I don't enjoy the feeling of being scared outta my mind, either! Some movies I can handle, but others aren't worth it! I mean, Silence of the Lambs never scared me & I quite enjoyed it. It is so...I dunno....just unnerving that there was a man that sick that walked this earth!
I bought Signs...M. Nigh Shamylan(sp?) the other day. Last time I saw it was when it first came out. I was a lot younger(I'm only 20 now) & it was really scary the first time I saw it. This time it wasn't near as thrilling.
What was that movie....ummm... Darkness Falls? Is that the one with the girl in the lighthouse? Anways...my lil sis couldn't sleep for weeks after she saw that. To this day she freaks out if she sees an ad, the case for it, or even see it in a store. I think it's funny, buz she wanted to see it so bad & now she's afraid of even the case of the movie!
ETA; My favorite "scary" movie is Lilo & Stitch with those "nasty" aliens!
