    I do! It was 1976 and my first year of university. Ididn’t like scary movies much – in high school the TV show night gallery used to scare me! – but a gang wanted to go see Carrie – so I went along. Well the whole thing scared me but that scene near the end where (spoiler alert!) her hand shoots out of the ground…well…there was a lot of screaming!! I think I have never watched the whole movie since then….

    My first (and last) scary movie was Carrie, too! Aaagh…the hand! That movie taught me that I don’t need to watch things that scare me rigid. I would much rather watch something that makes me laugh. Real life is suspenseful enough for me!

    Oh, this is an easy one for me. I was about…hmmm…10 and I went to a friends sleep-over birthday party. She had 3 horror movies for us for the night – Friday the 13th, the Freddy Kruger one, gosh I can’t even remember the 3rd now…maybe it was poltergeist? I sat through them but in the middle of the night I couldn’t even sleep in the same room as the TV – I went upstairs into the living room and was physically sick because I was so scared. I proceeded to stay that way for 3 days and couldn’t sleep in my own room for months after. To this day I still hate horror movies, but will sit through one each Halloween season with my husband – as long as I know that the movie resolves itself in the end (still can’t do cliffhanger ones). On a side note – I went back and watched the old ones as an adult and honestly they made me laugh more then they frightened me. PS – my girlfriend who’s party I watch them at still feels terrible to this day for causing me so much trauma. 🙂

    This is so long ago I can’t even remember how old I was … but it was a dracula movie, in black and white, and at the end when the stake was driven through his heart … he decomposed and dried up and blew away … aaaaagggghhhhh!
