Frankly, I find the who concept of religion hilarious. I am sure it has to do more with my own experience. If you are religious, I respect that, and I hope you find happiness in your spiritual journey. I however, have only been met with hypocrisy and hate when it comes to religion.
I realize that the stereotypical version of the religious fanatic is the white conservative family, but if you so much as imply that you do not believe in god in a Hispanic household you may as well cut off all ties with your family. I never straight out told my mother that I was an atheist but she has caught the hint already. My dad believes I am practicing dark magic. Unbelievable! He says that my taste in horror films is “too extreme,” This is the same man who hates any mention of religion and has watched Cannibal Holocaust with me ( a film that left a far more horrible taste in my mouth than any of the “extreme” films I have watched on my own)
I guess it is because I am more interested in the paranormal. Violence does not interest me, and violent films are what my dad deems “acceptable horror.” I do not know how the actual killings of animals in Cannibal Holocaust is ok, but the message of faith and fear in The Witch (an amazing film, in my opinion) is too dark. I am guessing it has to do with the title. I watch film about a witch, I am a witch. Amazing.
This doesn’t make any sense. Sorry.
