God I love my wife!
The rest of the world doesn’t understand us, and those that know us; apprehensively accept our love of gore. I know I’ve had more than a few people look at me sideways wondering if I am all there.
I’m not, and I will be the first to admit it.
Who in their right mind cheers for good kills in the movie theatre while most of the audience is grossed out or cringing? Who can eat a bowl of past while watching Zombies munch away on human organs and who has the (secret and not so secret) desire to become one of the undead immortal beings known as Vampires?
Horror lovers that’s who.
There is a never ending stream of Horror movies and books coming out these days to feed our hunger, our need. Some days it is hard to keep up on all of the new stuff. Trust me it wasn’t always like that, pickings were pretty slim, especially if you lived in rural areas. Today with cable, the internet, and plenty of producers willing to put out horror movies, it's a little more mainstream than the old days.
If you think horror lovers are thought to be nuts now, well we were treated like freaks 30 or so years ago. My own late Grandmother thought there had to be something wrong with me and my "unhealthy interest in Horror". Of course she thought I was strange for liking Ozzy as well, even though it was my uncle (her son) who got me into Sabbath.
So here’s to all of us psychos who love and live horror every day, we get to enjoy Halloween over and over again. I raise my glass to all my fellow Horror lovers.
