Horror has lost it's sting...

watching supposed horror movies now
models playing actor with a script thats a bore
how do these screenplays sell without know-how?
the films are wretched, i almost throw my burrito on the floor

eye candy for woman or man
but the thrills are predictable
the fx, like a laughtrack, seem out of a can
it may sound ridiculous, but are they no good fables?

everything seems already done
or a rehash of something from the past
rooting for the villian now is more fun
quality is less, the emphasis on fast

perhaps it is us
we have seen now in real life
more than the horror in films we could trust
and what we used to escape is now our strife

it is time for me to delve
into the corners of thought and mind
to venture into those dark corner shelves
that holds my ideas for film to bind

So ends the rhyme.

I will work to in the future, create something that as James Earl Jones, as Thulsa Doom in Conan the Barbarian : "Now they will know why they are afraid of the dark. Now they learn why they fear the night."

A chance of horror, but also a chance of escape, from the real horrors.

[Homer's love letter to Marge written on a postcard] "Maybe it's the beer talking Marge but you got a butt that won't quit. They got those big chewy pretzels here merJanthfgrr five dollars??!!!? Get outta here."

What a great way to tie it all up at the end :D

Well done ;)
