Yeah rated-R horror is usually the staple I prefer. I was talking with a friend and we were discussing films that have tried getting into the PG-13 foray. Whether it's to get more people and increase sales tickets, meet rating standards, or even to change the tone it does happen.The original Halloween has essentially no blood, yet back then and even now there is no way around getting passed an r rating and killing somebody. That's fair I guess, talking about the ratings and looking at films like The Ring, sci-fi/creature features, and tons of others walk a fine line. But a current film evades me in its ratings and how supremely effective it has been. Paranormal Activity as well as its sequel are both R-rated and yet there really is nothing too bad about it other than a few "f-words" so i think there can be a posible market out there especially in the ways of "found-footage" style flicks similar to the Blair Witch. I think if filmmakers/writers/producers are daring and creative enough there is material out there. And for those in opposition, the films DO make bank which is always integral for Hollywood to back it.PG-13 horror can exist it just has to do that one thing nobody seems to do too often anymore SCARE YOU.
P.S. Just noticed the Freddy Smiley....SWEET! :Freddy:
