I agree that it's fun to watch scary movies with a group of friends and scary by yourself. In my case I believe it's because the movie seems kind of rediculous when you're with a group of people you also feel safe because there's others to protect one another. Your mind doesn't run as wild with others because they are sometimes commenting on things that are just stupidly scary and when you're by yourself you're alone in the dark and your thoughts run wild with all these situations that will probably never happen, but there's nothing to distract you from those thoughts except the scary movie.
In my opinion watching scary movies and watching comidies are more fun with another person or group of people. When theres other people there you tend to read off of their reactions as well as yours...if your with a group whose laughing at something, you'll tend to laugh out loud yourself. If your with a group watching a scary movie and everyone else is scared, we have a tendancy to feed of their emotions as well as our own. Or sometimes because in a group you are less scared and can laugh at the overy silly and ridiculous parts of scary movies.
A lot of times, scary movies are scarier when watched alone (in the dark)... scarier equals more fun the way I see it.
However, it is fun when you have someone to watch it with, because there is more socializing ... "Eek, did you see that!" ... "I'm never going in the basement again!", etc... it kind of makes it more interesting.
To me, both are fun... but I guess it depends on the person.
- Generally, I think that watching any movie, and doing most things are more fun with friends.
I think because there's someone to feel the anticipation with. You have someone to shriek with in the exciting parts, guess whats going to happen next, hold on to each other. When your alone, you feel concious and it isnt as exciting. At least thats how it is with me.
I cant agree to that...I find it fun either way because I love scary movies...of course it is more fun with someone there to enjoy it with, but its still fun to be watching it alone regardless.
