Not everyone loves to watch horror movies. The scary factor, themes and scenes of scary movies are not applicable and attractive to all, but there are some ways for them to like it. Watching horror movies is like playing in an online casino or it’s sister site, not everyone may like it but once you know how to play it right, you can start loving it.
Prepare yourself mentally
One of the things you need to do when planning to watch a horror movie is preparing yourself mentally. There are many movie synopsis you can read online. Reading and knowing the highlights of the movie will lessen the threatening impact of the scene when it is already showing. But, if you do not want to spoil all the excitement, it is best if you read just a few parts of the write up.
Also, you have to keep in mind that the movie you are about to watch is only fictional. It is not real and it is made only to entertain moviegoers. Do not associate movies to real life as it is absolutely not real, unless it is based on real life.
If you think that you have done everything to prepare yourself yet you are still afraid, better speak with your family and friends about it or not pursue watching the movie again.
Choose the right environment
Choosing the right environment is also necessary when watching horror movies. Watching the movie during the day is better than doing it at night. When you watch it at night, you are just inviting the possibility of repeating the scariest scene in your mind again and again, until it becomes a part of your dream.
Also, if you have squeezable items to hold in your hand or a pillow to hug, it is best if you bring it with you while watching. It will surely lessen the fear factor and give you comfort on rough and scary moments.
If you can schedule the movie watching with your friends, better. Your friends or family members can surely give scary moments a little relief. Knowing that you are watching with your family and friends can set the fear aside even for a bit. And because you are watching with the crowd, the fear may change to humor and laughter.
You can also turn your movie watching into a picnic activity. Prepare some snacks to munch and a nice and comfortable place to sit. If this you do, you can somehow deviate your attention to something else when the scariest character of the movie or the scariest part of the film is playing. Having good food in your hand while watching a horror movie can surely give you not only entertainment but satisfaction too.
Although watching horror movies is fun and exciting to some, some people feel the other way. Watching movies with this kind of theme or genre is nice provided that you know how to make the experience extra relaxing, special and fun.
