Horror Movies That Even Scarier Than Russians
What is your first impression over Russians? Don’t hesitate while you answer. They are scary, grumpy and serious all the time? Erm… perhaps a strong economic country? AH-HA! Strong military forces! All these are typical and stereotype towards Russians portrayed by the western world. But they just have the aura that potentially scares us off, even their horror movies. Here are the 3 main reasons why Russian scares us off. (Not Stereotype)
Reason 1 – Russian Tone and Voice
They normally speak in a low tone and harsh voice that pretty much makes people feel intimidated as if they have offended them. However, this is just the way Russian language sounds.
Have you ever seen any Russians drinking in a local bar? They aren’t always like the western portrays, showing them drinking Absolute Vodka and speaks loudly in the public, even in horror movies, which is pretty much one of the reasons Russians typically scares us off.
Reason 2 – Military and Russian Spy

This has to date back into the Cold War era, when Russia is still being known as the Soviet Union, their military forces are widely shown in public, a superpower country that can go against the mighty United States. Even until today, the Putin Era, the Russian military still stands strong and have their military marching parade every year, exhibiting their military strength towards the world.
Another reason that we know Russian is because of a Russian spy. Almost 90% of the Hollywood movies portrayed spies and intelligence agent are from Russia, especially the villains. This practically shapes the public’s opinion on “bad spy” relates to Russians, even in horror movies. Over time, this has become a norm in society. Sometimes, we know that it’s just a stereotypical opinion towards them, but it is a solid reason to scares us off, isn’t it?
Reason 3 – Russian Horror Movies
As far as non-stereotypical opinion goes, this is the best. Russian horror movies have slowly been evolving and emerging into the world. “The Bride” and “Dead Daughters” have pushed the Russian horror movies into new heights, some even dares you to watch it alone. This makes us another reason why Russian scares us off – because of their horror movies!
