    I will watch the old cheesy black and white movies or some paranormal related movies...and I will talk to the TV and say "don't go in there you nut!" LOL!

    I will not watch the gruesome ones...hubby likes the zombie movies..(GROSS) and says he likes the make up effects and that basically...good wins over evil and the zombies are doomed if he ever met one..LOL!

    We do have limits though..the ones that are just really really evil and sick...no...we will not watch them!

    That's a great way to put it, starve it to death. If we feed our physical bodies with bad food it will be unhealthy, so too with how we feed our spirit. Also, we all need to soul-search about things we cling to and try to justify, even though we know they aren't really good for us. Because James 4:17 tells us, "If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them".

    I realy don't watch horror movies in the traditional sense. Although all things are permissable, I definately don't think horror movies beneficial to my growth in Christ. They truley are counter productive to your faith, as I think most people here seem to agree. If your faith is strong enough that it doesn't influence you, then the movies are just plain stupid because the perfect love within you is casting out all fears which nullifies the purpose of the movie to begin with.
    That being said, I have recently seen a couple "Christian horror" movies. "The Visitation" and "House" both have the gospel inbeded in them, which give them a usefulness at least, but still don't scare me.

    Saw is not a horror movie. Take it for what its worth , I encourage everyone to at least give it a peak.

    There are 7 in the series , the first 'SAW' is the best and the only one really worth watching. Like most sequels the others fall short.


    The short of it...there is no nudity or sex. It really makes you think about how you look at your own life and how much we take for granted. It really is an amazing movie. Its not a slasher, zombie, slice and dice nonsence stupid "horror" movie.

    Everyone that I've talked into watching it walks away with the same opinion...WOW.

    The theme 'horror' and the jacket cover are VERY misleading.

    Hubby watches horror movies and will tell me the plot of them if I can't stand to watch it. Most I try to just see the art side of it..like the special effects and makeup...things like that..it helps some..but still no...can't watch! LOL!
    Weird thing is...I will walk thru a cemetery at night instead of watching a horror movie! :shock:

    I saw the first Saw movie and it was weird and gross at the end. I never watched the other ones because they became too gory. I dont think you could pay me to watch them lol. If you like gross movies though, watch Frozen. I had to skip ahead a whole scene it was soo graphic. My husband always teases me, 'we should watch Frozen again!' I am like No Way! Never!

    I would advise my Christian brothers and sisters to avoid them at all costs. This is the genre that is basically inviting demonic oppression into your life. Did you know that Jeffrey Dahmer used to obsessively watch the Exorcist 3....

    I voted yes.

    Not much of a horror person though to be honest, I prefer romantic comedies. However I do enjoy a decent zombie, vampire, or werewolf movie. The only horror movies I tend to avoid is possession movies, not because I think that demons jump out of the screen, but because they are too creepy for me.

    I have never once had an issue watching movies, maybe some nightmares but those happen without movies anyway.
