To like or not horror films is a question of preference.
I particularly dont like to much, but I watch horror films sometimes.
Usually a watch action, fantasy and heroes flms.
Also I am a big star wars fan.

i dont understand why people like horror films. Maybe some people enjoy but i dont like horror films. One day i saw Happy Death Day its really good films but really awful.I saw for a half. I think this stuation it depent on people. For example my brother really like horror films and when we watch films he would like horror films. My favorite film genre comedy,dramaor romantic films. It is enjoy me. Alfred Hitchcock always make action or horror films. Finally i like this listening thank you...

was so beutiful i really like the tinks of horror and zombies and all that

Oh yeah! That's my favorite zombie movie, "The Dawn of the Death" I think that's it's name in english, and my favorite part of the movie is when they arrive to the mall and they have fun in there, but also have to fight against the zombies coming in by the underground parking

I am surprised that nobody have cited the movie “The Ring” with Naomi Wats because for me It is the most frightful of all. I loved horror movies when I was a child, but maybe I prefer thriller movies like “The silence of innocents” with Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins ( I have read also the book but the movie is better). For the some thriller movies are more dreadful than some horror movies. For exemple: zombie movies are frightful for you? I think that a movies like “From Dusk till Dawn” (a zombie movie) by Quentin Tarantino or “Planet Terror” by Rodriguez aren’t scary movies. The shasler films (Wich is the etymology of this word?) can frighten a teenager but can’t scare an adult. I prefer the movies with spirits: “The others” with Nicole Kidman or “The sixth sense” with Bruce Willis. Is a concidence that my favourite horror movies have as main character some excellent actors or actresses? For me in every movies the difference in quality is done by the actors.

I like watching horror films. It' s really excited. I like ghosts:) But I don't like 'slasher films'.-this is my new word :-). I don't like zombie because it doesn't scare me.
And Yes, l've watched lots of Hitchcock's films. I really like his films. Especially The Birds and Psycho. Whenever I watch the films l really strain.
and yes, To me, there are some differences between psychological thrillers and horror films. l think psychological thrillers are more impressive.
l lıke this listening activity. ı learn new words and the subject is interesting.

hi, i am masud rana pervez from Bangladesh. i am writing you for a little information. actually i weak in English. do you know any website that i can question any time for meaning of english to bangli language.

Hello masud rana pervez,

I just did an internet search for 'English Bengali dictionary' and saw several results including Google Translate. I'm not familiar with any of them, however, so I can't really recommend one.

If you're interested, you might want to look into a class at the British Council in Bangladesh. I'm sure the teachers there would be able to recommend you the best resources for learners like yourself.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
