There’s nothing I love more than to have the shit scared out of me, while watching a scary movie.
Now let my clarify here what I mean by SCARY…
I don’t mean scary as in…slasher movies, where someone gets their limbs chopped off with a buzz-saw.
(to me, that is just plan GROSS)
I mean…more of a suspense cat and mouse movie, where someone is being stalked by an intelligent and mentally deranged psychopath.
I especially love movies where a character is all alone in a house, out in the woods, and the phone lines have been cut, and someone is outside, trying to get in to murder them.
Oh my god….I LOVE these movies!!!
It’s like an adrenaline rush that makes me petrified and excited at the same time.
I like to sit in my apartment with the lights out, curled up on the floor with my pillows and blanket. I position my hands directly in front of my eyes, with my fingers slightly opened, so I can see only through a crack.
I do this to prepare myself, for when the psychopath is getting reading to jump out of the closet and strangle the homeowner.
But it’s always the “leading up to the strangle” that makes me the most frightened.
One of my all-time favorite suspense thrillers is “When a Stranger Calls” with Carol Kane.
It’s about a babysitter who’s getting telephone calls from a creepy man who keeps saying, “Did you check the children?” Over and over he keeps calling her, “Did you check the children?” Until finally, she calls the operator and asks that the calls be traced. And after about another 20 minutes of being tormented by this man…the operator calls back and tells her to get out of the house as fast as she can…because the calls are coming from another telephone line IN THE HOUSE!!!
Eeeewwww…I get chills just thinking about it again!
So, if you ever want to get together with me one night and watch a scary movie, just let me know…cause I’m totally up for it!
