They Are All Pennywise to Me

I am a fan of many gruesome and scary things, but I cannot abide a clown! I've read Cujo but dogs don't scare me. I read books on serial killers that would make your skin crawl but you don't see me checking the closets or behind the shower curtain. But once I saw Stephen King's "IT" with Pennywise the Evil Killer Clown, it was like something boiled up out of my subconscious. I felt like I always knew clowns were evil but here was the proof. Thank heavens my parents never tried to hire a clown for my birthday parties, I would've run screaming.

Yeah, that movie Just no.<br />
I told my friend, "I am NOT watching that movie...I am terrified of clowns." But she made me watch it anyway. URGHHHH.

Nightshade, I too read gruesome books and watch a few horror movies. I love a good serial killer book. Books on vampires-so forth-you get the picture. The book which scared the living s t out of me was "Salem's Lot" by Stephen King. The movie was creepy, but not like the book. I had never seen movies much when I was a kid. My family were not modern-if it's not broke, don't fix it mentality-and I saw "Night of the Living Dead", the old one, and I nearly freaked out. I saw it later, and noticed that it was not as frightening as I thought. I liked "Resident Evil" and the following one. They were OK. I liked "Blade", and one other I can't remember the name of, but it had John Woods in it and one of the Baldwins. And, of course there was Quinten Taratino's movie. Had a lot of scares. Liked it. Gotta go. Bye, Callalilly
