Rob Zombie’s Advice On Not Being Afraid Of Horror Films

It’s the Halloween season, which means plenty of new horror films are hitting the theaters or classic horror titles are in heavy rotation on TV, but what if you’re afraid of scary movies?

Enter Rob Zombie, with the most blunt, sage advice ever.

Zombie talked with WRIF’s Jade Springart back at this year’s Rock On The Range, and he had this to say about overcoming a fear of horror movies:

“Stop being a big baby.  [Laughs.]  I don’t know.  Some people are just like that.  It’s really funny.  I have people who work for me that, like…my booking agent, who’s like 60 or something, and he’s seen of my films, because he’s like, ‘I can’t watch them! I cannot!’  I don’t know.  I think it’s just the way your brain’s wired.  My parents didn’t really care what I watched as a kid, so they took me and my brother to see ‘Jaws’ when we were like little kids, or we’d watch ‘The Exorcist’ or whatever.  It freaked us out like crazy, but by the time we were teenagers, we were so jaded we didn’t care anymore.”

 

You heard the man:  STOP BEING A BIG BABY!

We certainly weren’t kidding about the advice being blunt.
