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.

Hi everybody
I think watching horror film is really interesting, 'cause we absolutly need someting frightening to amuse ourself. Indeed, I'm Indonesian we have a lots of unique ghost like Pocong, Kuntilanak, Tuyul and so on. And they are absolutly scrary.
Let you see them !

I don't like horror films, because when I watched Zombie film then all time in my mind these stories was ran...and sometime I felt that in my room there was zombie....uuuhh..So after that I ignore these types of movies

My roommates like watching horror film so much. I think they love horror film because it make them feel fear and anxiety or something else like tension. And sometimes they scream very loud and then laugh a lot as if they are watching comedy film. That feelings help them relieve stress. However, i don't like horror film so much. Because it haunts me after watching. Therefore, i really love romantic, comedy or action film...
