Horror movies, trick or treats, ghost stories are all around now in celebration of the Halloween. But, personally, I do not celebrate it. I am not belittling all people who are, though. I totally respect them. It’s just not my thing.
I used to watch horror movies before, a lot; Movie marathon of Asian Horrors. The best-ever films that I have seen were Shutter and The Grudge. They were really terrifying that made it tough for me to sleep for a couple of nights. And there was also an instance that I dreamt of Sadako. Eerrrrr! Horrifying! One common thing in Asian Horrors that I have noticed was they all have flash-back stories. I mean, there must have had a story behind all of the Horror thingy.
That was all before when I don’t have something to do during vacations. My “Ate” (sister) in church discouraged us to watch horror movies because my friends and I love to watch those. She said that it won’t help us at all and we’re just letting the devil control us, on which I totally I agree with her. It only fears me and controls me. It makes me paranoid. Ha! ha! Ha!
If you want to watch horror movies, it’s better to check your spiritual convictions first. Will this help me? Is this worthwhile? Is it what He says?
“…and do not give the devil a foothold.” Ephesians 4:27
It’s just my two cents. Happy November to all!
