The hunt is on…..
The problem is, is that the hunt for the elusive Horror never stops.
If you’re wondering what I’m talking about then let me try and explain. Do you ever get that thought as you sit down to watch a new Horror film “Is this going to be the one? Is this going to be the film that blows my mind away, surpasses all my expectations and become my new favourite?”
I’ve always said it’s like being an addict, you’re always searching for that next high, looking for that next hit. But you’re ultimately chasing the dragon, chasing the rush of that first high. Ultimately you’re searching for the elusive Horror film, over and over and over again.
I apologise for the confusing analogy but I think you can maybe get the gist of what I’m trying to say, hopefully. Every conversation I have with Horror fans it makes me laugh because you know you’re waiting for the question, I’m sure you know which one I’m talking about.
“So, have you watched anything good lately?”, you know you’ve asked it, you know it’s been asked by you. We all do it, we want those recommendations in case there’s a film we’ve missed out on, some obscure feature that may have passed us by and we need to know about it.
I know I can’t be the only Horror fan out there that has a ‘To Watch’ list, a list that seems to be never ending with films being constantly added to it all the time. For me it’s just part and parcel of my fandom really, I’ve done it for years and see no end in sight. I watch one film and add seven.
We all keep searching for that elusive Horror film, that one film we’ve missed out on somehow, the film that will top every other Horror film that we’ve ever watched. We have to remember though, it’s called the elusive Horror film for a reason. that doesn’t stop us from chasing it though.
So let me ask you, have you watched anything good lately?
