If horror is your go-to movie, you clearly have a dark side that you're not afraid to embrace. You're blunt and make sure to tell things as you see them and you tend to be more on the pessimistic side. But don't go thinking you're a horrible person! You're strong in the face of any fear you might feel and your friends know that they can always lean on you for support.
