Life has so much to offer, and there are so many things in life that make one thrilled and excited. Such feelings of being keyed up are solely personal, and the activities or jobs that become a source of excitement and thrill vary form one person to another. If I am to answer the question of what makes me thrilled or excited, I would right away answer that watching horror movies at night all by myself is possibly the best activity that engrosses me into a world of excitement and thrill. The enlivening thrill of watching a scary movie alone can never be compared to any other emotion.
As the women on-screen clad in night gown slowly walks down the hallway, engulfed in semidarkness, my heart begins to race. One never knows when a crazy masked murderer would emerge from the darkness and scare the audience to death. The anticipation is what draws me towards watching such movies whenever there is a possibility to do so. I simply cannot get enough of this habit as I wait in anxiety for the next slasher flick to come up on television. I might know that the consecutive events that are unfolding are purely fictitious. However, the signals that my brain sends to the body is enough to simulate physical reactions that comes as a response to the thrill. The eye movements are rapid and the heart rate increases, and when a sudden fright is encountered, the physical response is rapidly intensified. I would consider myself to have higher sensation-seeking personality attributes.
The style of the respective genre might have evolved over the years. However, the elements are to remain the same. A gradual buildup to an action scene that is highly grisly might be too terrifying to watch. I am not able to look away. Though some people might opine that scary movies are to be best watched at the movie theatre, I admit that such movies are to be best enjoyed in the comfort of own space without any distraction. The essence of thill is maximum in such environment. Most of the films masterfully exploit the anxieties I develop, and it is appealing to me when a brutal hand moves across the screen or when a character suddenly moves his head round-about. The movies are meticulous and savage in their crafting and satisfying my quest for the thrill.
Some of the horror movies that have grabbed my eyeballs are The Fog, Fright Night, The Guest, Saw, Conjuring and Grindhouse to name a few. The list is non-exhaustive and never-ending, and I would mention that the I even do not remember the names of all the movies that I have watched over the last few years. While some have been watched countless times, others are worth only to be watched once. The ones that I have watched more than once are classics in their own respect and decidedly mature films that imbibe the concept that the scary things of all are the invisible presence prowling in the dark.
