My son, in his early thirties, has seen every one of the "Saw" series and "Texas Chain Saw" series, etc. I simply can't stand that genre and have never understood why my son enjoys that dreadful violence so much. The closest I have come to watching similar movies is the first "Exorcist." I did see the first "amityville Horror" and I was so scared that I couldn't be alone for a couple of days and nights.

Give me a good gangster movie for my thrills. Just saw "American Gangster" today with Denzel Washington and Russel Crowe. This is based on  actual events. The movie lasts nearly three hours, but it is tense and gripping all the way through. This is one of the rare movies in which  Denzel Washington is the "bad" guy.

I guess if there is violence in a movie, it has to be a true story in order for me to see it.
