Throwback Thursday: What Movie Scared You The Most As A Kid?
JStew & Cori here, it's Throwback Thursday! This week, we wanna know what movie from your childhood scared you the most?!
JStew: Hmmm... It's kind of a toss up. To me, The Shining was about the scariest thing going back then. The slasher movies of the 80's didn't really scare, as they relied on being gross more than anything. But the psychological nature of The Shining made it truly frightening. On the other hand, the first horror movie I ever saw in the theater was Amityville Horror. The original with James Brolin and Margot Kidder from 1979. I was five, and got dragged there by my cousins. Needless to say, I didn't sleep right that night....
Cori: I've always had an overactive imagination, which means I'm not a huge fan of horror movies. And the one that screwed me up the most when I was a kid, I didn't even see the entire movie. I saw probably a total of 5 minutes, by accident at a neighbor's house, and was messed up for years! Child's Play--that was it for me. My step-dad had to go into Chip's Video in Orono and have them take down the poster of Chucky that was hanging in the window because I wouldn't even pass it to walk to school. And of course, with the release of each subsequent Child's Play movie after, I was tortured all over again! Took me a few years to get over that one...and no one in my house slept for those years because I was always waking either my mom or my sisters or my brothers because I was so freaked out. (Sorry guys!)
Of course, you all had your own traumatic cinematic experiences. Check these out, and leave the light on please!!!!
