Ok I’m not sure how many of you guys are aware of this but I am a Huge Movie Buff. I love movies, when I look back I think movies were a way to help me get away and not have to look at myself and how I was feeling. But even more so I found for some sick reason I love scary movies. I know I’m afraid of my own shadow, so why Scary movies?
Even when I was a kid I can remember sitting in the back of my parent’s car in my Pj’s at the Drive-In( how many remember the Drive-In) and I was supposed to be sleeping but sure enough, I had to sneak a peak. Now the movie was “The Deep” and I’m sure if I watched it now it would be pretty hokey. There was a scene where this giant EEL came out of a hole in the wall in the ocean and bit a guys head. Now for a young kid that was very scary, I couldn’t sleep for weeks. But I couldn’t let my parent’s know either or else I would have gotten a spanking lol. So I suffered. My own fault. Then when I was dating in high school I went to see “Poltergeist” that was a big Blockbuster everyone talked about it. So I had to be cool and go to it with this cute guy. Once again, scared out of my mind.
The worst was when I would babysit. Oh my, and it was on Halloween, so yes you guessed it I had to watch “Halloween” on Halloween. All alone, in a strange house. That’s why I say I have a sickness when it comes to scary movies. lol. I’m terrified but I have to watch them. My husband laughs at me, but I do. Are any of you the same way? Do you like scary movies?
Right now our little town has a theatre and it’s showing the Latest “Steven King” remake “IT”, now I”ve never saw the original. But from what I hear it was really good. So I convinced my husband to go see it. Neither one of us know what it’s about, I’m already psyching myself out as I’m typing this. We invited some dear friends of ours as well. So tomorrow night we’re going to see this movie. I can’t wait. Now don’t spoil it, if you’ve seen it. I’ll let you know tomorrow how it went. Before you all wonder, NO my mom is not joining us. She is the complete opposite to me. In fact, she’s never seen “The EXORCIST” (the original) so you know she’s not going to want to see this. The only request she always has is that we bring her back a bag of popcorn with extra, extra, butter. I told her “hell yes I’ll be having popcorn, how do you think I hide with the scary parts” yep, behind the popcorn!
