I don’t know about you all but I’m one of those guys that can happily watch a horror movie several times if I enjoy it. I come to feel like I know the characters, I see little things throughout that I hadn’t noticed before, I enjoy the clever tricks that the filmmaker employs to create a certain ambiance or atmosphere. All of these, and more, are things that I relish about watching a horror movie more than once.
One of my favorite times to do this is when I’m sick with a cold or something similar. I’m already fairly miserable (I’m a serious baby when I get sick) so I really try to do something that brings me joy and comfort, which is watching a horror movie (or five). And that got me thinking, “What are some of my comfort horror movies? What are the ones I fall back on when I’m not feeling well because it brings a smile to my face and I just enjoy the crap out of it?”
So I wanted to share a few of these movies with you and a brief explanation about what it is that makes these movies just so relaxing for me. Join me below!
Big Trouble In Little China
Seriously, I love this movie. It’s probably one of my all time favorites. It’s got everything I could want out of a movie: action, horror, fantasy, supernatural, martial arts, comedy, over-the-top acting, and some of the best one-liners in movie history. It truly baffles my mind when I meet someone who doesn’t like this movie. I just can’t get it. It doesn’t make sense to me.
