The Husband absolutely loves scary movies. When we were first married he would bring home a new thriller movie for our date nights, and then beg me to watch it with him all with the excuse, "I just want to spend time with you!". So I would give in. Big mistake!
I don't do well with scary movies. I have an overactive imagination and even though my mind knows it isn't real, it doesn't mean my imagination when I'm sleeping knows the difference between real and imagination.
So I would give in and we would cuddle on the couch to watch the new thriller movie. Within it would have me so wound up in a nervous wreck I would literally have a stomach ache. I'd end up "watching" most of the movie with my head buried in the Husband's shoulder and only hear the music. Big mistake number two!
We all know the music from a scary movie is what really makes the movie above and beyond scary! Honestly you take that composition away and you would probably wind up with a comedy. It is what creates the suspense.
So there I was a young bride, buried in her husbands shoulders and I'm still subject to the most intense and bone chilling music. Close your eyes, and think of the most terrifying and intense music you've ever heard, sitting in the dark, and then all of a sudden….
Your sweet husband just grabbed your leg saying, "Gotcha!" at the same time. You jump, scream and land 5 feet away. Oh yeah…this is how thriller movies usually transpire in our household. You can see why I don't like scary movies that make me jump.
Do you like scary movies that make you jump?
