Psychological is always fun to read or write, I also like slow burns and mystery elements
Same! I also enjoy it when questions aren’t answered directly… having to piece things together to get an answer is always fun to read and write!
Definitely my favorite! I write a lot of stories like that! I just love mystery elements in my work.
My favourite type is the horror where they leave it to your imagination to imagine either what has happened or what will happen etc. I think the formula nowadays too easily serves everything up to you and is overly gory etc, also the need for a jump scare albeit fun is a cheap tactic.
The best horror I watched recently was Pet Cemetery, the original at least.
Hi all, I just started posting to wattpad, and I thought I’d introduce myself in the horror section here. My name’s Curtis and I’ve been a horror fan my whole life, from films, to comics, to novels and short stories. I’m also a published author with three novels and a short story collection under my belt.
I tend to gravitate toward weird fiction, cosmic horror (lovecraftian themes), hallucinatory stories, and myth-driven fiction. If anybody has any suggestions of stories on here with those kind of themes I’d be interested in checking them out!
[S-Ingrate], I totally agree with you! The best sort of horror is the psychological kind. I like Stephen King for often blending supernatural and realistic deeply disturbing subjects in his novels. What sort of books/authors do you like?
I’m a psychological horror fan and writer too. It’s the best kind.
I like psychological and supernatural horror the best to consume, but my one published story was a gross out body horror short.
I have bunch of movies on my to-watch list, bug I’m probably most excited about Brightburn. (A horror take on what of superman was not good?)
Brightburn does look good.
Im making a book of a group of people trapped in the asylum. the biggest problem is that only one can live. i have like an intro chapter up and ill update it when i get home from school.
The Conjuring?..A well done story. Didn’t focus on jump scares that dragged or made the story boring. Maybe it wasn’t “scary” as one would think…but I also feel most people these days have become desensitized to the horror genre. So things don’t “seem” as scary as it used to be. Which is why I think the focus in horror has become to be more about the story. Whether the monsters/ghosts story, or the protagonists. But that’s just my opinion about that:sunglasses:
