    Ok The Exorcist movie scares the **** out of me. I don't mean it at one point scared the **** out of me, I mean it has and still does scare the living bejesus out of me. Like phobia scare. I remember my father letting me watch it with him while staying home sick from school. Imagine a highly conditionable 7-8 year old watching a girl around his age posessed by the devil. Now imagine how scared he must be when, after watching her spew pea soup, he himself had to vomit. I seriously thought I was possessed. Now I'm 20 years old and I know better, but through psychological conditioning, I'm still effected by it.
    Now I can't even look at clips of the movie, pictures from the movie, posters or box art of the movie or even a certain Mod's avatar without getting an attack of anxiety. I Have to cover up Odie's avatar whenever I read through these forums.
    So...anyone else been effected negatively by psychological conditioning?

    That movie is week.

    Sorry I have been programed by my brother to feel nothing.
     
  3. "The Ring" scares me. But, before you make fun of me, it isn't really the movie that scares me, it's that damn little girl. I don't like ghostly children, so much more terror, :)

  7. Good call,
    Freaky story that coincides with this too....i just finnished watching the movie for the first time on my computer. And not even 5 mins after it was done there must have been a powersurge in my building cause it turned my tv on.
    I didnt get much sleep that night...talk about letting your imagination run away.

    BTW, wasnt Exorcist based on a true story? Maybe someone can ring in some facts to that one?

    The Exorcist is one of my favorite movies of all time! I have a blown-up poster-sized mugshot of dear lil' Regan at her worst... :eek:

    When you really get down and think about how the movie ended it is scary and at the same time very ironic... When you realize the experienced, more pious priest failed (and in a sense the Catholic Church) although he won against the very same demon in the past, (and no, it was not Satan) and when the "Doubting Thomas" Karras (in a sense, the more secularized world) took matters out of the rite and into his own hands, he came up victorious and a martyr and thereby being Christian in the truest sense of the word in the end by giving his life to save that of another. I look at it as we are our own salvation through our actions and not our beliefs regardless of religious denominations. A very powerful and moving film if you can get past the initial shock... Also one of the best horror films period if you can't! ;) :cool:
