Topic: Things you hate in horror
I'm just curious, what are some things in horror films that you can't stand? They can range from characters, directors and plot devices you hate to things that make you cringe.
For me, it's definitely fingernail scenes. Excessive gore doesn't bother me, as decapitation, bisection, dismemberment, people getting blown up, crushed and dissolved by acid are all fine with me.
However, I cringe whenever someone gets a fingernail ripped off. For whatever reason, I just can't take it, I have to avert my gaze whenever such a scene comes up. They seem to be getting more and more common as well. I recall that Cabin Fever 2 (terrible movie btw) has a particularly nasty fingernail scene. Stir Of Echoes is another one. As much as I like that movie, I look at the floor during the scene where the girl gets one of her nails ripped off.
This might stem from the fact that I've had a fingernail ripped off before, and that fucking HURTS.
