What horror movie still scares you even now?
The other day I was looking a few horror movies that we had received at the library, that people requested and it occurred to me that now horror movies are not scary as they used to be. They are more gory and make one jump. Well, a few of them can make one jump. Who doesn't get a little jumpy when you watch a scene in a movie and are not expecting something when all of sudden a creature jumps into the scene totally surprising you. Well, that has happened to me and it can really make my heart beat really fast.
Now we all have watched at least one horror movie that has really scared us, maybe even until now. I have one that has done that to me and even until now I cannot see that movies, it still scares me to the bone. This movie was made a long time ago and they even explained how they did the tricks during the movie but it is still scary to me. That movie is The Exorcist, I stil cannot take some scenes out of my head even as I think about it now. I can remember my brother and I watching the movie and he wasn't scared but I was horrified and scared. I got so scared that I ran out of the living room into my bedroom and hid in my bed. That night I had the worst nightmares ever and so since then I have not dared to watch that movie again. I didn't even finish seeing that movie either. I know that it is fake and maybe real at same time but it still scares me and always will.
Another movie that really freaked me out when I was younger and it really doesn't much of the time is Chucky. Who remembers that doll who came to life and turned the humans to dolls? Well, I can remember for sure. I use to love dolls and thanks to the Chucky movie, I feared some of my dolls would come to life. I can remember having nightmares of my dolls coming to life and heading towards me. That sure made me reconsider watching Chucky ever again a few years after that. Now I think I can take watching a Chucky movie because it would only make me kind of laugh because I know that it is so fake.
Who can remember Freddy Krueger? I so did not like his movies, it truly made me lose sleep again when I was younger. While my brother enjoyed it, I covered my eyes and waited for the most horrible moments to pass. Well, that didn't help too much especially when they have a trilogy in one channel of Freddy Krueger. Who can say they didn't dream of Freddy Krueger actually getting in the dream while sleeping? When we are young especially ten or twelve years of age, you can go wild on your imagination. But now I have seen some of the movies and to me they are not scary, instead they are just more predictable. Nothing scares me about that movie anymore.
Those are three movies that kind of have stayed in my mind ever since I was young. Two movies I have gotten over and I can actually watch without jumping by surprise. It seems that horror movies are not as scary like they used to be, they may make one jump in a few scenes but for the most part you can say that they seem to get more gory each time they make one.
I know that we each have seen a scary or horror movie, do you have one that still scares you so much that you cannot watch it even now? What movies did you see that stuck in your head and you can really never forget?
