I'd thought I'd start this blog off on a high note. If you have read my previous posts, you've found out that I'm a girl with a large span of interests. But, while this is true, there is one thing that will always hold a special place in my heart. One thing and one thing alone, horror.
I know what you may be thinking. Teenage girl + Horror movies = WTF? Ok, so (since I'm such a great mind reader) I know what you may be thinking again. Teenage girls just LOVE horror movies, right?! I mean, come on. Things that make you jump out of your seat and have that fake artificial blood stuff are just amazing, amiright?! No. I tend to look at it from a different perspective. How? Well...let's see.
To start off, we need to answer a very important question, "What exactly is horror?" There are a few different definitions that I can give you:
1. an overwhelming and painful feeling cause by something frightfully shocking, terrifying, or revolting
2. anything that causes such a feeling
3. a strong aversion; abhorrence
Any of the these will do. They are all very much accurate if I do say so myself. Now that we know the meaning behind horror, lets talk about what it really means to me.
Okay, so I really don't feel like going into my whole life story right now (that will come later, when I feel appropriate and when it's not 12:30 at night) but I will say this much. Horror is such an important thing to me for many reasons. It has always been something that has made an impact on my life. Throughout my hardships (which again, I will explain in a later post) it has always been something that I could rely on to help me with whatever it was that I was going through.
Horror is used throughout a wide span of creative outlets. It is used through film, books, television, theatre, and even in real life. It seems that people such as myself just can't get enough of the screaming!
So I guess that's it for today. If anyone who reads this blog has any ideas of what my next few posts should be about, let me know!
*Sorry this post came so late. A lot of stuff has happened that I will explain later.
