October is scary movie month for Americans. I don’t know about you, but I love a horror movie, good, bad, scary, or downright laughable... I really enjoy them. However, I took a big break from them from my late teens until my thirties when I thought of myself as too intelligent (Ha!) and too mature (double Ha!) for them. It wasn’t until I started having terrible nightmares and exhausted all the documentaries and romantic comedies at video stores and on cable that I came back around to them. Some of my interest is based in nostalgia (recalling middle school makeout parties and camp... which was really just another makeout party but uncomfortable and with insects) and then there’s the feeling of facing a real fear, but from a safe distance, that I find cathartic about them. Like, I find it to be a great feeling when I’m no longer scared about something, or when I figure out my fear was really ridiculous, and horror movies are kind of a cheap, safe, and easy way to get that feeling. So anyway, the change in weather and the onslaught of Halloween got me to thinking about sh!t that really scared me as a kid versus the sh!t that really scares me as an adult (okay, maybe not adult, but middle aged dude). Now this will date me, as I’m sure all our replies will but... I remember being terrified by that monster on the wing of the plane in The Twilight Zone (not the William Shatner original tv version, but the John Lithgow movie version, because while I’m old, I’m not ancient, yet). I used to run up the steps from the basement when the lights turned off afraid of that thing! Man, the terror that you have when you’re young! Nowadays, it’s sh!t like A Handsmaid Tale, or I Shouldn’t Be Alive, or.... the [email protected] news that scares the sh!t outta me, like real life-could-possibly-happen stuff. Demonic possession and monsters seem kinda quaint now. So I thought it might be fun to name your first and last horror movie that you’ve seen that left an impression on you. It’ll be fun, and the odds of a complete thread derail at set at 100%, and it might lead to someone suggesting a movie you haven’t seen yet. Who wants to go first?
