Five Scary Movies that Scared Me Away from Scary Movies #FridayFrivolity

This week the Friday Frivolity hosts are taking a slight departure from the fun and happy and talking about scary movies. I am a movie wimp. I do not like scary movies, particularly horror/slasher ones. Real life is scary enough. The presidential election? Healthcare premiums? IEP meetings? *shudder* I watch movies for escapism and enjoyment. Scary movies just aren’t fun for me.  But, I dug deep for you, dear readers, and found the courage to came up with five scary movies that scared me away from scary movies.

Five Scary Movies that Scared Me Away from Scary Movies - five psychological thrillers that scared me into not watching scary movies.

 

Sleeping with the Enemy

I watched this one night on TV… alone … at night… Luckily, I have an amazing husband so my spice cabinet is a glorious mess and my bathroom towels are always crooked.

Fatal Attraction

Glenn Close? the bunny? Many male college mates were scared to fidelity after that movie because they were afraid their girlfriend or the hook-up might go over the edge. So some good things happened because of it.

The Birds

Credited my Alfred Hitchcock loving husband for forcing me to watch this one when he found out I hadn’t seen it. I still get a little nervous when I see too many birds all gathered together.

Psycho

This movie in color would not have been as freaky. The sequels in color just didn’t have the same edge. But the shower scene still gives me goose bumps, even though I remind myself the blood is only chocolate syrup… only chocolate syrup… only chocolate syrup.

Silence of the Lambs

If you’ve seen the movie, you know what line preceded this and you probably cringed and thought about fava beans and Chianti.

Pretty tame list, huh? How about you? Are you a fan of horror films or psychological thrillers? What are your favorites?
