Do you like scary movies that make you jump?
In a word - no!
I don't do scary movies. I don't like them, I don't enjoy them, I don't want anything to do with them.
I haven't seen most of the "big" ones that the rest of the world has seen. Most of what I HAVE seen, I've seen on TV, which, thankfully, means they were edited a bit.
When I was younger, I liked to read scary books (lots of Stephen King when I was in junior high!) but then I wouldn't watch whatever movie was made later. I vividly remember reading Amityville Horror in Mr. McGurty's 6th grade classroom. I'd hurry and finish my work, then open my book behind my desk, on my lap, and read. When I got to the scene with the blood dripping down the walls of the bathroom, I LOUDLY gasped, scaring myself and all my friends! Dork!
Around that time, I also read all the Flowers in the Attic books. Creepy!!
So, to sum it up - scary movies = no, scary books = yes
Aren't you glad you know that now, so you can go on and enjoy your weekend?
