Englund as Freddy Krueger (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Once I saw the Stephen King movies, which are based on his novels they were frightening at the time. I have read The Stand and it left me at a complete scare. The movies from before like in the 80 s and 90 s aren't scary anymore compared to today's. At this point he is still writing horror novels, and his novels are much scarier. If you see today's horror movies you won't even try to come back home. It is that scary the horror movies of today. The movie The Possession will freak you to death. Rosemary's Baby was psychologically scare. The Exorcist frightened most movie-goers. We want a good scare and this is the reason we see them and read them. Those creatures from movies and novels are real freaky. Some people feel monsters like Michael Myers feel real. The Omen once it came in theaters at the time brought most fans off their seats as if their lives were in danger. The special effects from these movies look real, but can give you nightmares. I remember Freddy Krueger gave me nightmares when I was a teen. I still love horror movies and novels. There are always dark sides from these creatures. Jason Voorhees had dark sides from his mother in Friday The 13th movie series. Norman Bates from The Psycho series still thought his mother is alive, and to us it is still creepy. Once you see the TV show Bates Motel you get to see the beginnings of Norman Bates and his mother in action. Jigsaw was real frightening in The Saw movie series. Most of us love good scares. We can't help it. We just love it. Back then Clive Barker has written so many horror novels and were also real creepy to read. In this future Stephen King's sons are now supernatural horror novelists. I have heard their novels are scary as their father's novels are. This is the reason we love to watch movies and read horror novels. Most of us love all the gore and suspense from it.
