My husband has red all the books, and seen the movie while on a recent flight. I caught parts of it and just found it disturbing. The idea that people like watching teens kill each other disturbs me. And then people wonder why people kill other people... like the shooting recently at a theatre. It is called desensitization people. If it doesn't hurt to watch someone being killed, how big of a step is it to pull that trigger? Not that far, we already pull that trigger in many of our video games.
Sure, we all love to live out our fantasies and escape to a world that isn't anything like our own to hypothetically relax - isn't that what movies are for? So we watch people being slaughtered, raped, tortured, killed... our beloved horror genre that is dripping down into other genres, and we consider this entertainment. Just one step away from the colosseum... or our own Hunger Games.
