Then there is the issue of Halloween movies. Do you watch the silly ones with the kiddos? Do you enjoy a late-night scare-fest with your spouse/girlfriends/someone to hide behind? Or do you enjoy the slew of suspenseful horror movies that come out this month? Personally, I am not a fan of scary movies. I get too scared, then we go to bed and my husband is out in 8.4 seconds, and I am left alone in the dark to relieve the scariest moments. (We used to watch Criminal Minds a lot, right before bed. Not a good idea.) I don't think I have really watched a scary movie in . . . several years at least. I do "enjoy" M. Knight Shyamalan's movies (most of them), but I still prefer them in the daylight.
Well, if you are the type who does enjoy the chest-tightening thrill of a good scary show, I have something for you to watch (after the kiddos go to bed). We are Dr. Who fans (not groupies, just fans), and the large majority of the episodes are weird, campy, "out-there" ideas, but I wouldn't classify them as scary, because most of the aliens/creatures don't look very realistic, or like something you could run across while performing your daily errands. This episode is very different. It is terrifying. After watching this, I thought these weeping angels would come after me in my sleep. The episode is called "Blink." Here is a clip that is about seven minutes, but I encourage you to find the whole episode on Netflix (or elsewhere) to really get the most terrifying effect. (Season 3, Episode 11, and Season 5, Episodes 4&5) Unless you are easily prone to nightmares.
