That Was Weird...

Let me start by saying that I don't see a lot of scary movies. At least, not "horror" scary. This probably stems from me being afraid of the dark. Well, that and my overactive imagination. I'm pretty sure that I've got the imagination of a 10 year old on Lik-m-aid and Red Bull. Anyway, like I said, not so much with the scary movies.

So needless to say, I didn't go see Orphan. Editor's Note: I also have some residual fear of little doll-like children left over from when Child's Play came out when I was in first grade. I had a My Buddy Doll. What can I say?

Being a movie guy; even if I don't see a movie, I like to know as much as I can about it. So I was stoked when I discovered that wikipedia provides some pretty in depth synopses of movies. Editor's Note: Yes. I had to look up the plural form of synopsis. So, since I wasn't going to see Orphan, I looked it up.

After reading the summary of its plot, my suspicions were confirmed. This was definitely a movie that would have freaked me out. I was very proud of myself for not spending money on seeing something that would have, no doubt, left me scared of all of my friends' little girls. So I went to bed last night without a care in the world...

AND HAD NIGHTMARES ABOUT THE LITTLE GIRL FROM ORPHAN ALL NIGHT LONG!!!

That's right. Apparently reading about this movie (as well as seeing commercials) was enough to cause me to have terrible dreams about a murderous little turn-of-the-century dressing girl coming after me.

From now on, I'm only going to read about Spider-man before bed. Unless that makes me dream that I'm in Spider-man 3. Man I hated that movie...

Haha! I am so sorry that Orphan gave you nightmares. I wonder, if you had seen it, would you have had nightmares. We will never know.

I guess different things scare different people, but I didn't think it was scary. Kind of silly. I liked it-but kind of silly.
