Most of you know I love sci-fi Saturdays. I spend the whole day in my jammies, in my chair, watching it. I only move to go to the bathroom or fix something to eat. It's my day. Sometimes I don't even answer the phone. The name of whoever is calling shows up on the TV so if it's no one I want to talk to I just let it ring.
I've noticed that on most sci-fi days there will be a theme. One Saturday it's Stephen King all day, then there will be a Saturday with nothing but movies on about world disasters like hurricanes, tornado and mega waves. Then vampires, werewolves...well, you get the idea. If you watch it then you know what I mean.
Yesterday was filled with the kind of movies I don't like, but can't take my eyes off. They truly frighten me. I can take the monsters, space movies, killer dolls and just about anything. But movies like Rest Stop and Joy Ride are very scary to me. It's just one bad serial killer who terrorizes, stalks, and tortures his victims before he kills them in horrible ways.
I think those movies affect me so strongly because it's something that could really happen. And unfortunately does. Except for the end, when you realize the bad guy didn't burn to death when his truck goes over the cliff, and he's still alive to start terrorizing people all over again.
The Exorcist is the one movie today that I still can't watch. I watched it once in the theater with a friend when it first came out, but never again!
