I love horror movies. Most of the time, people who love horror movies, really love horror movies. So, when I'm picking out a movie, my sites are for the gore. For a disturbing story that will have me cringing from the torture scenes all the way until the hot girl gets away (or figures out how to kill the villain).
Horror is a great genre. It's so predictable, but you just have to keep watching. While it's easy to stereotype and give it a bad rap, there are some really good horror movies. Some may disagree, but us horror fans know it. Just look at movies like The Exorcist, Rosemary's Baby, Halloween and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Everyone knows about these movies and loves to get scared by them.
