274/365 Scary Movies

I used to watch a lot of horror films as a teenager – usually the kind on late-night TV featuring ghosts, vampires, mummies, werewolves, etc. They rarely bothered me at the time, but something changed as I grew older. I’d recall those movies and my imagination went wild, especially when I was alone, especially at night. Vampires never scared me, but the other preternatural beings terrified me.

These days I am reluctant to watch anything that might be scary, although I don’t mind psychological thrillers and I’ve only seen one slasher movie (the original Halloween) and will not ever watch another (Serial Mom which we watched last night doesn’t count because it is John Waters). Even trailers of scary movies or television shows are enough to make me keep the hallway light on while I try to sleep.

  2. I used to contradance with a guy who was an extra in Serial Mom! He’s in a dance scene near the end. Been a long time since I watched that…and only did cuz it’s John Waters.

  3. I’ve never liked scary movies or TV programs. I can’t bear suspense, and wouldn’t watch them alone or just before I go to bed either. I am with you on this.
