Admit it, youíre scared of something. Maybe you fear your next report card, or maybe you only freak in the middle of the night when the floors creaks. But some of us are just more scared than others. To use a phrase from elementary school, are you a scaredy-cat?1. Youíre sitting at a movie with friends, including your crush. You hear the scary music start to play and KNOW something is about to jump out on screen. YouÖ
a. Hide your eyes and just hope you donít wet your pants this time. This stuff always freaks you out.
b. Hide your eyes on your crushís shoulder. Itís more flirty than frightened, but it does keep you from jumping like a goofball.
c. Sigh. The movie will have to do more than this to freak you out.
2. Your friends want to go to one of the haunted houses or fields in your area. YouÖ3. The image that freaks you out the most isÖ
a. Refuse. No sense in having nightmares for the next month.
b. Agree. It was your idea after all. This stuff is kind of freaky, but fun!
c. Agree, but only because you want to comment on how lame everything is.
a. Anything with blood.
b. The weird girl climbing out of the TV in The Ring or the girlís head spinning in The Exorcist.
c. The ending of Blair Witch Project, but only until you found out it wasnít real. Then it was as boring as everything else.
4. You watch a horror movie like Saw or The Haunting of Emily Rose, and then youÖ
a. Feel relieved you didnít actually watch it. You snuck out in the first five minutes because you canít handle movies like that.
b. Watch a comedy to try and erase the scenes from your head before you go to bed to help avoid nightmares or having to think about those images.
c. Get online to see if that kind of stuff really happens. It would be cool if it were real.
If you answered:
Mostly Aís, youíre a scaredy-cat alright! But thatís okay, you probably skip most of the movies that keep the rest of us slightly deranged this time of year. If scary movies freak you out, stand your ground and make everyone see the comedy or chick flick. No sense in making yourself sick just to keep everyone else happy.
Mostly Bís, youíre just scared enough to make scary movies fun! You jump at the right parts and get a little tingle when you walk into a dark room, but know that itís all in good fun Ė at least you hope it is.
Mostly Cís, youíre a pain. Canít you just act like youíre scared so that you donít annoy the rest of us? Sure, you might be tough and nothing can phase you,but isnít that kind of boring? Itís better, at least according to those of us with overzealous imaginations, to let yourself freak out from time to time. It keeps the blood moving and gives you an excuse to snuggle up to the closeset hot guy in the movie theater!
