OPINION: Horror movies terrify me. So why do I watch them?
WHY do I watch horror movies?
I can't really answer that question.
Because when I'm home alone after I just watched something terrifying and every noise in the house sounds like a murderer is breaking in, it doesn't seem like a great idea.
A friend and I went to see Annabelle: Creation at the cinema the other week.
She's one of those people who doesn't get scared.
She was laughing at me while I jumped, flinched and looked away through the whole movie.
I also gripped her hand like someone in labour.
Actually I should get a refund because I reckon I spent more time with my eyes hidden than actually watching.
Now I want to go and see It, the movie created from Stephen King's classic novel that will ensure you never look at clowns the same way again.
But I don't know if my friend is ready for another trip to the cinema with me after our last trip.
I think her hand needs to recover first.
And I need to make sure someone is at home with me before I decide to turn on a horror movie to get my next adrenaline rush.
