The scare was there to stay…
Scaredy cat doesn’t begin to cover it! So, last night my bother-in-law, once again, brought over a scary movie to watch. Even though I told him I refused to watch Paranormal Activity, it made no difference. There I was against my own good reasoning enduring, what I feel, is plain human torture! If you haven’t seen this movie, I won’t ruin it for you. It’s not a scary movie in the sense that it has all those suspenseful scenes; it has everything to do with messing with your head. The whole idea of the unseen is sometimes harder to deal with than seeing it right in front of you. It definitely plays on all those things that happen to you at night that you just brush off by saying, “Oh, it was just the wind”…or was it? The fear of the progression of those little things is frightening, “what if my hand hangs of the bed… will something pull on it?” That idea of being pulled off my bed by an unseen entity, by any of my extremities, was all I needed to keep me up at night. We later attempted to watch Tim Burrton’s 9 but it was no use, the scare was there to stay! It was 4 in the morning and there I was lamp on, door open (so my dog could sense the evil being and I could jump in to prayer action before it was too late) and the TV on, watching The Hills and I still bugged out. “What if…?” By the way, I chickened out in the end of the movie and physically stopped watching it, but I remained in the room crocheting as the movie was still playing. I would look up now and then but I was really too Chicken to keep watching it. So if you are excited by any of this, go ahead and rent it. Come back and let me know how you slept or if you slept at all!
