Film critic Kenneth Turan recently wrote an article called "Why this film critic gave up on horror movies" http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/la-ca-mn-horror-kenneth-turan-george-romero-20171013-story.html
Although he (we think disingenuously) framed the entire thing as an entirely personal choice, of course he did it in the most public way possible. But he ends it with:
"Why would I want to put myself in the hands of someone whose sole intention is to make me feel as awful as possible? Until someone gives me a convincing answer, horror and I are finished."
So here is our stab at giving (in a way) that convincing answer.
