I can't take it

I don't like scary movies. I like some movies that are creepy but end well or have a great twist that nullify the former creepiness, but I do not like scary movies. I try to like them, heavens knows why. Matthew loves them, and I wish I could be there for him. But I can't. I'm too sensitive. I still cry when I think about The Shining. Matt says he'll save the really scary movies for when we're married so I wont have to go to bed alone afterward. I really don't think that will solve the problem. It is inevitable that I will at some point be alone and when that happens, the scary scenes will visit me...

Now, I do love Halloween, though. But I love Hocus Pocus, and Halloweentown, and Casper, and Sleepy Hollow, etc. I love the Happy Halloween movies.

I tried to watch The Omen with Matt tonight. I got half-way through before I asked him to turn it off. We spent the rest of the evening watching Nicolas Cage montages and the end of City of Angels. I feel a little better now.

I wish I could like scary movies. But they are just too real for me, and they stay with me for YEARS! I'm too sensitive and impressionable -but I don't really mind, in fact I kind of like being sensitive.

Oh my gosh I am exactly the same way! The Shining still freaks me out too! I was taking a shower alone late at night and I got myself so scared thinking about that movie I ran upstairs as fast as I could after I got out! Also you need to email/facebook/some way send me a picture of your wedding dress!

Yes! I know what you mean. I feel exactly the same way. I hate that lingering sense of foreboding and evil... And the thing is, Matthew seems to take EXTREME pleasure in scaring the life out of people like you and me! BUT when you described the type you CAN tolerate, it reminded me of "The Others". If you haven't seen it, that would be one that you could watch with him and then not regret. At least it's that way for me.
