I am SOOOOOOOOOOO excited to be traveling this weekend to see some family and friends! I will get to see my awesome mom, and my (Best-Man, 1999) Derek. I will also be celebrating my in-laws 40th anniversary. So, what a great weekend!
I have to admit though, one of the most exciting parts for me is going with my wife and friends to some Illinois haunted houses!! I love being scared (*when it isn’t REAL) and I love spending time with my friends. So I am just totally psyched! I wish my friend John could make it, but I will make him come NEXT TIME!!
Anyway, this post is not about my trip. It is about being scared. And I saw a movie on Tuesday that totally freaked me out!
My wife and I went to see Paranormal Activity, the SUPER-HYPED low budget horror film that has been causing people to lose sleep at night. We also saw Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs; the kid’s flick.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs FREAKED ME OUT!
Paranormal Activity was umm… Baby-Diapie-Smell-Like-Poopy! It stunk bad. I have never been so disappointed in a movie in my life. I was really hoping to get a good scare but ended up being something I rarely ever am in a movie – BORED! This movie is all hype, no bite. I think some teens convinced each-other this was real or something (ala Blair Witch) but… The hour and a half running time of this movie felt like 3 hours! I was never once held in much suspense nor was I worried for the main characters. I was just bored. I give this an IMDB rating of 2.3 – AWEFUL!
Now… I have weird food phobia. I freak out at the thought of food on skin. Yes, I know — weird. But when gobs of eggs, meatballs, and nacho sauce (yes, a guy was BATHING IN IT!) fall from the sky – YAAAHHH!!! This was a scary, scary, scary and disturbing movie. I do NOT want to go to the ketchup-and-mustard haunted house!!!!!
So Cloudy = Cute for Kids — Scary for Food Phobics
Activity = You be Better Off Playing Monopoly VS. Yourself
