Cover of Poltergeist (25th Anniversary Edition)

I look outside and all I can see is a misty light coming from the streetlights. The fog is so thick you cannot see further than a few meters ahead. Every light has that soft spooky glow that reminds me of old scary movies (yuk!) or stories about witches flying unseen through the dark night (yay!).

I never have been a fan of scary movies, always avoided them as much as I can. I think it started with me watching Poltergeist when I was way too young. You know the story… friends brother gets the movie and lets the kids watch it…. I was terrified of that old geezer in the movie. Still am… I know…it’s sad but true.

I was however always fond of a good story and fairytales. I can read the scariest books, hear the most frightening stories and that doesn’t bother me at all. I find it fascinating and am glued to the tale every second. I loooove a good book with a good story, even a really scary one.

Just do not make me watch it in a movie. Not sure why… I think it is the sounds and the music. My mum went through a phase when she loved scary movies…which meant that whenever we rented a video (yes I am that old) a scary movie was picked as well. Of course I would watch it (aren’t I a sucker for punishment…) and by “watching” it I mean hovering behind a pillow while shoving my fingers into my ears ever so often.

I am not allowed to sit next to anyone when watching something scary either… as I have a tendency to jump at every sound and grab hold of the person next to me… which is not all that appreciated. Very inconsiderate of them don’t you think?!

So I will just look out and think of some spellbinding fairytales. No scary movies for me anymore and you know what… that is totally fine with me.

    Well, it’s not that you’re grabbing whoever is next to you when you get scared during a movie, it’s the fact they may not have any fingers left once you let go … *cough* … You’re stronger than you realise …

    Scary movies for two are a must. After all someone needs to cover my eyes when I am freaked out. ;P

    “…hovering behind a pillow while shoving my fingers into my ears ever so often.” <— yep. That's how I watch scary movies too!
