When I was a kid, I was afraid of E.T. I also read a lot of Goosebumps books and was afraid of the dark and mirrors- mostly because of the "Bloody
Mary" stories I used to hear. You know the one where she'll come out of the mirror and kill you if you turn out the lights and say "bloody Mary"
three times or something?
Anyways, one night, I was sitting with my parents watching a Nightline special on them debunking some alien autopsy - I must've been eight or so -
and since then, I've had shivers about the Greys. I personally believe its a fear of the unknown, and the stigma attached with alien abductions and
the horrible probing/mutilating stories. They all kinda mesh together. I'm 20 now, and I'd gotten over my fears of the dark and mirrors etc. a long
time ago, but if I'm alone at my computer at night watching a movie like "Communion", then I'd be pretty scared. There's just something about
their eyes that make you feel they're peering through you. Also, its freaky to think about the aliens portrayed in the tv series "Taken", in which
the aliens had mind-control capabilities.
If I saw one in real life though, depending on the circumstances, I'd probably feel very fortunate to have made contact, even though the fear of
experiencing something new for the first time would still be there.
p.s. If you haven't seen "Communion", check it out. It's crazy
