Now I don’t particularly like the horror genre because I just don’t find it interesting. They’re just full of jump scares anyway. But I don’t have any problem to those who like it. However, some of the fan piss me off.
I notice that some of them look down on people who don’t watch horror genre assuming that we are too scared to watch any. What in the world are they thinking? Well I admit most of us, including me, are ‘weak’ and can get scared easily. However, that’s not the main reason why we don’t watch the genre. The main reason is that we just don’t find the genre interesting. I mean I’ve tried watching some, even to the extend of watching them at the cinema (because we are told that it’s the best experience) but after watching, I don’t really feel anything. Maybe, just maybe I was just watching a bad horror film so it was not enough to scare me to death. That’s what I thought. But all my friends seem to scared even more than me. I guess I’m not easily scared?? Naahhh I’m pretty sure I’m the opposite.
What’s worse is that some people especially my peers tend to watch the genre to show off that they are ‘brave’. The irony is that after watching a horror movie, I’m still able to go to the toilet alone in the middle of the night while they can’t. Like… whaaat? I’m not saying that I’m ‘brave’ but I think it’s pretty safe to say that I’m ‘braver’ than them.
What I’m trying to say is that I hate people who look down on me just because I don’t like to watch horror films. However, I’m too lazy to explain everything to them so when the question, “why don’t you watch the horror genre?” came to me, I’d just answer “ because I’m a scaredy-cat” bluntly. End of story.
