I hate to admit being scared of watching a movie, especially as much as I enjoy watching a good suspense, mystery or horror film, but over the years I have encounterd some movies that bother me in some way or another. I think my first experience was with this movie called "The Scarecrow". I think there are several versions of this movie around and I can never locate the movie I had watched. Itwas made sometime in the mid 70's and having watched it over 20 years ago, I don't know the premise all that much, but I do remember a pair of bright eyes looking through a potato sack of a guy perched on a pole as a scarecrow. I sure as hell would like to try and find it again.
Another movie that bothered me was "The Serpent and the Rainbow" from 1988. I still remember the trailer with the guy saying "I'm not dead." Good movie though I thought.
Another movie was the first" Pet Sematary" from 1989. Just thinking of the kid coming back from the grave when I first viewed it bothered me for many a night afterwards.
Another movie didn't bother me until 1999 and that was "The Sixth Sense". I thought the film was absolutely brillant but the scenes that bothered me was when Haley Joel Osment's character sees the people hanging from a ceiling and the other scenes with Osment's character and the interactions with the dead girl's ghost, cultimating at the wake of the girl who died, when the ghost gives Osment's character a videotape containing the reasons why the the girl had died and the suspects, who were right there at the wake...just wow.
The other movie that bothere me was "The Ring" from 2002. The movies were fine, just the fast sequence scenes that had Samara's movements were too damn fast for my liking lol.
Yet another movie bothered me and that was the" White Noise" movies from 2005 and 2007. I thought both of these films were good but the whole phenomenom known as EVP just freaks me out.
The last movie that bothers me to this day is the movie "Dead Silence" from 2007. The way they filmed the scenes of Mary Shaw bothered the hell out of me and sad to say, I slept with the lights on for a while after and I'm 34 frigging years old!!!
I thought all of these movies were great in their own way, but the most recent horror movie to get my attention (though the ending was flat) was "The Strangers". I believe it was from a first time director and I thought he did an OUTSTANDING job of just having the three masked hoodlums just walk right onto the damn scene...especially the first time one of them enters the house right behind Liv Tyler like it was portrayed in the movie poster!
