I’ve compiled a list of places and objects that are a no go zone for me thanks to the many horror films I’ve watched over the years. Below is my personal list of things that terrify me and feel free to leave your responses as I’m sure there are many more.
St Bernard Dog
I always tread carefully near St Bernard dogs thanks to Stephen Kings Cujo. It has to be the most terrifying dog of all horror films.
Remember the scene in ‘Children of the Corn’ when the stalks of corn suddenly part way for our entrance into the corn field? Absolutely no way will you find me travelling near a corn field.
This one will probably make you laugh. Ever since watching ‘Trucks’ again a Stephen King film, I hate to cross the road near a parked truck at night that is pure black inside the windows in case it suddenly starts up and mows me down. Also thinking about it, if you’ve watched this film, do you remember the lawn mower coming to life?
Windows at Night
Ever since Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot, I’ve not been able to sit in a room at night with the curtains/blinds open just in case a mist forms and something floats up to the window with yellow eyes and starts dragging their long fingernails down it.
Shiny Silver Balls
Although they don’t scare me that much, I do imagine sharp blades to suddenly pop out before the balls float in the air and chase me and land smack bang in the middle of my forehead. Thanks Phantasm! That tall undertaker guy walking down the street is scary as Hell.
When you’re sat at the television and suddenly there’s a problem with the aerial and the screen goes all white and fuzzy, I’m scared as Hell that spirits are on their way to get me thanks to Poltergeist.
