Hmmm, bad move perhaps? Character building I say. I love scary movies and books, I grew up on them. I remember as a child watching the “Sunday Night horror” where, funny enough, every Sunday night a horror movie was showed on the telly. Usually the old Hammer horror films with the odd Hitchcock film thrown into the mix. My sister and I used to scare each other stupid, leaping out of wardrobes, hiding underneath the beds, tapping on the windows. Many a night I went to bed utterly petrified that something was hiding in the wardrobe. So you can see how my love for this genre of film and books just grew and grew.
Mr P is amazed at the amount of “crap” as he calls it, that I know about werewolves, vampires, Freddy Krueger, or who Jason or Michael Myers are. In fact it is one of the many bones of contention in our household when it comes to what movie to watch. I inevitable go for the horror or Sci-fi, another great love of mine, while he wants the nicer movie. We generally meet somewhere in the middle with a Thriller.
I draw the line at a bloody Rom Com, the only Rom Com I want to see is one where Jennifer Aniston plays a zombie bride and it’s actually funny!
