Scary Movies

Haven’t watched enough scary movies to make an informed choice on a favourite. If a movie gets too crazy I fast forward to the end (the same way I flip to the last few pages of a book to make sure everyone makes it out alive!) or I just switch it off at some crucial moment. There are some images that you don’t really need to have imprinted on your brain.

The Panic Room is a good one if you like to be nervous and on edge for over a hundred minutes. It stars Jodie Foster, a very young Kristen Stewart, Forest Whitaker, Dwight Yoakum – a strange mix in a strange situation. And it ends well for the innocent mom and daughter would-be victims; always a plus after all that angst.

When I was a teenager I watched “Wait Until Dark” (Audrey Hepburn, Alan Arkin, Richard Crenna) in a movie theatre and thought it was the scariest thing I’d ever seen.

No matter how memorable (or stupid by todays standards), I still wouldn’t call it a favourite because adrenalin rushes aren’t really my thing. There’s enough scary stuff in real life and I’m saving up my heart attacks for my old age.
