Friday Night Fright


I have never seen...


Any movie in the Friday the 13th franchise.

Any of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies.

Any of the Halloween movies.

Child's Play with that Chucky doll - or any of the movies associated with it.

Any of the Saw movies.

The Exorcist.

Any Scream flicks.

The Blair Witch Project.

Any movies that contain zombies.

Any flick where someone was or is considered the Evil Dead.

No Cujo, no Christine, no Carrie, no Children of the Corn, no Needful Things.  The only Stephen King movie I can admit to seeing and liking is The Shawshank Redemption.  Can't get much better than that.

I'm not a fan of horror.  Ed can't believe I haven't seen any of these movies. 


"You've never seen Friday the 13th??"

"Nope."

"Ever?"

"No."

It's not my genre.  Give me drama, comedy, romance, even action.  But horror?  Not interested.  Walls don't bleed, dogs don't open car doors, people don't call you from inside your house. 


The guys in the movies are stupid.  The girls are even more stupid.  And always seem to wind up exposing their tits when running from killers. 

Since the Halloween holiday is almost upon us, AMC is running a
Fear Fest showing a lot of these movies.  I've been occupying myself with other stuff - catching up on Downton Abbey and watching movies on my Amazon Watch List.

I have to maintain my 46-year record of not having seen any of these movies.  I can't break it now by watching even one.

Pan's Labyrinth was bad enough.
