Why bad horror movies get made

I love horror moves.  

But you ever wonder why so many crappy ones get made?  

Let alone explain why some get massively popular…

Look at Friday the 13th.  A guy goes around in a hockey mask and kills people in a forrest.  For like, 40 years…  

Or Michale Myers and the Halloween movies…  

Or the Nightmare on Elm Street movies…

At least I’ll give those movies #1 of Al Ries and Jack Trout’s 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing.  Part of their success is, The Law of Leadership:  It’s better to be first than it is better.  

But today I just saw a trailer for Slotherhouse.  It’s about a college student who adopts a pet sloth who eventually murder’s people in her sorority house.

So let me get this straight.  You want to make a murderer out of one of the cutest and slowest animals on Earth?  

That’d be like remaking the movie Seabiscuit with a burro with a bad leg as the star.  

I’ll admit, I’m shining you on a bit because I know exactly how movies like Snakes On A Plane get made.  

It’s because the creators of these films have a vision for what they want and they stuck to it until it was produced.  

It’s the same way skinny people get buff, fat people get slim, and it’s how skyscrapers get built.  Someone imagined it FIRST and then made it happen.

Is imagination important?  Of course it is!  

It’s everything!

Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

Tesla said, “it takes imagination to create your path.”

Steve Harvey said, “It is the preview to life’s coming attractions.”

So if your life or biz ain’t looking the way you want it to, you first need to look at what you are filling your imagination with.  Are you filling it with… 

What you don’t have?


The skills YOU THINK you need?  

All those things will keep you broke and far from the life you want.  

And by the way, vision and imagination are the same thing.  

If you want a new BMW and you don’t have one.  Your vision of you getting a new one is…where?  

Your imagination.  

It will reside there until it appears in your reality and becomes your truth.  

And as Neville Goddard says, “truth depends upon the intensity of imagination, not upon facts.”

So, um, let it in.
