Me and horror movies/books like to keep a good distance - like the distance between the moon and earth.
I remember being very very brave and reading "Omen" - of course yours truly couldn't get through the night despite the night light and the fact my parents room was next door.
Then some years later I saw "Evil Dead". I know in retrospect that movie is more of a slasher flick than a truly creepy horror movie - but at that time - it really scared me to the core. At night I couldn't even get to open the closet door.
(Author must mention she was well below 15 when aforementioned took place.
Then some years later - I was married with a home of my own to run and manage when the dear husb went away on a business trip. I was watching some inane Tamil channel and sure enough appears a Poojari (priest) about to invoke a ghost or some such thing. I am desperately hunting for the remote with eyes glued to the TV Screen - my brain so frozen that it does not occur to me to A) Close my eyes or B) Walk up to the TV and turn it off.
Several years later now a mother and all I sit with my kid trying to appear nonchalant as we watch The Mummy. Someone above must really like me - it was so ludicrous and full of laughs - and Mamma manages to pull off a petard.
But dear folks there is no way that you will get me to watch The Ring or Paranormal Activity and the like.
What about you all - are you brave or cowardly like me?
