For once, I'm glad of your 'wget --spider' trick. I got a broken link!

Actually sorry for putting you to the bother. I'd posted that, and then I thought "Hey, wait a minute, I think Netflix (over here) has the Forensic Files." Sorry, my bad.

I just watched Disney's Cinderella_2015.

I liked it a lot, which is strange, coming from me. Sure, the acting dragged until Cinderella's father had been croaked his last, but You're supposed to be chatting at that point.

Anyhow, It wasn't cartoons, it was acted, and well acted, with Cate Blanchett as Cinderella. I thought the Captain (of African Extraction) was blended in well and given some influence despite him clearly being the 'token black person' that actually makes their racism stand out more.

But it's a good, clean movie, no sex/violence/drugs/demons, only a little magic with the crackpot Fairy Godmother.

Excision

A somewhat dark yet tragically humorous 2012 film starring AnnaLynne McCord as Pauline, a brilliant aspiring young Surgeon, Ariel Winter as her younger Sister who is ill with Cystic Fibrosis, Roger Bart as her loving Father,Tracy Lords as her unloving Mother, and Malcomb McDowell as her High School Teacher.

Heal the sickness.

^ Um. The trailer was very captivating. Love the angry teenager.
I understand this would be a combination of weird humour with something else.
Would you say that other part is rather scariness/suspense (not a big fan of that in horror movies), or disgust (the trailer suggests some scenes that would make me cringe very much, to the point that I couldn't enjoy it anymore)?
I can take a fair amount of gore, but some things I saw in that trailer...

You sound like a facebook content moderator

Am I the only person left who wants to enjoy movies they watch? Is it such a big ask? Not to have blood, guts, or serial war, violence, sex, or mental distress attack me for daring to watch this movie?

There's something different about the effect of movies these days. I've sat through movies with these elements before, but wasn't upset by them. An affair doesn't have to include 5-10 minutes of two actors faking a sex act to let you know they were in bed together. An Indiana Jones movie has serial violence but it's almost on the level of a platform game. But some of the stuff these days is disgusting. Am I the only one to notice that change?

She's a disturbed young lady who propositions a popular girl's boyfriend as a potential prospect to lose her virginity to and picks a certain time of the lunar cycle to have it done, and asks a particular favor of him.

She has a blood fetish and it has short fantasy/dream sequences where she bathes in blood, watches herself cough up blood, and she is just a disturbed young lady is all I can say. If you see real life pictures of her she's very beautiful.

As long as you're at it watch May starring Angela Bettis. It's probably something you'd enjoy more and she's still a strange girl. The kind I like.

^ Thanks.
In retrospect I realize my question was silly, because it's largely about personal preference (what sort of horror I'm OK with, and what sort I'm not) and therefore unanswerable...
I think I have an option to watch it, and will at least try.

Still, why do you think I'd enjoy May more? The IMDB page reminds me of a preschooler I'm working with currently, one of her parents is a veterinarian, and she always aims to emulate whatever she thinks that's like... she's also angry and misunderstood, yet highly creative, and not easily disgusted. The times we found slugs and worms in her pockets... and just today she proudly told me she had eaten them, too - real or imagined?
