First let me say~~~I don't feel the need to blog everyday, but I guess it's my wind down time, and since everyone goes to bed so much earlier than me it's my time to think, and watch movies, and catch up in everything else! I average 4 to 6 hours of sleep max! My days are so crazy now with running my husband's business 3 to 4 days a week and working full time weekend nights! I have found that blogging has been a good way of letting it all go and starting fresh the next day! Speaking of watching movies, am I the only weird one who loves horror movies? I mean seriously every time we have friend's come over which isn't often because of my work schedule; the question is~~ So what movie? Every time I get the same reply anything but horror and gore! OK I admit it I guess I must be an adrenaline junky or am I just weird?! I LOVE them! The one's that make me jump, scream, have dreams whatever it is I am addicted to scary movies! Psychological thrillers are my favorite but also the ones that seem to stay with me longer?!
Some people skydive, some people do crazy things I watch scary movies! Sounds rather tame to me! Comparatively speaking that is! Most men won't even watch the stuff I watch! WTH?? Lucky for me if hubby does stay awake long enough to watch a movie (lol) it will usually be a horror flick of some sort! Even my reading preference is horror! I have tried for years to read romance novels and haven't gotten through one yet! Give me horror and self-help, or relationship type books and I will read them though!
So with all that said the 3 movies that have had the biggest impact on me would have to be:
"When A Stranger Calls"
I was about 13 years old babysitting and watching this movie, the kids were asleep and I sat in the basement wrapped in a blanket scared out of my wits! And yes you guessed it " the phone rang" I ran upstairs screaming like a wild hyena! Still haven't seen the new one, and heard it wasn't very good!
I had never heard of this kind of thing in my life ( demonic possession?) and I remember how worried I was that this actually happened to people! I was about 15 I think when I seen it in it's entirety! To this day it still gives me chills up my spine!
Now after watching this movie and reading all the reviews years later I realized how truly afraid the cast was! To this day Craig T. Nelson still won't speak of it? The events that followed that movie are really creepy!
So why do I find this stuff so fascinating? Why do I like to have the "beejesus" scared out of me?
If you do like scary movies which one do you remember seeing first? What kind of impact did it have on you?
FYI (Tiney) my posts generally don't take me but 25 to 45 minutes, tops!;)
