I wonder why I've always been struck more deeply by heavy metal than horror cinema. To me, horror cinema was nothing to be taken seriously, because the situations were so unbelievable. People are brutally slaughtered, but in my mind, they usually don't warrant my interest because of how unwilling they are to fight back or escape the threat. Of course we can pick out exceptions, my most notable favorites being Alien and The Descent. Still, I've never been able to connect with horror cinema in the same way metal connects with me.
