Other than taking surveys, I like to read, write and draw, watch movies, listen to music, build model kits, swim, hike, hang out with family and friends, have a cold beer.
Sure, life can be rough at times, but I wouldn't call horror crap. Frankenstein and Dracula are both based on classic novels and hardly what I'd call crap, for example. Horror can help people deal with the crap in the world, put it into context and handle it or simply act as a warning. End babble.

Some films do manage to combine horror and comedy, but still might not be your thing. I'd suggest Cabin in the Woods, American Werewolf in London, Army of Darkness.

Psycho actually is a series. There were four film follow-ups, the first two staring Anthony Perkins again, an unneeded re-make of the original, and a TV series called Bates Motel. That said, I liked the first few, then it just got off kilter. Can't say I've seen Bates Motel, but it did run for several seasons.

Of the choices Evil Dead. The first film was pretty much straight 'cabin in the woods' stuff, but they Sam Raimi started adding the humor. The recent series Ash vs The Evil Dead carries on where the films leave off. Bruce Campbell cracks me up.

That's a classic of course, not only from the standpoint of how it was filmed, but Anthony Perkins as Norman...kind of the last guy you'd expect to be who he is.

I can see what you are saying, but it's a humorous violence...the Coyote falling over a cliff for example. Not quite like Peter Griffin getting into a drawn out bloody fight with a giant chicken.

I'm on the fence and have to say both. Yeah, the old classics are great, Disney, Warner Brothers, Hanna Barbera, are what I grew up with. As I got older, I discovered Beavis and Butthead, Ren & Stimpy, South Park, Family Guy and others, I like them. Are they for for young audiences,? No, but I still get a laugh. Odd how animation studios haven't been able to come up with that mix of young / adult humor liked the old stuff did, that appeals to all, seems to slide either one way or the other. End babble.

Like most things, I have a sort of top ten list of favorite scary films. One that I can say really freaks me out though is Prince of Darkness, by John Carpenter, better known for Halloween. The premise concerns a strange cylinder of liquid found in the basement of an inner city church which may contain the embodiment of Satan. The priest calls in help from the local college and a team of students and teachers arrive to study the thing. This was the first time I saw a film use technology to 'measure' and unseen force, kind of like Poltergeist later did. It's set in a church, the last place you'd expect a horror film to happen. It plays around with the concept of theoretical physics and atomic theory, what if this thing we call Satan actually is the anti-Christ as in anti matter? But I babble...
