Words like these will get me every time.
(In fact Del has just reminded me that Hilary and I were so terrified afterwards that he couldn't control us in the car on the way home and he got stopped by the police - ah, selective memory).
It freaked my poor teenaged head out. To think that things like this actually happened. No, they did - it said it was based on actual events. And following this, I couldn't ever look at the time 3:15 without wanting to barf with fear - let alone actually go to the loo at this time in the morning - no matter how painful. And there was no reassuring Google back then to look up whether the whole thing *really was* based on actual events or not. If I'd believed it might have been purely for entertainment and shock value then I'd have been much less worried about things that went bump in the night as I grew up.
'Blair Witch' had the hype of the millennium. Didn't it, though? Actual footage and all that jazz? Who wasn't desperately looking forward to going to see this, whatever they believed? And this time it wasn't just 'based on actual events' it was based on 'found footage' as well. But for me, it turned out to be a bit of a "meh" film (probably as I'd only just tripped out of an Aberdeen bar at three in the afternoon carrying rather more Vodka in my veins than was entirely justifiable for that time of day so my levels of gullibility were, shall we say.... fuzzy to say the least). And all that camera shake brought my hangover on rather suddenly, so...a pile of twigs. That was the scariest part? Seriously? Although my partner at the time said the most unbelievable part was the fact we'd swapped cash to watch this shite. True enough.
Now triple it. I'm not kidding. There's a scene that will have you gasping with shock. Seriously. Spewing, twisting heads and mothers sucking cocks in hell? Pah!
And it's based on actual events. Not it is - it says so.
(I'm really looking forward to our evening with 'Paranormal Activity' tonight - compared with this, it'll be like watching 'Pinocchio' and that was scary enough. Right?)
