Buzz In: What TV Shows and Movies Stress You Out?

Last week I went to see District 9 with a group of friends, and let's just say that not everyone had the same opinion about it. Some of my buddies couldn't get enough of the explosions and action scenes, while others thought it wasn't worth all the cringe-worthy moments. I was really intrigued by the movie even though I'm not big on alien entertainment, but I have to admit that the overall experience was a bit stressful.

There are some TV shows and movies like Dexter and A Clockwork Orange that make me squirm but in the end I find worthwhile. The discomfort is endurable and part of the fun. When it comes to campy horror movies, though, I tend to be a pretty big wimp — I just never understood why anyone would want to watch all that blood and gore without a fascinating storyline or relatable characters. I'm usually left with a sense of relief and at least two weeks of nightmares. What about you — what TV shows and movies stress you out? Do you watch them anyway, or would you rather stick to stuff that's a little more warm and fuzzy?
