So, I'm not really a huge horror fan. I hate torture-porn flicks, and if I'm going to watch gore, it's got to have a decent story behind it. However, I do have a soft spot for zombie/vampire flicks. Don't ask me why, I just do. So I loved 28 Days Later (and its sequel). And I've been on the hunt for another good zombie flick for a while now. Several months ago, I heard of this Spanish movie called [Rec], which had been released last year everywhere except the US. I also heard it was so good, American studios were working on a remake which would probably be released before the original version found its way into the US. So, being the curious person I am, I tried to get my hands on a copy. And I found an online version (which I will promptly delete, downloading police! I promise!). And I watched it earlier today. With the lights on. And two pugs playing in my lap. And, it started off pretty good - not really scary, but exciting nonetheless. But then the last 15 minutes of the film rolled around.
Um, yeah. Did I feel like huddling into a little ball and shrieking, "Mommy!"
Did I find myself surprised at how quickly I went from, "Hm, interesting flick." to "OMG, I'm utterly terrified! I can't watch! Must...shut...my...eyes!"
Did I turn off the movie 10 minutes before it ended because I just couldn't take it anymore?
Have I ever done that with any horror movie EVER?
Do I have the balls to turn it back on and finish the last ten minutes?
HELL NO. Absolutely not. In fact, I'm deleting it this very minute because I absolutely refuse to put myself through that again.
Did I email my cousin and tell her to watch it because she loves horror movies and nothing fazes her?
Do I secretly hope this will make her poop her pants in fear?
I know. I'm evil.
