10 Horror Movies For People Who Really Hate Horror Movies

- Page 1

It can be pretty hard to sell some people on horror movies. The jumpscares are startling, the characters are often really stupid and unlikable, and the plots often exist just to set up more scares. In short, they don't seem to care about being good movies.

Fortunately, there are actually some great horror movies for people who aren't normally into them; ones that aren't too spooky and have cool stories. The next time you meet someone who says they hate horror, just park them in front of one of these 10.

Alien (1979)

The movie that put sci-fi horror on the map, Alien is wrapped up in enough cool sci-fi imagery and futuristic stuff that it never gets TOO scary. Just maybe get ready to jump when the cat shows up.

Near Dark (1987)

What's better than vampires? How about Wild West vampires that roll into a town and cause chaos? Fun fact: this is an early movie Kathryn Bigelow, director of Point Break and The Hurt Locker.

Dracula (1931)

One of the earliest sound horror movies is also one of the best. It keeps a creepy atmosphere thanks to its lack of music and Bela Lugosi's iconic performance as the Count, but it's ultimately more creepy than scary, and is plenty tame by today's standards.

Creepshow (1982)

An anthology movie based on the horror comics of the post-war era, each clip manages to be creepy while also a little silly. Super fun.

These next few are especially good...

'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Star Returns To TV And Everyone Was Freaking Out

Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid was basically a requirement. Pretty much everyone had to watch it, otherwise everyone else would think you were crazy. Seeing all those bratty kids roam around the chocolate factory, demanding Wonka explain all of his eccentric genius is one of those things that I think was supposed to make me think Wonka was being mean, but really it just made me hate those kids - even Charlie. I know he was technically the hero of the story, but even he broke off from the group and invaded a space he

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.


You Can Live In The '10 Things I Hate About You' House And It's Actually Amazing

We all remember watching 10 Things I Hate About You in the late 90s and becoming completely obsessed with Kat Statford's rebel style, or Bianca's collection of cute sundresses. The Stratford sisters were iconic for us, and we can all admit that part of the reason was their absolutely epic house. So many moments in that movie took place in that home, and it just felt like the most iconic and idyllic place for this story to unfold. I don't know how many times I thought that it would be comfortable to sit on the porch of my house and

The former teen idol had roles in iconic movies like Terminator 2: Judgement Day, American Heart, and Pet Sematary, but now Edward Furlong's name is barely remembered. The forgotten actor was on the road to becoming a huge star, with an enormous career ahead of him, but what happened to derail such a successful career?He was first discovered in the early 90s, when he was cast as John Connor in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. He truly stole the show and held his own against Arnold, and managed to nab a few awards for being a breakthrough actor. TriStar PicturesThe
