As atheists, do you find it difficult to get into horror movies based in the supernatural or with supernatural elements? I'm finding I can't suspend disbelief when it comes to this genre. Really ruins the experience for me.

Most of the time, I enjoy movies with a supernatural element. 

What annoys me is when an atheist character finds god or is angry at god and has a spiritual awakening during the movie.  Breaks the movie spell for me and highlights the lazy script-writing.

I just don't like horror movies, lol. They're either too gory, too cheesy, or too reliant on visual schticks thereby forfeiting the chance for a decent story. Or all of the above, lol.



I do enjoy (good) fantasy and magical stories, though.

I enjoy vampire stories.   I guess I characterise god as just another mythic beast, such as a vampire, and suspect disbelief for the duration of the story.

No, I don't find it difficult.  I generaly enjoy them.  I was very disappointed in the ending of LOST when it turned all churchy.  I read that a bunch of new movies are being made based on different bible stories.  Now Brad Pitt is to star in one.  So I thought that was odd.  I guess though that if you are an actor you can do any role.  But the thing that bothers me is that with bible/god/religious books/movies compared to say vampires or zombies.  Is that so many people believe the bible stuff.  I mean we all know that zombies aren't real. Does any of that make sense?  Did I go OT too much!?

I really got in to the first season of 'American Horror Story'. I enjoyed the supernatural element until they made it all about the anti Christ and what not.

 Never had a horror movie scare me. Startle yes, but scare no. I find them stupid. I really wanted to like them. I never put two and two together as to why I cant' get scared about them. I won't watch bloody ones like SAW and such because I hate the voilence. Bummer, guess I'll stick to romantic comedies. :)

Check out this link thought. Scary elevator prank. I think I would be a bit frightened at first too. The set up is perfect.

 Brad Pitt enjoys doing mythcial movies. He was in Troy, so you know, he can be in another mythical movie, even if the book they took it from is widely believed as truth. :) Perhaps if they make more movies about stories, people will view them as stories. :)

Probably not, wishful thinking. Ihope they do Noah and really hit hard on the fact that god killed millions of people in a flood. But he is SOOOO LOVING and FORGIVING>

Yes Noah is one of the stories.  I read the article in the latest Entertainment Weekly magazine.
