So ghouls and zombies don’t scare you, not demons, not werewolves, not even vampires (though that last one has become far too friendly a monster in recent years to still be terrifying – Thanks a bunch, Stephanie Meyer). What about the horror villains grounded in the real world: what about the good old-fashioned slashers? Admittedly most of the crazed murderers in horror movies are skewed to the extreme end of the killer spectrum, even so, many are influenced and inspired by urban legends as well as real-life killers. So the question remains: is it scarier if it could happen to you?
