Of coarse there are people who like horror films.I think these people like these films because they control their full attention through  all the length of the film.
I like comedy and drama genera not only because they entertain me but also,since they are close to the real life,they show me the different aspects of life.
About the listening activity, I think the speaker is a kind of fearless and  cruel.I said this because I heard her saying  horror films are not scary at all and the interesting  scenes in horror films she liked is those in which people die in a horrible way.

i don't think that the author is cruel.Afterall it is her choice and i also like these scenes.If you don't like these films,just don't watch it and let the interested people to see it.Everyone has his all choices...not everyone can think like you

Hello Mohalgn, well I think I'm not a cruel person, but It's true I also like the scenes with people dying. They are scary and I shout all the time. 

Hi everybody, I like horror film, my favourite film are the exorcist, the exorcist of Emily rose, the grudge and there is a Italian director called Dario Argento, who made Profondo rosso, Suspiria and Phenomena that are a good film ( I don't know if this film are seen abroad).However, I think that people like horror movie, because there is a need of strong emotion like fright,love and other feeling. when the people go to amusement park  to look for strong emotion as for horror film.  Instead, for the film "the mist", I think that the interesting part of the film is : the failure of the faith (religion), indeed the religious woman try to kill all person that don't believe in her idea and  in the failure of the atheism, indeed the last survivor kill themselves (except one), only to discover that the evil is to be defeated. It's strange, but true the truth stay in the middle ( I don't know if you'll understand)

I think this is very cool :P :D I am Turkish and 14 years old. So some times I don't understand :) But I understand now. (:

To my mind, people are keen on watching horror moves because they like thrilling  with horror. As for me, I prefer comedies or action to horror as it's very merry. Besides, you have opportunity to relax watching different comedies.
It seems to me, psychological thrillers make us to think, to discuss, to draw conclusion. But horror films have only sinister zombie and so on.

I'm so scary of zombies, ghost and monster. . . But now i will try to watch horror films. . . I realllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyy likkkkkeeee this site.... :d

I don't like these movies... but a lot people like becouse is funny for them.  people like to feel  fear and cry. is it stupid? or is it funny? Make your own conclusions.
I like drama, it´s the best!!

This activity is excellent.  Thank you very much for it.

Hi dear all! This lesson is good. But I don't like horror movies too much. I watch them occasionally. I would like to say, it's not a good idea to watch horror movies more and more. Because it also can effected of your feelings to be uncomfortable.
