I am opposed to scary movies about vampires

    It's not my fault that I'm not going to be able to sleep at all, this weekend. I blame the television for making me watch From dusk to dawn at 3 A.M. Maybe I should lawsuit something.

    That movie isn't scary at all man. OTOH, very little scares me anymore.

    Very bad movie, yes (I was disappointed with Quentin Tarantino for having anything to do with it, but then the movie was directed by Robert Rodriguez, IIRC).

    Something rather weird and spooky did happen when I was watching the movie though. This was late evening (of course), I was watching the movie with my dad. At the pivotal scene when they all reveal themselves to be vampires, a bat comes flying in from outside the house, zooms in on the lamp right next to the TV (where the movie's playing) and roosts upside down. :surprised:

    This had never happened before (or since). So it was exceedingly weird that a bat should choose the moment when we were watching a vampire movie (and the vamp transformation was taking place on screen) to grace us with its presence.

    Anyway, my dad and I laughed about it, I shooed it away, chased it around the house for a while until it flew back through the doorway I opened for it.

    Beat that for strange occurences during movies. :biggrin:

    What about a classic like Nosferatu with Max Schreck in it?
    Go watch it.

    I think it's impossible to find the old Nosferatu anywhere

    Rach (is that short for Rachmaninov ?)

    I recommend the Blade movies. They are just not too scary but still somehow entertaining. There are some great fighting sequences and the opening scene (with the music as well) of the first Blade movie is very spectacular (but not in a scary way).

    These are ideal movies for softies like yourself :)
    If you wanna explore something more interesting, i can recommend some other titles but i will PM them to you. Otherwise, people will start thinking that i am promoting violent movies again :rofl:

    Can you imagine ????

    Great stuff indeed. I also like the modern adaptation with Malkovich and Dafoe.

    Blade is the kind of movie you only watch once, because you got suckered into buying a movie ticket.

    Let's keep an open mind about this, ok
    Yes, let's do that


    Watching/admiring Blade is a perfect therapy to overcome the fears and weaknesses of the OP.
