|"They're here." Poltergeist (1982)|
|The nameplate on Bowman Body's casket.|
|Scary stuff, right?|
|The monster challenging the world, one closet door at a time.|
|Easily one of the best movie scares ever. Jaws (1975)|
I've been thinking about all of these special movies because we old people always tend to wax nostalgic on birthdays. I've also been thinking of them because I anxiously await the day I get to introduce my little baby Gunnar to genre movies. Adrienne says I have to ease him into it because she doesn't want to be left to contend with the nightmares. I envy Gunnar. If only something as innocent as The Blob could still breed nightmares for me . . . I'll get to see everything old become new again through Gunnar's eyes, though, and that's going to be pretty freakin' awesome.
What movies gave you your first nightmares as a child?
