The horror genre defies boundaries, invading on what people think are taboo themes. The taboos could be about death, sex, violence, or crime, carrying fourth the current audience of teenagers and adults. As the audience empathizes with the traumatized victims, they feel the fear, and endure experiences unavailable outside the cinema. The central code and convention of the horror genre, the isolation location, in which the victim finds help out of reach, rubs against on the audiences phobic 'pressure point.' According to horror novelist, Stephen King, phobic Pressure points are the fears the audiences share of keynote things, like the dark, spiders, and isolation.
The insensitivity and intolerance that human beings demonstrate towards one another is a divisive societal disease that is so common in today’s headlines. Powerful, horrific and eye-opening, Bully is a cautionary tale that should resonate with moviegoers that are tired and shocked about this infuriating phenomenon of bullying and the catastrophic cocktail that it brings to ruining the vulnerable lives of its victims and their families and associates. In this disturbing instance, Bully dutifully examines the case studies of five youngsters that were brutally harassed in schools that predictably resulted in tragedy. Inevitably, two of these tortured kids would kill themselves as a result of the on-going torment at the hands of their bully’s physical, emotional and mental brutality. Sadly, we witness how the bullies’ fear tactics are reinforced by the indifference and non-existent hands-on-approach by school officials and other authority figureheads that appear dismissive if not clueless on how to attack this persistent problem.
Critique on Do Video Games Kill? This article “Do Video Games Kill” by Karen Sternheimer addresses the wide spread idea; video games are the cause for “young killers” (210). Sternheimer believes concern for the influence video games may have on youth is spiraling out of control. She put most of the blame for this out of control concern on the media. She also writes some about politicians and the Juvenile Justice system.
The choices she makes throughout are frequently wrong, although her intentions are correct and honest. Her biggest mistake is her sympathy for Mickey after his accident and her decision to help in his rehabilitation. She had escaped the trap, and then foolishly stepped back in, even without her firm decision not to remarry. This essential point is misunderstood by some viewers, who do not realize that Francine and Mickey are divorced during the last half of the flashback. Technically, Mickey’s attacks are not spouse abuse, but straightforward assault and battery.
The plot in the first movie is written by Wes Craven as well and I the story line is very original and different from other horror films, the similarities is that there are teenagers as in all horror films and they are chase down by the murderer, but the original part is that all this happens when they go to the dream. I think this idea caught people attention as well other director to make a remake. The plot is about a man who hated kids all his life and when they fall asleep the character named
Johnny Hernandez Mrs. James 2 February 2015 Juveniles as Adults I believe that juveniles should be tried as adults because they are old enough to know what they are doing, the juvenile system fails, and teen’s parents/childhood. The reason I think this is because I read a story about a kid named Greg Ousley who murdered his parents because he felt like he wasn’t loved enough, he felt like all he did was embarrassed his parents. One day after school he was depressed, his dad didn’t seem to care as much nor did his mother. So he said, “He has to kill them”, so later that night he shots his parents with a 12-guage shotgun in the head. Then tries to play it off as if someone came to his house, murdered his parents.
And in someone berating their boyfriend or girlfriend, people have arguments and I feel its best that others keep themselves out of relationships they aren’t involved in. No one should be in your business anyways unless you are putting it out there for everyone to listen in. Although if a relationship gets violent then someone should step in and help. However, I feel that Raymond was not berating Cathy, Frank was. The differences between the examples from the movie and the example of the berating girlfriend is that when Cathy’s best friend Elenor seen that violent behavior was happening in Cathy’s marriage, she could take that as her business because she was close to cathy and seen that Cathy had bruises on her.
All characters in The Grapes of Wrath bear moment's of deep self disappointment; however, Ma does not create a chance for them to stumble. Instead, she protects her family from people who would try to break their spirit.

Ma Joad understandingly knows how easily ones spirit can
The narrator discloses that it is actually a good thing that she is not caring for the baby. “I never thought of it before, but it is lucky that John kept me here after-all, I can stand it so much easier than a baby, you see.” (10). The reader starts to get a sense that the narrator cannot care for her baby, as her entire world revolves only around the room and the wallpaper that surrounds it. The narrator’s husband does not want her to do anything in the room, not even write in her journal. “There comes John, and I must put this away- he hates to have me write a word.” (4).
Some think that as soon as a woman finds out she will be a mother, that she should have no problem quitting drinking. It’s just as hard for them to quit, as it is for someone who is not pregnant. For most mothers admitting to this can be a humiliating experience. Currently, physicians rely heavily on history-taking to screen for women at high risk of alcohol consumption during pregnancies (Cook). However, these screenings are not enough since patients are reluctant to admit the amount of alcohol they consume and physicians are reluctant to talk about it with patients (Burd).
