Midweek Movie Mouth-Off: What was the first scary movie you saw?

1 min read


Welcome to October, the month of scary movies! I’ve decided that, seeing as I’ve been given free reign over the Midweek Movie Mouth-Off (muahahaha!), we’re going to have a month of discussing all things Halloween. To start off, let’s talk about the first scary movie you ever saw.

Now, depending on how old you were, the first scary movie you saw might not have been a scary movie at all. That was the case for me, with Ghostbusters II. I can’t remember how old I was when I watched it, but considering it came out in 1989 I was probably only about 4. From the scene with the baby carriage to the freaky painting, that Ghostbusters II legitimately scared the hell out of me. As an adult I can see that it wasn’t that bad, but for an impressionable child? I was afraid of the dark for years!

So what was your first scary movie experience? And (make me feel better about myself here, please) how long did you need to have your night-light on for afterwards?
