How to get over my fear of horror movies?

How to get over my fear of horror movies? Topic: Movie case stand
May 26, 2019 / By Jancis
Question: I have a pretty bad fear of scary movies/horror films, and no matter what I do, I can't seem to shake it. Normally, I wouldn't care about superficial things like being able to watch horror films and not be scared, but lately it's been affecting my social life. It's causing me to not be able to go out to movies with my friends as much, I turn into a total wall-flower at slumber partys, and I can't even stand to switch on the television in October. It's not a normal case of horror film phobia, unlike all my friends who are just scared during the movie, or maybe through to the next day and get over it by the next night, I am freaked out for a week or two. The first few nights are sleepless, the next few are all nightmares, but the nightmares die down and then all i see everywhere is the face of some demon or monster or murderer or something. I can't stand always being afraid of being afraid! It's causing me to miss out on some of the fun in life now! Somebody, please tell me how to get rid of my phobia? October's in a few months, and I really want to be able to go to halloween partys, movie theaters, and - heck, just be able to turn on my television without being scared for weeks and mentally scarred for months.

A great way to get over your fear is to search out a horror movie in production. Try to help out on a movie being made and see what it is all about. Nowadays, tons of people are making independent horror movies. I was recently a zombie in a B-movie and it was a blast. If you try to understand why certain lighting is used or when puppets are used instead of a real person, it might help you watch the movies in a totally different way. Just knowing how the process is done will help you so much! Best of luck!

However, even trimmed, this one is good!

while cgi and special effects have really influenced the quality and believablity in horror movies, I still think that scary movies, truly scary movies simply arent made anymore. Last movie I thougt was even remotely scary was cloverfield, and it wasnt even a 3 on my scale of scarriness

Orphan was the scariest, most shocking, most sick, and most twisted movie i have ever seen, it is worth watching I also recommend: Murderer-A Chinese Horror Movie not very well known in the United States and is a lot like "Orphan" American Psycho-Very good movie The Uninvited R Point-Korean Horror Movie A Tale of Two Sisters Silent Hill-Good Movie All of these movies listed above got a shocking and sometimes scary twist at the end
