My exposure to horror was not as young as MisterBixby led you to believe. I, too, had to do the “close your eyes” thing for all things scary/overtly sexual. I was in high school before I took witness to the rotting meat scene in Poltergeist. Not because I still kept my eyes closed, but because I never knew how good the movie really was – so I never viewed it again. Now I know. :)
Here is when I really got into horror movies: When my sister and I were old enough to stay home alone while my parents went on dates. Our “tradition” was a trip to the video store for 2 or 3 movies of our choosing and a pizza ordered in. It didn’t take too long before we started to hit up the horror movie section – then we were hooked! Often times, those were the only ones we chose.
Fast forward about 20 years… Horror movies are my fave, and seldom do they scare me.
I will one day share these with my kids, if they so chose. But not yet. Not for a few more years.
