    Impressed that you refer to The Thing as "Carpenter" instead of "original." Most people think that one was the original.

    Nothing impressive there...I'm almost as old as the original with James Arness! ;)

    My worst nightmare plays out in a scene of Brokeback Mountain and Deliverance.

    I just watched Cabin in the Woods. While I wouldn't call it a horror movie (although it's classified as that) and it didn't scare me whatsoever, I still rather enjoyed it. It was a good shot at the horror movie fans who get so angry if a horror movie doesn't end exactly how they expect it to. Loved the message of the movie.

    I just think a lot of it has to do with growing up. I enjoyed Insidious and the Conjuring but once they are over I am over it. Stuff that scared me when I was much younger isn't going to do it anymore.

    One of the things that gets me is so many people feel the need for some comic relief in a horror movie to break the tension. I am just the opposite, I want tension to build and build until you get one little sound or movement and you jump like a little sissy.

    Same here. I'd prefer overwhelming dread throughout an entire movie as opposed to false calm from comic relief.
