I believe it's very hard for some people to differentiate movies from reality, that old saying, "seeing is believing, the rest is up to you." Take
the movie Jaws, there were people who were afraid to go in the water at the beach, or go into the ocean, just because somewhere in the back of their
minds, the looming danger of a possible shark attack. Just because people seen a movie about it, that it could happen to them.
Even the exorcist, I believe I heard somewhere, that to even get into the church after this movie premiered people needed a ticket, they were that
scared, and they sought the church for some kind of comfort, spiritually or otherwise.
I basically grew up on horror movies, from around the age of five I had probably seen every horror movie that was out, Freddie, Jason, anything with
zombies, I seen it all and internalized it. But, as I grew older I realized that it was just fake, not real, it can't hurt me. The silly thing is,
that even now, I will have some kind of weird feeling something is watching me when I sleep, or is under my bed. It does irk me at times, and I
realized some time ago that it pretty much screwed with my perception and what I thought was reality.
