I’ve watched horror movies since I was 6.
The first one was a movie called “The Boogens” its a horrible movie, but it was my introduction to real horror.
Then came the original Halloween and Children of the Corn.
Everything that came after scared me and made me enjoy horror. Hellraiser will always be at the top of my list not because it’s scary but it’s just cool.
Now the horrible part. Nothing I read or watch truly scares me anymore.
I watched the recent Annabelle movie the other day, eh. It was okay. The second was good. It goes this way with a lot of movies for me, books too.
I have a difficult time finding books that scare me. I’m currently reading Wanderers by Chuck Wending, it doesn’t scare me it’s just so on the nose for our society that it’s unsettling.
It’s been a while since I read or watched something that truly scares me. And that’s why as a horror and fantasy writer I’m having a trouble writing something.
Yes I’m writing, but it’s not as scary as I want it to be. I believe this is because I’m having a hard time being scared anymore.
My wife and I talked about it and she said the same thing, “Nothing really scares you.”
Now I don’t know if this is a phase, I hope so, but I’d like find a movie or book that would scare me. I have Rosemary’s Baby up next on my tbr.
I’m hoping that one does it. If all else fails go with a classic.
Any suggestions would be wonderful.
Happy Friday and have a great weekend.
