Carrie! I used to sort of 'leap' from my light switch to my bed because you know... maybe a monster under it lol... until Carrie. And then it was A
BLOODY HAND that might just reach out and grab my ankle OMG.
When I was 10-12, my 4-years-older stepsister had a huge paper route, which I had to help with. We would stay up until around 3:30am on Sundays,
because the papers would be delivered then and we'd have to fold them all and then do the route together with this very big rolling cart by early
morning. This was circa 1974-1976.
They would play these old movies on TV from the 1am-3am time slot, which I suppose were some yesteryear version of horror. Like this one where this
man was a murderer, and his first wife whom he'd divorced, she knew he was, but she still loved him, she always had. They remarried again and then
one time, he brought up her 'snack' - a meat cleaver on a tray. She pleaded with him to not kill her, that she just loved him and wanted to be with
him, but he did. And then she was there as a ghost and everyone could see and talk to her -- except him, lol. There was another where this guy would
kill young women and then pose them in various model outfits in a big empty walk-in freezer. Well you get the idea. So we would always watch some
slightly terrifying movie on the TV like that, and then at like 3:30 we'd go out, a 10-12 and 14-16 year old, in the pitch black, and fold
So one day, we watch this movie I can't recall but it involved the loss of heads, and we went out to fold the papers, only to read the large headline
story about how a local woman had been murdered and oh by the way, they found just-her-head in a ditch right near where we lived.
We folded and delivered papers faster that morning than ever in our lives.
I don't watch horror movies but I did watch part of Hellraiser as a teen, which I regretted!
