    Default true ugliness

    What is this "true ugliness"? Is it related to the film? I don't understand.

    ex)When we seat ourselves at tenth-tow center in a theater showing a horror movie, we are daring the nightmare. Why? To show that we are not afraid, that we can ride this roller coaster. Horror movies, like roller coasters, have always been the special province of the young; by the time one turns 40 or 50, one's appetite for double twists or 360-degree loops may be considerably depleted. We also go to re-restablish our feelings of essential normality. Freda Jackson as the horrible melting woman in Die, Monster, Die! confirms for us that no matter how far we may be removed fromo the beauty of an actor or actress, we are still light-years from true ugliness.....A horror film also urges us to put away our more civilized and adult penchant for analysis and to become children again, seeing things in pure black and white.

    If we compare our own looks with some actor or actress, we may feel we are not attractive, but we are not nearly as ugly as this character in this movie was made to be.

    Okay, I got it, you can be relieved in a horror film seeing mosters or something...
