Nightmare on Elm Street? No way!

I have to say it is one of the perks of working in the media that I get invited to a lot of movie preview screenings. I am a movie buff through and through and I love getting to see films before I hear too many things about them in the media and either already know what to expect or have unrealistic expectations.

That said, when I received the invitation for this film this week, my first thought was unequivocally that there was no way I was going to see this film. I would rather run down St Georges Terrace in my pyjamas than go to see this movie. I am just not good at scary movies and I will never understand the appeal of paying good money to scare myself witless. A Nightmare on Elm Street? There will certainly be nightmares on my street if I saw this one.

What about everyone else. What kind of movies do you love or hate?

  1. I agree with you 100%. I would much rather something that leaves me feeling happy, than scared to walk down the street at night, even if it isn't reality based!
