old my dad got the assignment to move to Hawaii. We spent seven great years in Hawaii, we had one of the greatest churches I have ever been to name New Hope. New Hope was a lot like Olivet's atmosphere, the people were always friendly and there always something to keep someone busy. I used to dance at church, I did hip-hop and interpretive dance, but you could never tell that from the way I look now.
I love movies. For as long as I can remember, I’ve harvested a passionate, slightly embarrassing obsession with film. The way in which cinema can paint such vivid and beautiful moving images, portray moving stories containing a wide range of emotion and narrative threads, leaving a long-term impact on the viewer, all within a runtime of two hours or so, captured my fascination at an early age. This fascination continues to this day. While I cannot state for certain the first film I ever watched (My parents seem to think it was either Disney’s animated princess flick Mulan or The Phantom Menace, the first film in the Star Wars prequel trilogy), I can most definitely remember the first film that left a lasting impression on my youthful mind, in addition to inspiring me until this day.
One time when I went to the theater, I saw the conjuring. It was fun at the same time.When I am watching a scary movie I feel scared. People like scary movies because they like to feel the adrenalin. During the 19th century, in venezuela folklore, there is a belief of El Silbon person who kill his father.
Growing up my favorite movie of all time was the Wizard of Oz, and to this day I could watch it over and over again. I enjoy watching fantasies on our list such as beauty and the beast, supernatural, and the hulk. To me these movies and shows are a way to make myself, and others feel as though the characters can relate to all of our lives somehow. They make us feel as though we are not alone. And someone else is dealing with the same situation which makes me connect with them. Even if it is just for an hour or two it’s enough time to escape from my own word, and get lost in theirs. Whether it’s falling in love, hunting demons, ghosts, and monsters, or even being a giant green super hero .If you look deeper you’ll find a message behind each
I grew up in a household where watching scary movies was necessary. This is due to the fact that my mom spent 15 years managing movie theaters and is a huge movie buff. She raised me to also love movies. Her favorite movie genre is horror, and I was introduced to these types of films very early
For some reason, I was never all that afflicted by the terrors of the cinema. While appealing,
The first movie to put some fear into me might have help from the surroundings while watching it, the 1999 remake of the 1963 film The Haunting. At the time of when I watched the film my family and I were house sitting for a friend of my father. There I was, sitting in front of stranger’s television, in a stranger’s house watching a scary movie well into the night, the perfect setup for a good scare. The idea of objects being having the ability to be manipulated upon by an ethereal
At a young age I became obsessed with horror movies. Although, I could look past
Horror stories have multiple effects on everyone. Some people loved to be scared to have the fight-or-flight response. Others don’t like to be scared because sometimes it can sometimes permanently make you scared of something and you’ll never be able to do it again. Horror movies and stories do have to throw in some twists and turns that are scary just to keep the audience interested so they will keep watching the movie or reading the story.
It never stops there, humans are a creature of habit and we tend to enjoy films that remind us of events or people close to us. This is why films based off true events seem to always have the biggest numbers behind them. I personally love viewing films about some historical significance that I was not able to experience in real life. It’s something about a true story that gives me the chills when a director is recreating something with immense significance.
Watching movies is probably one of my favorite activities, it does not matter if the movie good or bad; I just want to watch them. I loved going to the theaters as a kid because the entire experience was always so exciting, especially since it was the first thing my mother let me do out on my own. Going to the movies had always been a blessing but as I have grown I have made an effort to go less often. While the experience is still the same I just notice just how bad the overall experience can be as well.
Why is it that some people enjoy a scary movie and others think that they are too scary or gruesome? Horror movies have been around since the 1960s. Some of those movies actually come from a story that was made up to scare little kids. People would make up a scary story and the parent’s would tell their children the stories to keep them from doing something they didn’t want them to do, but not all of the stories are made up. Some of these stories actually are based off of a true story or something that happened in real life and the characters were changed so that they wouldn’t reveal identities of the people involved.
