Well, here’s the next comic in my short reboot of my old webcomic series (the previous short reboot can be seen here).
Well, for the penultimate comic in this mini series, I thought that I’d make a cynical comic about those jump scare-based horror movies that used to be all the rage in the early-mid ’00s.
Of course, American studios liked them because the lack of gruesome scenes meant that these films got a profitable “PG-13” rating in the states. However, since our censors in the UK are somewhat stricter with horror movies, most of these movies would get the same censorship certificate as a few “proper” horror movies do (eg: a “15” certificate). So, when I was a teenager, it was kind of Russian roulette which type of horror movie you would see when you went to the cinema LOL!
Although, at one point, this comic contained a cynical reference to the fact that these kind of films were released by American studios, I later changed this since I realised that said American studios didn’t actually invent this genre (in many cases, they were just lazily remaking much better horror movies from Japan, Korea, Thailand etc…).
