“It made me jump about 50 times!” ~ Nathan Bailey, Ginger Ninja and epic jumper.
“I wanted to be scared…I wasn’t. One star.” ~ Bryony Page, amateur speed artist.
The last scary movie I watched was The Descent during my first Halloween at University. I screamed, I cried, and I was left traumatised. I thought watching a horror film at the cinema would be a good challenge for me, getting out of my comfort zone, and leave me with a memory of a dreadful experience. It did, but in a way I wasn’t expecting. I was BORED! Although this horrific film made me jump at times, it was predictable and dull. I even found it amusing, because it was so terrible! Maybe I just naturally distanced myself from the evil and sinister tone of the film, as a subconscious way to protect myself from feeling scared. Or maybe it just wasn’t very scary. But either way, I wasn’t scared, nor was I impressed.
The boys, on the other hand, were complete wimps! Covering their eyes with their hands, or hiding behind the chair! I got hit by Nathan about fifty times, every time he jumped out of his seat from being scared!
I probably won’t go watch a scary or horror movie for a while, they aren’t for me. I am either bored or scared to my bones. Both emotions I don’t enjoy!
