Movies That Will Scare the Snot Out of You-Or Just Kind of Startle You
'Tis the season for scary movies, candy corns! I love fright flicks. The problem is I'm the weenie who watches the movie through her fingers while uttering a constant refrain of "What's happening now?" True horror fans hate my kind, but everyone has their own threshold for cinematically-induced terror. The worst is when you start a movie, thinking it might get your heart racing a little bit, and end the movie curled in the fetal position in the back of your closet. I like to know what I'm in for. So, for the good of everyone involved, I've ranked these horror movies from paralyzingly terrifying to mildly disconcerting.
These movies will cause you to eject any and all ejectable material from your body (see: screams, pee, contents of bowels). If you require psychological counseling after seeing them, don't say you haven't been warned.
These movies will change the way you behave. For example, you will no longer answer your front door or sleep with the lights off.
These movies may kind of startle you if you're easily startled. They may also gross you out, but not so bad you can't eat your popcorn and Hot Tamales.
