Why do I torture myself like this? I’m reading (not for the first time) a book called Dangerous Beauty and it so horrific. Worse that the worst slasher film you will ever see, and I am not a fan of slasher-cum-horror films.
But the horror in real life is far worse than what writers can dream up.
The most horrific film I have ever seen is Roman Polanski’s The Pianist. I had nightmares for months. I will never watch that film again because it was so horrific. It made Schindler’s List look like a Teletoon cartoon.
God, the nightmares are all around us and we just keep perpetuating them . . . most definitely more horrorful than any Grimm’s fairy tale about being eaten by wolves.
Seems the Grimm bros. suffered from writer’s cramp when it called for telling a real horror story . . .
