In the film, The Strangers, Dollface (Gemma Ward) kept me hiding my eyes...
The Strangers brought all the gooseflesh bumps moving up and down my body... just likethe scarey movies I watched when I was a little boy in Texas kept me begging my mom to leave my door open and keep the light burning in the hall.
And on those rainy nights when the evening wind came whipping around my house and banging on my windows... I could not even get out a few fearful prayers asking my Guardian Angel to get working right now
Here's Dollface close up...

Thumping and bumping in the house... and then, if one tried hotfooting out into the woods... there's Dollface just waiting

Film over... I headed down the dark hall to get a drink of water

And... and... (if you want to get the goosebumps tip tip toeing up and down your body, then fill those bags with some really hot popcorn and, with some other really easy to get screaming adults, watch The Strangers!)
well... just come along with me.... IF YOU DARE

I don't dare!!! Oh Joseph...I'm such a wuss when it comes to scary movies...I couldn't even handle the Legend of Sleepy Hollow...cartoon!!!

I'm definitely not an adrenalin junkie...give me smooth...give me musicals...oh yeah...dorky, I am!

If you are a wuss... I am either stuck in my childhood fantasies...
(ages 7 to 22) or just a glutton for personal torture... (although very often when the moans and the deep story telling voice are trying to lead me down some deep dark tunnel, I awake twenty minutes later and the creepy film is almost over)

Ha Ha Ha Happy Halloween

Great pictures and creepy settings, Joseph! I love the old '30s and '40s scary movies like Dracula, the Mummy, etc. In the '70s channel 7 showed those every Friday night. Many weeks my friends and I sat down with snacks to watch. I must say that my imagination is good enough to not need anything very graphic to get my rush. I'm old school in the horror department.
