I have qualifiers like other posters have mentioned.

I like good psychological "scary" movies" like The Shining (prefer King's movie version), and other ghost stories that have an actual plot and are not made just for the scare factor. Do not like any of the Halloween series or similar films which are just a bunch of cheap, sudden scare scenes strung together with barely a plot.

If I want to watch a "scary movie," I'll watch PBS's "Frontline". no_hypocrisy Oct 2022 #1
