Four more days until Halloween!!! Whoooo!
To celebrate, I’m asking you about scary movies. I’ll admit, I don’t have the most experience with them (or much at all), but I do have some weird fascination with the ticklish, squeemish sensation I get in the pit of my stomach when I watch them. Kind of like that feeling you get when you’re on a roller coaster and it suddenly drops (although I don’t have much experience with roller coasters either. I’ve mostly just felt that when driving too fast over speed bumps).
I have never seen one of the movies that actually has “scary movie” in the title because I’ve hardly watched any “mock” scary movies. In fact, I can’t think of one good thing I’ve ever heard about them. I don’t even know what I’d do with a movie like that, considering I rate a scary movie based on how often I hide behind my dad…
Anyway, In the past few years, I’ve tried to find as many REAL scary movies as possible, although I have a hard time because I avoid R rated movies. However, I have run across some gems, like The Sixth Sense, Salem’s Lot, and The Ring. I also saw the TV version of Thirty Days of Night, which was so fabulously gory that I hardly noticed its insane length.
So, here’s my question for you: Do you prefer real scary movies or “mock” ones (the real question is: do you like to laugh or to cringe)? Which movies were your favorites? And do you think I’ll like The Shining?
