Actually i dont like horror films at all, i dont like to be scared or frightened, i dont like agressive or gory scenes. if by accident i watched a short scene of an horror movie, i still frightened for many days.
My favourite sort of films is Drama, because its as real as life, i can soend long time watching darama series.
I like the audio script today, i have learnt lots if new words like, gory, sinister, guts, mist, dawn, horicane, typhoon, i like to share with you my new words list.
Thanks alot

if you right but why teasing the horror film

this is the best listening practice ever

I am fan of Alfred Hitchcock’s films, definitely my favorite is Psycho.
I recommed to watching these movies of this remarkable director; The 39 Steps, Vertigo, The Birds, Young and Innocent, Rope, and Frenzy,

i like horror movies and i enjoy especially Zombies and ghost with black magic

i really do hate horror films , they are awful... -_-

I think that are people how likes the feeling of been scared but with the option, they can any moment stop and turn off the movie. And escape in dreams. I like to watch horrors movies because I like that felling and in same moments I fell scared and happy because I'm alive. Also I like comedy movies because i really enjoy having laugh of the different funny situations that happened there. It is good way to spend your time with friends and family, and forgetting the problems.

I have not seen a Alfred Hitchcock's film . But for me is huge differences between horror and thrillers movie. For me the horror movies is for a high-school children and a thrillers are made for adults only.

I enjoy some horror fims but none thta have blood! I prefer films that have to do with spirits .
Thanks for sharing the audio, I will use it with my students.
