Horror movie warp-ed-ness

I like scary movies. My taste has changed. I used to be able to handle more gore, etc... I used to love Scream, but now if I watched it I'd be grossed out and bugged by the cussing. I prefer "Make-me-Jump" psychological thrillers. I like crime shows and stuff too. But I think I may just need to stick to watching Jon and Kate Plus 8 because I'm obviously very sensitive and getting warped.

Call me weird, but I have a lot of dreams about me being taken and held captive somewhere. It's starting to freak me out. On Medium the other nite there was 2 girls being held captive and all I could think was, "That scares me to death!" There are real psychos out there that do that!! :(

Also on Medium one of the girls crawled across the floor to the other girl and I think that freaked me out more than anything. Ever since I saw The Ring and Samara crawled out of the tv... I've been warped by crawling. And then that chick on The Grudge crawls all weird down the stairs. Yep- makes me scream. If Sei wants to scare me all he needs to do is come crawling into the room all Samara-ish. Aack! I was just trying to find a pic of Samara crawling out of the t and freaked myself out again...

What do you think of when you hear "Total Eclipse of the Heart?" Anybody? Anybody? "Bueller? Bueller?" Does anyone else think of that scene in Urban Legends where the girl is singing it in her car to "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and stops to get gas? You know- the part where the gas attendant has her come inside and locks the door and is all st-st-stuttering. She maces him, breaks the window and gets back in her car. Then the attendant finally spits it out "THERE'S SOMEONE IN THE BACK SEAT!!!!!" As she drives off she's all crying and freakin out and starts singing with her cd again all dramatic... then she gets her head chopped off. But anyway... That's what I think of when I hear that song.

And totally off the subject (*Is* there a subject to this post??) But last nite this was the best performance on American Idol. And I don't even care about AI. But this guy is my fave:

Yes, I have officially declared David Cook as my favorite. He is the only one who comes back week after week with something original and fresh. Although JC swears he heard a slow version like this live on the radio here by some group like Foo Fighters or somebody. And David Cook is from around here, so maybe he stole it...

And I don't watch anything remotely freaky because I am too easily affected.

I used to love scary movies, but I guess I have to watch the old ticker ; ) (Really, I'm just kidding, but I don't enjoy them as much as I used to)

I've never seen Urban Legends--kind of glad because I LOVE Total Eclipse of the Heart.

I don't watch AI, but that was a fantastic performance. Isn't it funny, he didn't seem to breathe a sigh of relief until he heard from Simon.

This is why I only like supernatural thrillers, I don't do serial killers and such.
It took me forever to get rid of Samara's crawling image out of my head. If you watch the Asian version of the Grudge it's way scarier than the American IMO.

Anyway. I hope David shaves that hideous thing under his lower lip. I can't look at him and I really like his voice :P

Chris Cornell did a slow, acoustic version first. Click on his name to see CC performance. I think David Cook did it better.

I like suspenseful movies but I'm too squeamish for gore. My hubby can't watch movies like The Ring because corpses freak him out.

Supernatural is one of my fave shows because it has comic relief in between scares. I also watch "A Haunting" on discovery channel sometimes.

The creepiest part of a movie for me is when the little girl in Exorcist does that freaky spider walk down the stairs. I almost hit the ceiling, jumping off the couch, when she did that. Eek!

Tori :) said...

Smirking cat- Eeew! I had to look it up on Youtube. That IS freaky!!

Don't do scarey, EVER. My friend had to coerce me to watch Sixth Sense and promised to tell me when to cover my eyes because they billed it as a scarey movie and I had no interest.
So I have no idea about any of the ones you've referred to.
However. I LOVE Medium. And it DOES scare the crap out of me. But I can't help it. And Monday's freaked me out too. Of course, I can't wait until part two...

Love Medium.

Love psychological thrillers.

Don't do gore. Avoided the grudge, loved the 6th Sense and the The Ring.

Anything really evil and I'm sleeping with the lights on. Al learned early on in our marriage to stay away from them.

No scary movies for me! I didn't sleep for a week after I watched 'Nightmare on Elm Street' when I was in high school. Never again. Having said that, Hitchcock thrillers are my scary movies of choice.

David Cook was awesome last night! I am going to post about it if I can stay awake tonight- so much to do, and then there is blogging! :)

I have the DVR paused on Law and Order right now!

What? Not into A.I? Okay, whatever, we can still be friends.

Whitney said...

I really like scary movies, but more for the suspense. I like to be all tense and wondering what is going to happen! I don't care too much for all of the gore and everything :P
I have to agree with you on David Cook though, he is amazing. I wouldn't mind one bit if he won :)

S said...

You know David is my neighbor! Come on down we can stalk him when he is in town! I ditto on shavin his face and best song evoh. But I must say he is trying to woo the young girls and he sucks at it, its down right creepy at times. Just wait he will blow a kiss before its over!

I watched I am Legend last week and THAT freaked me out... the crazy ravenous zombies and the whole concept of the movie... I was scared at night for a few nights.
