I have done some crazy shit because I was scared. These are probably the top three.
Silence of the Lambs-Slept 3 nights in the closet with my cat
Blair Witch Project- Laid awake all night even tho Larry was right next to me.
Exorcist - Went all through my house praying , annointed the doorways ( I didnt know how it worked for holy oil so so I just prayed over some lemon Oil furniture polish and used it on the entire doorway)
But heres the deal. I really am going to blame my psychological damage on my cousins. See I didnt have any older brothers or sisters so I thought the cousins were the coolest people on the planet when I was 7 and loved being with them .
My Mama took me on a trip to my Old Grannys house out in the country. My older cousins were there and in charge of taking care of me. Well after a full day of running wild through old barns, making mudpies, hiking through creeks and mud and weeds , you know all the fun stuff you do in the country, they checked me for ticks, washed me up real good and sat on the front porch with me.
They started telling scary stories. After about 5 minutes I said I dont want to hear this I want to go in, my cousin took me to the back screened in porch where she said "Now run really fast so the under the bed monster cant get you, I'll keep watch!" I ran and jumped like a acrobat in the Cirque De Soliel and landed on that big high old fashioned bed. She turned out the light and went to the living room.
I'd been asleep for about an hour when all of a sudden I heard the most god awful noise and there was a monster outside clawing the screens trying to get in! First it was at the end of the porch, then the door, then the window by the bed. Well I screamed like a banshee. I screamed loud enough you could hear me across the county I was so scared I thought I'd pee the bed, and I couldnt escape because of the under the bed monster. There was a stampede of people running, first in was my mama she had the broom, next was my Old granny who was carrying her cane like a sword and flipped on the light , and then all the cousins came running in hands over thier mouths eyes wide, guilty looks on thier faces. My Granny said "What is it, what happened?" I managed to sob out about the monster she turned on the outside light and then went out the back door. That really scared me (as my Aunt Glenda likes to say the pee waddlin cush outta me) After a few seconds she came back in carrying "THE MONSTER". It had giant glowing green eyes, long sharp talons, a mouth full of teeth, and was purring up a storm. It was a huge long haired marmalade cat, my Aunts cat Taffy, who when she saw me in there, wanted me to let her in so she was crying and hanging off the screen. My granny plopped that cat on the bed and told me she would keep away any monsters, kissed me and turned out the light. I slept with that cat against me all night. I guess I figured if the under the bed monster came we would have a better chance two agsinst one:)
