As for my score…
Shadow Girl is a Master of Fright
You got 7 out of 9 right!
‘When it comes to all that is gruesome, horrific, and frightening, no one holds the candle to you. Or a crucifix, for that matter.’
ShadowGirl, You got: Bathroom Book
You’re anything but pretentious. No matter what else might be happening (*ahem*), you love to laugh, educate, and entertain. People can always count on you, and you don’t play games. Unless it’s sudoku!
This time of year is the best time of year for TV! If you only get five channels with your ancient TV – PBS will play NOTLD. If you have basic cable – you have at least two choices at any hour of the day. If you get a package cable deal with pay stations… at least you have FEARNet onDemand. :winks: If you get the premier, holy shit, satellite dish, 7000 channels – you probably don’t sleep much during October!
We all like to think that if WE were in that horror movie – we’d kick some ass, we’d NEVER be as stupid as the actors!
We shout at the screen, “Don’t run upstairs!”, “He’s right behind you! Can’t you hear him!?”, and “OMG! take.off.the.high.heels.you.stupid.twit!”
You’re being stalked by a homicidal maniac, all your friends are presumed dead. You’re all alone. WHY ARE YOU TAKING A SHOWER?
Just for fun… here is the Would YOU Survive A Horror Movie? challenge.
I’m interested to see what everyone gets, post your status in the comments so we can make fun of each-other!!
WHAT BOTHERS YOU THE MOST DURING HORROR MOVIES?
Do you have a favorite chase scene? What movie, and why?
*Mine is STILL from the original TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, Sally is running through the woods in her white bell-bottoms… and what happens…?
She gets her hair tangled in a fuckin’ tree branch! Oh! I have really long hair, and I can imagine that playing out. And…and.. It’s never been redone! How is that possible? Such a great scene, have I missed a rip off scene? Or, does this scene really suck and I’m the only one who loves it??
Leave comments, let’s chat!!
Peace, Love, & Necrophilia ❤
