What is your favorite scene in any sci-fi or scary movie? It’s usually the scene when the human turns into some form of vicious animal, or evil fictional character — such as a vampire, werewolf or zombie. Fact is; at a deep sub-conscious level, we love frightening situations, which is why we watch scary movies. And we love the intense and theatrical moments when human retinas drastically change form. We enjoy professional special effects, FX makeup & scary costumes. We like to see monsters, and other characters that look real and are brought to life; whether it’s a scene in a movie, a theatrical play, on faceoff or on Halloween. We all have that animalistic nature deeply embedded within all of us — that needs to be entertained in one form or another.
