What was the first horror movie you ever watched? πŸ‘»
.
Mine was actually one of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies, but I don’t really count this as I was made to watch it against my will. My older brothers thought it was entertaining to put me through this trauma which would then make me swear off horror movies until my early 20s!! At this point I decided I wanted to get into horror, so I watched the Scream movies as a gateway as they’re quite tame (more slashers really!) πŸ”ͺ
.
And it worked! Because I quickly reached a point where I could watch any horror movie. I remember bigging myself up to watch The Shining in particular because so often it is alluded to as being one of the SCARIEST movies of all time.......
.
It did not phase me in the slightest πŸ˜‚ I was incredibly disappointed in that regard. I felt like β€œthat’s it? πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈβ€ But now I appreciate the movie in terms of how iconic it is and the stunning cinematography.
.
As for the book... I found it to be much more creepy πŸ‘» and I’m finally getting around to posting the @foliosociety edition that Matthew got me for Christmas πŸ–€

Also you may have seen in my stories that I’m having issues with commenting... I’m hoping normality will soon resume as interacting on here is so important to me πŸ˜”

    @spoopyhol literally? πŸ€”πŸ˜‚ I’ve never seen Cloverfield... ISNT THAT CRAZY. But I’ve seen Cloverfield Lane or whatever you call. I almost had to leave the cinema cos I started to feel very claustrophobic 😬

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @arj2044 I had never heard of this so googled it and one of the screengrabs is genuinely disturbing πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @ludmilanogueira73 anything to do with beetles makes me feel on edge!! 😬😬

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @minamiotohime why are siblings the worst influence πŸ˜‚ they clearly get so much joy out of their torment!!

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @tanjascharling that is hilarious πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I would definitely rank The Exorcist as one of the scariest movies of all time.... and Village of the Damned just... isn’t πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ that cover is pretty cool though!

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @_supercoven_ as should we all 😬 still one of my faves β™₯️

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @alive4stories did you think it was just a fun little movie about some birds? 😏 I can see how that would leave you reeling πŸ˜‚

  • @bookishmommy 16 March, 2019

    The one I remember most is The Exorcist

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @jessicatidey omg aliens used to HORRIFY me as a child!! πŸ˜‚ I didn’t see the movies when I was young but my brothers would play the video games and the images just chilled me to the core 😣

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @davefera I watched The Exorcist for the first time as an adult and it still horrified me πŸ˜‚ I vividly remember driving home in the dark and I just felt so on edge the entire journey!!

  • @davefera 16 March, 2019

    @jobis89 I can take a slasher flick..but those supernatural ones scare me like no other..I don't mind blood! Just stay out of my head! Lol

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @julesfierauthor 5?! You were practically a baby πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚ 5 year old me would have been traumatised for life

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @runphill I’ll allow it 😏 I do love Gremlins! I think it would be classified as a horror? πŸ€” It’s a Christmas movie to me mostly πŸ˜‚

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @xx.kayla.white.xx safety in numbers πŸ˜‚ I can watch them on my own... but I like to know others are at least in the house πŸ˜‚

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @l0st_b0y_81 Dream Warriors is the BEST πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ» I LOVE that one

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @rcsreads I haven’t seen that one actually πŸ€” must add it to my list 😏

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @cinematiques Pennywise-centred nightmares? 😏

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @isabelatak that’s a pretty great place to start! 😁

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @creepygayuncle I haven’t seen this before!! 😱 I don’t know how. I’ll make it a priority 😁

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @sumiranji oh you started off with one of the most horrifying 😬 no wonder you’ve been left a little scarred πŸ˜‚

  • @jobis89 16 March, 2019

    @zombiesreadbooks love Dream Warriors so so much 😍 I think it’s my fave!

  • @tanjascharling 16 March, 2019

    @jobis89 I agree! The cover was awesome, the film not so much. I had a lot of years of build up so it could probably never live up to it anyway πŸ˜‚

  • @beeplane72 16 March, 2019

    Jaws. When I was seven. Oh boy!

  • @sumiranji 16 March, 2019

    @jobis89 yeah, and I saw it as a teen..!! πŸ˜–πŸ˜

  • @julesfierauthor 16 March, 2019

    @jobis89 I have been addicted to horror ever since

  • @julesfierauthor 16 March, 2019

    @jobis89 I guess I got immune to horror and cannot live without it.

  • @julesfierauthor 16 March, 2019

    @l0st_b0y_81 my favorite in the franchise and could rewatch it again and again

  • @the.imperfect.library 16 March, 2019

    @jobis89 I went through a phase when I was 16/17 where horror was all I’d watch but now I’m scarred for life πŸ˜… My brother calls The Grudge a comedy...I still can’t think about it when the lights are out!!

  • @zombiesreadbooks 16 March, 2019

    @jobis89 Same here 😁

  • @agent_chet_cooper 16 March, 2019

    I wanna say The Exorcist... Gave me nightmares.

  • @angie_aulbur 16 March, 2019

    This edition is gorgeous πŸ™Œ

  • @cinematiques 17 March, 2019

    @jobis89 So, so many of them.

  • @bookwnoname 17 March, 2019

    Dark Crystal. That’s a horror movie, right? πŸ˜‚ Scared me silly.

  • @maria.tenandsixcrafts 17 March, 2019

    Carrie. The original. Or maybe it was Nightmare on Elm Street or Salems Lot. Such a long time ago

  • @rafeibarakat 17 March, 2019

    Loving this πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

  • @too_fond_of_books 17 March, 2019

    I think my first horror movie was Friday the 13th. It scared the crap out of me. I think I was 7 or 8 yrs old when I saw it.

  • @bundledwithbooks 18 March, 2019

    My first horror movie was The Exorcist when I was about 5 or 6. I begged my mom and she let me watch it. Within a year or so I watched The Shining. I was quite afraid for many years following but eventually became fascinated with the horror genre.

  • @foliosociety 22 hours ago

    Do you keep the edition in the freezer?? 😊

  • @jobis89 21 hours ago

    @foliosociety when it gets too scary I’ll just hide it under the sofa - at least it doesn’t get damp that way πŸ˜†

  • @foliosociety 20 hours ago

    @jobis89 Good idea!
