>tfw can't handle horror films
>tfw oftentimes have to pause the movie when it gets too scary for me
>tfw i've actually walked away from a scary movie while it was playing and only came back when
my gfsaid it was "safe"
Must be nice, to actually get scared.
I've got to get the mood going every time by watching alone at night in a dark cold room with headphones.
Can't watch at the cinema with other people because can't resist making snarky comments.
I'm kind of the same now.
I grew up loving all kinds of horror movies, and they were practically the only movies I watched as a kid.
But then in college a really good friend of mine committed suicide by laying on train tracks, and the only way I could deal with the image in my head was spending a week watching the goriest horror movies I could find.
For whatever reason, after I started to feel better and get over it, I can't fucking stand watching any horror movies anymore.
It sucks. There is an entire genre of movies I can't watch. The worst part is I'm super autistic and love analyzing even the shittiest of movies, but I miss everything with a horror flick. My girlfriend is too normie-tier to analyze for me.
Wow anon, that fucking sucks. I'm just scared of horror movies because of childhood pranks.
Start drinking a lot
See a whole bunch of fucked up real life shit on the internet
You won't be able to be frightened by a movie anymore then.
I'm the guy you replied to. 26.
I don't know, I just felt like the internet really fucked me. I used to get really insanely scared by horror flicks when I was a kid, but by now there's not a movie that bothers me.
Only a couple movies ever actually scared me as a kid, the rest seemed fun, almost like riding on a roller coaster... but now I think they bother me because they seem like a mockery and celebration of real pain, which makes them unbearable and obnoxious to me.
I watched a lot of real fucked up shit on the internet too, and for a while I felt detached from it, but none of it compared to having that kind of thing happen to someone you actually care about. That made it fucking real.
I really hate feeling like that though, and hope some day I get the fuck over it/myself.
>love horror movies
>none of them are scary
On the their hand my cousin who is 36 is a giant wuss and always has been and won't watch horror movies
Like when he was 12 he wouldn't watch scooby-do
He'd hide behind the couch
I always give him shit for it
