I’m not quite sure when it started, but at some point I began to really dislike horror movies. I’m not sure if it’s because they’re too graphic for me or if I just don’t like being scared, but either way, I find myself avoiding them at all costs. And it’s not just the newer, more modern horror movies either – I even dislike the classics like “The Exorcist” and “The Shining.” Maybe it’s because I’m a wimp, but I just can’t handle horror movies.

I hate horror movies because they are often clichéd and predictable. The scares are often cheap and the acting is often bad. The plots are often silly and the endings are often unsatisfying. I just don’t find them enjoyable.
2. They often rely on cheap scares instead of building suspense.
I hate horror movies because they often rely on cheap scares instead of building suspense. For example, a typical horror movie will have a scene where a character is alone in a dark room and suddenly a monster pops out and scares the character. This is a cheap scare because it does not require the movie to build any suspense beforehand. It is just a sudden, unexpected event that is meant to startle the viewer. Cheap scares like this are not scary, they are just annoying.

I hate horror movies because they are often poorly made, with poor acting and shoddy production values. They rely on cheap scares and gross-out tactics to try and elicit a reaction from the viewer, and more often than not they just leave me feeling angry and frustrated. I also hate how these movies always seem to center around a group of clueless teenagers who make all the wrong decisions, which just adds to my feeling of frustration. And finally, I find that horror movies tend to be very formulaic and predictable, which takes away any sense of suspense or tension.
6. They are often not particularly scary.
I hate horror movies because they are often not particularly scary. I find myself getting bored during the majority of the movie, only to be startled by a random jump scare. I would much rather watch a suspenseful thriller that keeps me engaged throughout.
