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.
