@groot_molly asked the Twitter community, “Am I the only one who doesn’t do horror?” In answer to her question, I am not the greatest fan of horror movies or shows myself. But, there are a few I’ve been able to get through. Yet overall, I can tell you, it’s very rare that the words “I feel like watching a horror movie” come out of my mouth.
The Haunting of Hill House was so good. But, my closed eyes made me miss some parts. I didn’t close them my brain did. After watching a few episodes I graduated to watching at night. By the way, If or when I do watch horror anythings, I watch them in broad daylight. This is so that I have time to FORGET. It works sometimes.
I watched IT one afternoon at home. Not the easiest thing for me to forget. Don’t get me wrong fantastic movie but, it renewed my fear of clowns. I will still get around to watching IT Chapter 2 but in the safety of my home and yes in broad daylight.
Michael Jackson’s Thriller video was another one. I watched it when I was 4. Let me tell you, the memories lasted a life-time. While the dancing undead was spectacular, when I went to bed that night they lurked in my closet, under my bed and waited in the hallway for me. Since that, closed doors are mandatory at bedtime. And I’m not sure which horror movie It was that had windchimes in it. I’m just going to say this! When I hear windchimes I feel like something bad is about to happen. Horror movies taught me that. Where were the parent advisories in the 1980s?
You, Molly.Groot, are not the only one who doesn’t do horror. Is there anyone else out there who is like us?
Thanks for reading and Happy Halloween!
