I hate horror movies…. they scare me. When I was in college I had a friend who loved horror movies and would peer pressure me into watching them them in the dark in her basement. I’m pretty sure I had my eyes closed for 70% of them. I saw the Blair witch project in the movie theatre and it scared the shit out of me. I was home alone that night and found myself locking the front door. When I turned I was facing a corner. I think I screamed, ran up the stairs and hid under my blanket.
I was even too scared to watch Lost when it came out but to my surprise I have watched all the walking dead and have enjoyed them. Maybe it was time to give horror another chance. I really wanted to watch classic scary like The Shinning or the Exorcist (I think that one might actually make me curl up in a ball and cry) but Netflix didn’t have either of them. I chose Cabin in the Woods. I don’t want to give any spoilers here but it was absolutely not what I expected at all. There were a couple make you jump parts but mostly it was just strange. I laughed a few times too, probably at parts that were not meant to be laughed at. The highlight really was that unicorn, oh and the NIN song for the closing credits.
