Fox Hates Horror

11.03.2006by: Ammon Gilbert
I woke up and started the day without a hangover and cup of joe, and I thought to myself 'man, this is gonna be a good day'. Then I saw the segment on the FoxNEWS show 'The O'Reilly Factor', and my day went to blue birds on my shoulder to being just plain pissed off. Damn them!

The segment Bill O'Reilly hosted was talking about if horror movies of today have gone too far, and then continued to bash films like SAW III, TCM: THE BEGINNING and HOSTEL for being the forefront of the scum of America. Their witch hunt basically singled out the whole SAW franchise, and Lionsgate Films as a whole as the main culprits for destroying the strands of morality in this country. WTF???

O'Reilly then has some A-hole Hollywood know-it-all, and some psychotherapist (aka Psycho, The Rapist) talk about how the new 'Splat Pack' are nothing but Hollywood whores, who only have jobs because their movies make a lot of money. Then they ask 'who's seeing these films' and continue to treat horror fans and fans of these movies like the scum of the earth. Oh, and according to this, if you watch these movies, you have serious rage issues and will likely act out the violence in real life because your reality button is totally f*cked.

Are you getting pissed off yet? WATCH THE VIDEO and prepare to feel the rage the Psycho Rapist tells you you have for watching these 'Horrible Horror Movies'. I can almost guarantee that none of these people have ever seen any of the movies they're talking about, and really- they're just talking out their conservative asses. Funny how Fox's THE HILLS HAVE EYES is only mentioned in passing here, and I guess they really don't want us watching TURISTAS, or anything FoxAtomic is releasing either. Talk about a bunch of ignorant f*cks.

SAW III director Darren Lynn Bousman is understandably just as pissed off at this report as your or me, and was cool enough to write a blog about it in retaliation over at BLOODY-DISGUSTING- definitely check it out, as he has some very interesting things to say about O'Reilly and Fox News in general (beyond the fact that they're a bunch of goat f*ckers).

But what do you think? Do you like being called out as having mental issues for going to see these awesome movies? Do you like having a couple of jerk-offs preaching that these films are horrible? Spit some bullets below on your reaction to this bullshit news story, and boycott FoxNews if you don't already.

In defense of Rush Limbaugh, I may not agree with him on everything, but if you were put on addictive meds after having major back surgery, you'd be a pill-popper too.

Good point!!!!

"You ever notice literature never gets hit? When was the last time a book came out and was blamed for a recent massacre or whatever? And there are a LOT of horror novels and true crime novels on the shelves. Or Art. I've seem some pretty graphic paintings/pictures but you don't hear about those at all."

Great point foxgate2000

Maybe they should look in their own backyard first. After all, I never heard of a Republican Senator having sex with young boys because he watched horror movies. I'd rather take the rage-filled stigma then the pedophilia/child molester one anyday. But, like most on here, I'm laid back and easy-going, avoid confrontation, etc. In fact, a good horror movie (or game such as GTA or Destroy All Humans) is a great way to let off steam with no one getting hurt. Or I could actually go outside and

Or I could actually go outside and shoot hoops or something, but I digress. What gets me is why isn't artsy things never get blamed? I mean, Columbine was blamed on Manson and other like bands, then Rockstar games took the hit for the moral decline of America, and now, once again, horror films.

And there are a LOT of horror novels and true crime novels on the shelves. Or Art. I've seem some pretty graphic paintings/pictures but you don't hear about those at all. They only attack the things that are widely popular and spread when the crimes they are blaming those things for are as rare as the things they AREN'T blaming. Yeah, that made sense in my head.

I will admit, I'm not really on the O'Reilly-hater bandwagon either, I just see him as an old guy who just happens to think differently than I do on some things. Really this is just an example of someone waxing intellectual on a subject they are actually ignorant on. If they wanted to really do something interesting, they should have brought on someone from "The Splat Pack" or someone who is at least an authority on horror films, instead of the dude who wrote "Hollywood Nation," (which I've

If they wanted to really do something interesting, they should have brought on someone from "The Splat Pack" or someone who is at least an authority on horror films, instead of the dude who wrote "Hollywood Nation," (which I've read) since that guy's only really an authority on the lefty politics of Hollywood. It was kind of silly of them to bring on two people with the same opinion O'Reilly has, since there isn't a debate going on.

Like JAWS, I watch a ton of horror movies, and I'm a pretty laid back guy. Even when someone is acting out aggression towards me, I tend to just shy away, rather than stab them to death like people think horror fans are prone to doing.

And I also agree with JAWS on another thing: I wouldn't bring a kid to a movie like TCM: The Beginning, or Saw III, or Hostel, or any other movie that lays on the meatsauce. This isn't because I think he/she would go on a killing spree, but because I wouldn't want to put up with them having night terrors until they're in high school!

Let's see

I can't get the video to play. Oh well. First let me start off by saying I don't hate O'Reilly.

Booooo Hisssss.

Yes I know. But anyways thats besides the point. I find this to be just the same old poo that has been said about horror films for the last 25 years. Nobody can seem to point out how this leads to violent behavior. It's just another way that they are trying to explain the worlds problems.

I find it rather funny. And it bothers me not one bit that they say this. I am one of

I find it rather funny. And it bothers me not one bit that they say this. I am one of the most mellow cats you will ever meet and I have been raised on horror films.

On the other hand I was at TCM:The Begining and there was a parent there with their 10 year old child. Not sure how I feel about that.

Anyways not sure what my point is except that I think everyone needs to just laugh at this because its just the same ol silly shit that has been said for ages.

I agree with Space Coyote

"But one thing folks, when you say things like "OMG THEYRE SO STUPID LETS KICK THEIR ASSES LOL LETS GO AFTER THEM FUCKING NEOCON COCKSUCKERS," all you do is give them ammo to see "LOOK HOW AGGRESSIVE THEY ARE!!! SEE WE TOLD YOU SO!!!" so my point is this, remain calm, peaceful, and intelligent when you respond to stuff like this"

Yep.

Classic!

Oh man! Like said in the replies below; do these people have their heads up their asses or what!
Humankind had a taste for horrible, disgusting events from the beginning. From the gladiators to the witch-burnings and the public executions that were still common around the globe only a century ago.
Now that entertainment is in fairly harmless shape, we get a tightass conservative tv prick who from somewhere summoned a haggard 'the last thing that got in my undies was a bunch of bats'

Now that entertainment is in fairly harmless shape, we get a tightass conservative tv prick who from somewhere summoned a haggard 'the last thing that got in my undies was a bunch of bats' shrink-wannabee and a sell-out reporter that probably is scared of the smurfs, and tries -by their opinions-, to blame the downfall of society on modern cinema.
If people do fucked up stuff it is because they are already fucked up themselves, even if they were inspired by a movie that says nothing! They might as well have been watching the news (now that is some sick shit).
And pffff, as if todays movies are that sick. The really disturbing idea's have been used many years ago, you never hear them mentioning that.

these guys havent even seen these movies. horror films keep the ills of society at bay, but they're too stupid to get that. thanks for bringing this up, this is insulting to horror fans like me.

Bull.

What about the studies that SHOW that with the premiers of horror movies, the following weeks usually show a DIP in violent crime, and that weeks with family oriented films or otherwise nonviolent films, the violent crime rate RISES? Doesn't that mean we should start protesting PG rated films?

I hate these reactionary, conservative newsreports. Faux News is right.

lmfao, what a load of bull, most of all the part about horror fans having "rage issues" and being likely to act out scenes, ive been watching horror films since i was 5 or 6 and i'm a very peaceful and none violent person. if anything these films let me vent out any anger i have in a none physical way

these morons can go back to watching their chick flicks filled with skinny people which obviously must do a lot of good for those people with self image problems

Fuck you, Bill O'Reilly

Bill's head is so far up his ass that it's no wonder all he sees is shit.

Ignorant jackasses. They've never seen any of the movies they bash, and heaven forfuckingbid anyone else simply have fun watching them.

After watching Saw III, I didnt go home and make plans to tourture people in order to teach them the lesson of life, I walked out of the theater and went "Wow, that was a really good movie." But apparently I have all this pent up rage coursing through me so I guess I'll go kill a

Fuck this news.

This is typical mainstream media. Thanks for bringing this to my attention Ammon. Does anyone else think we should challenge Bill's opinion on his show? Send Ammon or the Arrow after his ass to explain that we're not sadistic, we're not potential murderers and rapists. We understand that the images are fake. Ask him if war movies that show graphic violence are okay. Ask him if Deliverance, that shows a MAN being brutalized, is okay. Let's call this fucker out and challenge him to a

Say no to censorship

Fox "faux" news are a notoriously biased right-wing network, who push a seriously ultra-conservative agenda and that means the horror genre gets blamed for society's supposed moral decay.

This happened back in the 80s with the British Video Nasty banning frenzy : any movie perceived as gory - even those films that actually had no gore whatsoever - were banned by "concened individuals." Then some conservatives launched a crusade against Heavy Metal music in US, and again repeated in the 90s

It'll never end if people keep giving in to these neocons.

Then ofcourse there's Masters of Horrors' Imprint which had to go the STV/dvd route because it was too "gruesome" for tv.
