Scary and Dark Entertainment

I usually have a somewhat strong liking for forms of entertainment (such as books or movies) that are based on horror, or elements similar to horror.  By no means is this my only interest when it comes to forms of entertainment, thankfully.  But I do appreciate the good dark story every now and then.  There are some things, though, that I really despise about some forms of the genre.  For example, I detest bloodiness.  Like, literally almost anything having to do with blood (emphasis on the almost).  There’s just something so repulsive to me about bleeding; I cannot stand having to endure a movie that relies on the overuse of this particular characteristic.  Also, those times when a plot has been done absolutely excessively can certainly irritate me.  I enjoy seeing something new and exciting, something that really isn’t so boring.  Fortunately, in recent years I believe the genre has definitely witnessed a sort of improvement in the realm of being exciting and fresh.  This is something I suppose we all can be grateful for.  On the other hand, the truly unfaithful adaptations of books is generally a little annoying to me.
