First, let me say that this time of year is one of my favorite, not only for the free flowing candy, but the cooling temperatures and colorful trees. I am also an avid scary movie fan. Although, that wasn't always the case. There was a time, from about the time I was 9 years old until my early twenties that I was not in a horror movie state of mind. In fact, I avoided them at all cost. My earliest memory of being totally frightened by a scary flick was Michael Jackson's "Thriller". I am not sure if it was because my mother forbid me to see it then I snuck around behind her back, saw it and had to own up to it when I spent the next three nights crying at the foot of her bed, scared to death!
Then there were the unavoidable slumber parties and "girl/boy" parties where, like it or not, there was already a threat of an "undesirable" movie being popped into the VCR (sorry folks no DVD's or Blueray players in my teenage years). I tried to avoid them, but to no avail, there was the sleep over at a friend's house where we watched Creep Show and the high school party where they insisted on watching Pet Cemetary. If only I had just had pretended I had a stomach ache or a massive head injury, I could avoided so much mental trama. Oh, no, I decided to give it my best shot and watched the movies with my much braver friends. It was okay while we were there, watching, cringing at the gore and the thrills, but as soon as I was back at home, the lights were off and I was left to my imagination, there was no escaping my thoughts, I was a gonner. Now, I love scary movies. But, don't let me fool you, I still worry that a zombie is lying in wait in the dark just around the corner when I take the trash out. Enjoy your Halloween and get scared. BOO!
