I love horror films, but I don´t know why.
My favourite film genre are love films, horror films and thriller films, I love the thiller.
Yes, I have watched Alfred Hitchcock’s films, of course.I think that, there are a lot of diference between horror films and thriller films.
I think always is nice to hear you.

hello everyone
I use to like horror films but by time ,I realized that there's no add in these kind of films ,always the same stories manipulating the same fairs and treating the same subjects which by the way became so boring "in my opinion of course".But if I have to choose among this horror film types ,I prefer zombie films because they're more funny than scary.
After all I prefer documentaries.

i also like gory films...i think the best one is 'final destination 3'.I've watched it for more than 7 times and i know what will happen each minute...I also like insidious which is very tense and interesting...these two films are very good.They must be watched by horror film 'amateur'

I am also keen on horror films, they make me feel adrenalin and wake me up from daily routine

I am trying to bring Justice for women in my country (Afghanistan)

I m not scared of horror films at all,that s why I don really like them;but I must admit there are quite some good films,like psychological one.I prefer comedy and drama,because death and blood are not so wonderful to see in real life.I think some people like this genre because it s something unsual to see in our enviroment (for example  going out,getting home...)unless you are doctor or something like that and produces a kind of excitement.It seems to be like reading poetry,seeing a picture,etc.I don t like these movies,but I have to respect it.
