31 Days of Halloween – Day 11

Day 11 – How I Act When Watching a Scary Movie

Bucket of popcorn, check! Large soda, check! Plenty of napkins, check! Time to watch the previews! Make a mental list of all the upcoming movies I want to see (and of course forget them all once the movie is over). Time for the movie…

Is that a chainsaw moving towards the middle of the guy’s wide spread legs? It is! Get him, get him! Damn, he moved! Oh, dear, they are trapped in a car wash! Kill them, kill them! Yay, you got them! Oh, that chick was way too nice to have gotten strung up by the throat! But at least you are safe; you killed all the bad guys. Now get into the car and get away. Oh, no, the military just blew up your car! Sucks to be you! The only thing that would have made this movie better is if the military helicopter blew up the two people walking towards the city at the end. Did I just say that aloud? Shame on me! Wait, was I NOT supposed to laugh through that movie? Was that actually supposed to be scary?

Yep, that’s pretty much the way I act when watching a scary movie. Unless it is actually scary, which is rare. The Ring is the only movie I have found scary in “recent” years and even that has lost its effect on me.

    • Thank you. Sorry, “scary” movies don’t scare me. Screaming babies scare me. Poopy diapers scare me. A child falling off their bike terrifies me. But movies? Not even remotely.

  1. Same thing with me! Only I don’t go to the theater or get the junk food, and I don’t really feel like laughing at that stuff that doesn’t scare me. I mostly find it dumb or disgusting. The really funny parody of horror was Tucker and Dale vs Evil, it is worth watching, but it’s also one of the older movies. Recent ones are usually crap. Reality is the only scary thing, but there a few horror movies that relate to reality.
