Monday Movie Meme
This week's theme: FEAR
Share on your blog movies that caused you to hide under the covers and then link back here at The Bumbles.
Psycho. I've seen it so many times that I know exactly when the two big shock/horror scenes are coming (the shower scene, of course, and when the detective meets his demise). I also know that as we creep toward the end, when we finally meet Mom, I won't be frightened at all. And yet, when those two big shock/horror scenes come, I'm still scared pissless. I guess that's what makes Hitch the master.
Dressed to Kill. Brian de Palma's homage to Psycho takes the crucial elements, updates them, and also scares me pissless.
I almost included March of the Penguins, because I was so upset when that first, pudgy penguin died that I was on the edge of my seat for the whole rest of the movie, wondering which other cute tuxedo'd bird would get it next. Remember that shocking scene in the water, and how one of the mamas didn't make it back to feed her baby? Can you see why I'm in therapy?
