5 Horror Movies for Non-Horror Fans
Sometimes loving horror isn’t easy. While we personally love having the crap scared out of us, or watching a bunch of teens being brutally devoured, for others it’s a living nightmare. We all have that one person in our lives who flatly refuses to watch anything that remotely resembles a horror, either out of a lack of appreciation for the genre, or simple because the idea of deliberately terrifying ourselves for pleasure is moronic, or legitimately terrifying. If you’re lucky it’s someone you don’t care for, a friend of a friend you see occasionally and begrudgingly. Other times it is your significant other or best friend. If the latter is the case you are in deep trouble. When it comes to spending quality time with good friends the last thing you want to do is waste it arguing over what to watch.
