Do you see horror movies as a waste of time? Is it difficult for you to see the entertainment value of a good disemboweling or the odd decapitation? You are not alone. Whether you think torture-porn like Hostel or The Human Centipede take things too seriously, or you're offended by the lack of horror movies set in space, there is a scary movie out there for you. Don't let another frightless Halloween pass you by, and come with us to explore some horror movies for people who hate horror movies.
Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil - This Canadian comedy-horror takes your stereotypical, 'hillbillies slaughter college kids camping in the woods' motif and flips it on its ear. Tucker and Dale are two not-so-stereotypical rednecks on holiday. A holiday marred by a string of misunderstandings and miss-communication with a group of suburbanite kids that leads to a series of gruesome yet hilarious deaths of said kids at the hands of... themselves. Recommended if you hate horror movies because the victims are too stupid to run or fight back.
Event Horizon - The crew of the space ship Lewis & Clark are sent on a rescue mission to investigate an SOS from the Event Horizon, a ship that was lost seven years previously on its maiden voyage, while testing a new gravity drive. The gravity drive was designed to create a wormhole from one point in space to another. It would seem the drive worked, so the question is where did the ship go while in between those two points, and what did it bring back with it? Recommended if you hate horror movies because there aren't enough phasers set to 'kill'.
