It's the 15th Day of Twisted, and I have to admit that I must be asleep at the controls because I can't find today's featured author's post! I made a calendar with people's names on each date that they volunteered to post on, and I have my author's first name written down, but I can't find her post anywhere in my email or anywhere else. So, my fault and I apologize.
So since I don't know how to contact this first name only mysterious author, I decided to talk about scary movies. It is almost Halloween after all. I saw an article on MSN.com the other day about the 50 scariest movies of all time. After flipping through the slide show, I had to admit I just didn't agree with them. I mean, they had some stuff on there that I had just thought was funny, like the Exorcist. Don't get me wrong, that is fun to watch, but I don't really find it scary. Weird, yes. Creepy, kinda. Scary, no.
Scary movies seem to go a few ways for me: terrifying, amusing, or let down. Could also be a combination of these labels. For example, I found Thirteen Ghosts terrifying. I would not watch that again if you paid me. I hated that guy with his head in the box. I already said I found the Exorcist amusing. I just watched Paranormal Activity and I found that to be a combination of all three labels. It was creepy, not terrifying. I laughed at the part where she got dragged out of her bed and down the hall. And I hated how the movie ended, total let down.
So what are your thoughts? Scariest movie of all time? Supposedly scary movie that you found to be more of a comedy or stupid? Comment away!
