Do you love to be scared during Halloween?  Isn't it great to watch a horror film that freaks you out and forces you to put on a light night before going to bed?  Sure, for the non-horror fan this sounds absurd, but there is a special kind of thrill being legitimately scared by a movie. 

If this is what you like, then you probably want to pass on the current crop of horror films at the cinema.  I discuss the decline of modern horror films in my latest Collective Publishing Pop Culture article.
