I don’t do Scary Movies because they scare me. And with Halloween around the corner, all i see during commercials are ads for them. I have always had a wild imagination and whenever i have seen a movie that was remotely scary, i have played it in my mind over and over that i scare myself for days.
When i watched the Exorcist (mind you i was maybe in the fifth or sixth grade) for the first time, i couldn’t be in the house by myself for thinking that i would begin to convulse and or levitate or something. Needless to say, i eventually got over it but it took awhile.
Even as an adult, when i have dared myself to watch movies (because i think i am tough as an adult), i have been freaked out. I saw The Ring and The Blair Witch Project and scenes from Paranormal and HATED the experience. I know it’s a movie and it’s all made up but the effects and music just adds to the realism and drama and scary and spooks me out. I am in awe of people who LOVE scary movies, like my husband’s aunt. I just don’t get it. I shiver just thinking about it.
This is all to say, i don’t do Scary Movies. And i won’t be doing Scary Movies ever again…even when i am old and grey!
