Day 17- A Horrifyingly Horrible Horror Flick That You Are A Closeted Fan Of?
I must admit to this one, I am a fan of The Blair Witch Project. As lame and stupid as the movie is, it terrifies me every time and makes me wonder why I love it as much as I do. Something about the movie always resonated with me in a way I’m not sure how to put? I’m seriously questioning my reasoning sometimes.
When I was in elementary specifically around 4th-5th grade, after I finally saw the movie when I would wait for the bus I would purposely find sticks and make the stick figure pattern on the ground. So there would be like 2-3 of them lying around and I’d form up rock piles. I’d make sure they were big enough to be noticeable by the kids on the bus and would only do it around October. I was a strange kid to say the least. I just really loved horror films as lame as they may have been. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I know and love classics as well.
One of my favorites is The Exorcist. I read the book before I watched the movie and don’t shame me, yes, the book was better. Still love Linda Blair’s performance in the movie and give her props for having to endure that style of acting at such a young age. Ironic her last name is Blair, don’t ya think?
