Our society has to be one of the sickish on the planet and at the same time teens pay to go and watch it at the movies -- Then when there is a mass slaughter down the street , the people all say ""oh wow we are in shock"" <-- wtf ? Why it is everywhere in TV in movies in the news in print in books in radio in music , violence is instilled in our youths from day one.
IMO Slasher movies should have been ban a long time ago - however people such as teens keep paying the money to keep that garbage growing .
I think with teens it's all part of the rite-of-passage look-for-danger thing that society has made damn sure is not available to them in a healthy fashion any more. It seems to be something teens really need to get out of their system - especially young men - but since there's no honour in being 'a brave' in our megatribe, they've got to get it somewhere.
The fact that horror schlock and crazy action films aren't for kids, and 'adults' don't like them either, makes them vital for teens.
We're not supposed to like 'em! (though the unfulfilled teen in us sometimes does)
