Film makers are making scarier movies and they get more and more terrifying every time one comes out to theaters. They are making them more visual and spend lots of money on outrageous facial pieces to look more real. They try to get in the heads of their target and even the people that like those kind of movies are getting nightmares. For certain people, it’s not just for a little while, it’s for a long time.

Horror movies are getting too extreme, and they don’t know when it is the right time to stop scaring the audience and maybe add in a little bit of comedy. Sort of like a very recent movie called “Game Night”, where a group of people are playing games and the main character Max (played by Jason Bateman) and his “rich brother” Brooks (played by Kyle Chandler) are the hosts. Brooks decides to have a murder mystery game which turns into something else. It was meant to be scary with added comedy.

They decide to spend lots of money on face pieces, costumes, and 3D or animated objects of visuals to make a scene more scarier. 6th grade, Isabella Lira gave me her opinion on a horror movie she had watched. “Well for example, Insidious- ‘The Last Key’, they made it like… really real. They got in my head and really scared me.”. I personally am pretty fond of horror films but I wanted to put a touch on the subject.

Victoria Advocate Blog had mentioned that Psychologists have noticed that it gives little kids a very big adrenaline rush. This is when intense excitement and stimulation is caused by the release of adrenaline from the adrenal glands. Some movies cause nightmares when others cause night-terrors which haunt kids and some adults and can be pretty intense and terrifying. 7th grader Michella Infantozzi also said, “Movies are getting scarier with more plot twists and add more jump scares.”

“Horror films effectively center on the dark side of life, the forbidden, and strange and alarming events” says American Multi-Cinema/ AMC filmsite. I don’t mind watching scary movies but other people have different opinions. For me it depends on the movie and who I’m watching it with. If you are easily frightened and decide you want to watch a horror film, I suggest you watch with an adult so you feel better and this person can comfort you, hence, scary movies aren’t for everyone and therefore you should be careful what you watch.
