I watched the film Critters last night, for the first time in at least 20 years. In retrospect, my childhood favorites were all somewhat inappropriate content for my age group. But I LOVED scary movies as a small child. When I was four, my favorite movie was Poltergeist. And to prove how weird I am to a whole 'nother level, I'll admit that my favorite toy was to play with plastic Easter eggs as people. Kind of like Weebles, but without faces. I named all of the yellow ones "Carol Ann" because she was blonde.
So basically, I've been desensitized to all horror, gore, and otherwise spooky happenings. I do not flinch in movies, I do not jump at haunted houses, and I do not scare easily...ever. I release spiders back into the wild, unless it's a widow and then I'm fashioning a blow torch out of hairspray and a lighter. I've faced snakes armed with a plastic sack and a spatula, before. I even jumped cones my first night on rollerskates. You. Can't. Scare. Me.
What're your scariest moments? What made your heart race? Movies, television, novels? That one time you and your gay friends got chased through a cemetary by a bunch of homophobic rednecks? Wait...that one hjappened to me. If it's media related, I'll watch it and film my reaction. I am up for a challenge! Please scare me this Halloween.
If you can get me to react, I'll give you a prize. A good one. Like, I'll make you something one-of-a-kind!
