3D?

The harsh horns for the creature theme are iconic.

Not that you needed me to tell you that, I just felt the need to reminisce.

In terms of scar repair, for whatever reason I used to be horrified by blood in movies.

What fixed it was watching Death Race 2000 on a black & white TV. Go figure.

Salem's Lot was the first film that spooked me, then Poltergeist as the house I grew up in was built on a graveyard... Didn't sleep well for a few nights lol

I was about 3 times further out than the buoy, with the beach only visible between the swells and my mates all turned back, when off in the distance I hear a faint "Waaaaaaaaa".

Shark alarm. Well I walked on water back to the beach. Haven't been past waist deep since then. No Siree. Don't like sharks. There was a 4 metre white pointer spotted off that beach just last week.

I can't remember ever being scared by a movie, let alone scarred, but the scene in the Evil Dead with the pencil in the ankle did make me cringe, purely on an empathetically physical level. That's a bad spot to stick a pencil, but then to pull it downwards... <shudder>.


Noooo!

The Hellraiser series was decent for those type things.

Shit, forget movies. I read the wikipedia page for Jeffrey Dahmer last night.

I don't think I'll be doing that again, no.
