The horror genre is a prolific one. We've all seen a thousand different movies that claim to be scary. But these days, we'll usually settle for shocking or merely disturbing. Seeing a guy hack off one of his own limbs (or in that case of Saw, wimping out and not showing us) has pathetically become the industry standard.
I was planning on going to the beach this weekend but one look outside has put a damper on my plans. No need to fret because movies have that ability to provide people with vicarious experiences. I can see the world while never having to leave my living room.
