I’ll admit that I have seen enough horror movies in my life time that at this point it would take a hell of a lot for me worry about the characters on screen. That probably makes me a bad person… I’m okay with that.
Here’s the weird thing though. I’m so desensitized I can watch a movie where hundreds of people are having “unpleasantness” done to them and not shed a tear. But if you kill the dog off in a movie I will cry like a little girl and hate you forever.
I still remember watching that crapfest “I am Legend” and when they killed off the dog my rage was a living thing. There are many reasons to dislike that movie, but I will never ever…. EVER watch that movie again because I can’t stomach that scene.
I know it’s fake, no doggy was hurt…. It makes not difference to me.
