Horror’s Hopes of Revival
One of the film industry’s worst trends has nothing to do with CGI, pointy-tooth heartthrobs, nor anything actually happening in the movies themselves.
Believe or not, it is the audience that is continually ruining the cinematic experience for themselves. This bizarre, self-annihilating mentality is driving a generation of paying patrons towards a distressing inability to achieve one of film’s most basic rules -a suspension of disbelief. This is most certainly true for many genres of movies, but since its former ghoulish glory, the horror genre has long been victim to smart remarks and baffled audiences.
