Happy October! As we continue with the paranormal theme, I want to touch on horror movies. Yes! I love a good horror movie, and enjoy the intense feeling of suspense and fear. For more on this, you can read my prior blog post, Scary Monsters: https://wordpress.com/post/debhead.home.blog/334
Recently, I attempted to watch a movie advertised on Netflix entitled “Midsommar”. I had no idea it was a horror movie, but as soon as I started watching it (on a sunny summer day), I had an impending feeling of doom. It was DARK my friends. It was like coming upon a car accident, and being unable to look away.
Now, you may have noticed I said, “attempted” to watch. This is because midway through the film, I was so distraught that I had to stop watching it. I can’t describe the feeling of horror at that point in the movie. It was more of utter disgust really. This is a highly acclaimed film, and I can see that point. Any movie that makes you stop watching it…..think about it constantly…..and then resume watching it to find out what happens has to be a great film. And that is exactly what I did; I resumed watching a couple days later.
I was afraid to see what would happen next. However, after finishing the entire thing, I have to say that it was the absolute WEIRDEST movie I have ever seen. After you see some things, they can never be erased. I’m not sure if I was better off watching it, or never watching it! Let’s just say the entire thing propelled you into another world, made you identify with the strange characters, and gave you the CREEPS for sure.
If you have time, and want to scar your brain forever, then I suggest watching Midsommar. Please drop a line to let me know what you think of it. Happy haunting! Cheers, Deb
