Horror Movies

I’ll admit it to you guys, I have NEVER liked scary movies (or anything scary for that matter). Remember a couple weeks ago when I posted about the Stephen King books and said I would explain why I don’t like Halloween and scary things. Whelp here it goes! The first Halloween my husband and I were dating I decided to be brave and watch Paranormal Activity 2 with him. I’m a strong independent woman, I thought I could handle it.

Nope. Very wrong. Very wrong indeed.

I cried. Yep, that was me. Crying because I got so scared. In my defense I cried because Charlie (now hubby) jumped because I screamed. He jumped off the couch because I startled him and I started crying because he left me on the couch by myself.

I’m not proud of that fact.

It’s been 3 years and 346 days since the last time I watched anything scary. I’m hoping to beat some kind of world record at this point. (At least that’s what I keep telling myself.)

That being said I’m sure you can imagine how many characters are truly frightening to me.

That crazy girl with from The Ring with her hair in front of her face. (BTW how on earth does she see if she’s got that much hair hanging in front of her face the whole time? Talk about a plot hole. Obviously my priorities are in the right spot.)

Also, I don’t know his name because I refuse to remember, but that character that kills you if you say his name 5 or 7 or 10? times in front of the mirror.

***No there won’t be a picture for this one. Sorry.

I will also admit to having nightmares about the stupid clown from It. Even though I’ve never seen the movie. Clowns are scary to begin with. Now they’re in gutters? Nope!

These are all scary and not ok, however, there’s no character that scares me more than that crazy girl front The Grudge.

Story time! I know you didn’t ask but too late, I’m telling you anyway. I was at a sleepover in high school with a bunch of my girlfriends and it was about 7 or 8 when they decided to put on The Grudge. The first time I saw her I screamed and decided to go to bed. Couldn’t watch any more of that movie.

    Honestly I had a friend in high school who was a horror fan and she worked on my for 6 months and eventually convinced me to watch her favorites. I did so for about a month and just couldn’t take any more! That is the last time I watched horror. hahahhaha So I have some experience but not a ton. She and her mom were crazy and it made her so happy that I watched those with her that I don’t regret it to this day (even though I don’t like being alone at home and feel like somehow staying on my bed protects me from paranormal visitors.) Love your personal stories Anna! 🎃

      Thanks Dani! Haha I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels safer on my bed! I’ve tried a couple times to watch Horror movies and just can’t do it. I know it’s not real but it doesn’t prevent me from getting scared.

    🤣🤣🤣🤣 Your observation of the girl from the Ring is hilarious. And now I will forever crack up when I see her.

    I’m indifferent to horror movies. I neither love nor hate them. My SO loves them though, so I get my fair share if watching in. Jonas’ fave is the first Paranormal Activity. I think mine is prolly a movie better labelled psychological thriller- Session 9. It’s about people clearing out an old asylum, and odd things begin to happen. It is left up to the viewer if the cause was psychological or demonic. I see it as psychological. One if my favourite movie quotes is from Session 9.

    ‘I live in the weak and the wounded, doc.’

      Haha I’m sorry if I ruined it for you. I try and find something else to think about when I’m in the same room as someone watching Horror movies. It’s funny my husband knows not to watch them around me anymore because I’ll wake him up in the middle of the night to explain my nightmare.

      Just based on the quote I can see why it could be either psychological or demonic. It definitely sounds like one I would recommend to someone who enjoys Horror but I will have to take your word for it haha.
