Are today’s horror movies really that scary?
(“Alfred Hitchcock Presents” intro music plays as a minimal line silhouette of James Faraci The Last Of The Americans from the side and the words in Army Text “The Last Of The Americans” and the word “Editorial” appear under for two seconds then disappear as James’ shadow walks up to the silhouette as the intro ends camera zooms over to James Faraci, The Last Of The Americans)
TLOTA(Doing an impersonation of Alfred Hitchcock): Good evening, I am James Faraci, The Last Of The Americans and the views I am about to express are that from my own opinions and some from your opinions (Snickers and then laughs breaking character)
TLOTA(Normal): Okay, I’m not going to do that for awhile, but you guys know what time it is. (John Carpenter’s theme from “Halloween” plays.) It’s the time for kids to dress up like their favorite characters and ask their neighbors for candy, it’s time for us adults to go dress up a like a little more mature version of the characters with some anatomically correct pieces & some which are bit more politically incorrect than others and also we get our glut of movies that are meant to scare the ever living daylights out of people with monsters, serial killers, the un-dead, aliens and all sort of creatures that make everybody soil their underwear. But with so many terrors in the real world the question that persists in my head “Are today’s horror movies really that scary?”
