Watching a scary movie alone or with a couple of your friends, or loved ones is a lot of fun. The thing here is that most people do it for the sake of it, and not for any substance. However, you can easily find some amazing movies that focus on the scare factor of various types.
If you are thinking about going on a scary movies marathon, there are some ground rules that you must establish beforehand. This is because the whole environment of watching a scary movie is a lot different than watching any other movie, and it can ruin the mood of the people watching the movie. Treat the movie as a movie, and not a scary movie, I will explain how.
Set The Mood
Setting the mood is important when you are watching any movie. You do not necessarily have to turn off the lights because that will make you more aware of the situation. However, you just have to sit comfortably or lie down comfortably. If you generally like watching movies in the dark, you can turn off the lights, but if you are doing it just for the sake of the scary movie, you are actually forcing yourself to think that the movie has scares in it.
Don’t Force It
If for some reason, you do not like scary movies, that is fine. You never have to force yourself to watch a scary movie just because someone is pressuring you. Just like someone does not have to watch an action or a romantic movie because you are suggesting it to them. Be natural in your state, and that is how you will be able to enjoy the movie to its full capacity.
