Scary movies no longer enjoyable for me
When I was in my early 20s, I would enjoy a good scare. Never been into gore, but I liked things that were genuinely scary (Poltergeist, The Shining, etc.).

But now, age 40, I find these movies "stressful" and "disturbing" and not fun. What is wrong with me?

I never liked those movies. And now reality is becoming sufficiently scary to many so we no longer need horror movies for that big scare. You just need Obama, Hillary, Gates, Fauci, and the WEF.

Do you have kids?

I was a fan of horror and gore films since 15 up to until about I had offspring.

I remember watching "The Boy who Wears Pajamas" for the first time when my kids young and sleeping.

I was traumatized for a day and I kept holding my kids.

My tolerance for intense fear is no longer tolerable.

For me, the reason has been because I scare myself to death already being a mother and I no longer need movies to give me that jolt of fear.

Re: Scary movies no longer enjoyable for me
Yeah for me too.. Around 38ish things begin to change..

You start thinking about.. Life as it should be...

Especially if you have children, then you really start to change the mind over...

Means, I think your mentally growing up... And your mind is seeing the beauty in it.. Whatever there is...

But yea it's natural for normal thinking people...

People that are in the dark side, go deeper into horror show which is life...

It's why the military gets them at 18..18 year Olds are dumb enough to think they can live through anything...

Try to recruit 50 year Olds n up.. No way... They figured out they want to live...

It's natural for the normal people...
Romans 14:11 It is written:
“‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord,
‘every knee will bow before me;
every tongue will acknowledge God.

Revelation 20:15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

Most horror films are not scary at all. Most are gory or just not scary. But I used to enjoy watching films like the Shining (the old one in the 1980). Scary films used to serve as like an amusement park ride for me. But now at age 40, I just don't find them fun. They just make me feel more uncomfortable for some reason.

Re: Scary movies no longer enjoyable for me
Liking scary movies should end long before you turn 30.

Yeah, it's about growing up and staying away from 'garbage for the mind.'

Of course, some people never grow up. I know some that can't be alone after dark and need to sleep with the lights on. Some also see "ghosts" and I hear them talk about it. Yeah, I believe them.

I highly suspect they opened themseleves up to it by watching horror movies.

We're taking a daily dose of horror and drama on here.

And we're seeing some pretty horrible stuff lately.

It's hard to believe the world is going mad.

The inhumanity coming from people. Seriously.

Re: Scary movies no longer enjoyable for me
Actually I still enjoy a good one. But they are extremely rare, 99% rely on shitty jump scares or gory effects because they are shitty cheap Cali or Canadian budget shoots out of a van. God awful acting, massive plot holes. Hokey Hammer films are still a favorite.

Good point! There will likely be a horror movie in 20 years that is about this period in time.

I'm not much into them anymore either. Never was my favorite genre though. Rarely watch any movies at all nowadays.

The world's just messed up enough, you don't need it added to entertainment.

I used to watch horror movies all the time as a kid up until my early 20’s. When you get older and have had a lot more life experience, known people who have gotten seriously hurt or died, been hurt bad yourself you start to become more empathetic with the victims unless your a complete psychopath. It’s not so fun anymore watching that shit after you’ve lived through some shit yourself, same reason as you get older you prefer more peace and quiet and try to avoid drama and stressful situations as much as possible. It’s completely normal man, don’t worry about it.

I hate the cliched 'hillbilly inbred cannibals' gore movies.
So gross, boring and predictable. The pretty girl always kills the last one. The boyfriend gets dissected alive.
Not scary.

Just gross.

I suppose ENJOYING watching people being murdered in horrible ways was NEVER really a normal or moral response. We were trained to think that was fun.

This. You're undergoing a spiritual awakening, OP, and you're becoming more sensitive to human suffering. Even if it's only in a movie and not real, it bothers you to see humans suffer. That's a very positive sign.
