    Horrible/terrible

    Hi!

    Is it correct to say "it is a horrible movie" or it is better to use terrible?

    thanks,

    They are both correct, but each version implies slightly different things. A horrible movie could be one with lots of blood and guts, and a terrible movie could be one which wasn't well made.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
