Now, now...I didn't USED to be afraid of scary movies like a wimpy little girl. Back in the day (5 years ago to be exact), I LOVED watching scary movies. The Hubs & I would watch them pretty often. We would go to the movies and watch them, we would watch them at our old house in our basement, we would even (gasp) rent them from Blockbuster (remember those days?).
But those days are over.
I'm a big ol' fat scaredy cat now.
It pretty much sucks. And my hubby gets so sad because I won't watch scary movies with him anymore. He had to watch one last week by himself while I was out with my friends. Poor guy.
The reason behind my scaredy-cat-ness? Two words: PARANORMAL ACTIVITY. If you haven't seen it - DON'T.
Don't judge me. If you didn't think that movie was scary - - you are crazy cakes. Because it WAS the scariest movie ever. It freaked me out. The girl in it KILLS her husband for freak sake. She becomes possessed. I mean - it was banana cakes!! After the movie ended, I thought about it when I left the theater, and kept thinking about it until I FINALLY fell asleep at 4am, Then, I thought about it for the next week, I thought about it every time I heard a noise, I thought about it every time I was home alone. I could NOT get it out of my head.
I was becoming a huge sissy pants. Yup.
About 3 years later...I was finally getting over it. And then my hubby & some friends made me go see PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2....and I about died. I was absolutely terrified. I covered my eyes through 60% of it (and felt like a complete baby)..and I STILL had nightmares about it.
Halloween night?? HATE IT with a passion now. Well..except for Davis dressing up as a cute monkey - that I like. ;)
Embarrassing confession: the other day, I was watching TV and The Haunted Mansion came on (you know that DISNEY movie with Eddie Murphy) and I watched it for one minute and had to change it. Wow. I mean..come ON, Jenna...BUCK UP! :)
Oh how I WISH I could just get over it and realize it's not REAL (along with all the other scary movies I won't watch now)...but I'm not there yet.
I'm working on it....I'm really trying to live by this motto:
Side note: Isn't that print/saying beautiful? You can find Kelli Murray's Art HERE.
SO there you have it. That's the reason I hate scary movies...and going down into my basement now...and sleeping alone. It all comes back to that stupid movie!!! GRRRR!
Is there a movie that you watched that scarred you for life--please say I'm not the only one! :)
