I’m weird. I like them but I don’t like the anxiety they put me through. The anticipation of the scary moment is more torturous than the scary moment itself. The “Halloween” music frightened me as a child. The fact that people always split up frustrated me. Every time I would wonder to myself, “Why Sway!?!?” In real life whenever I am in less than ideal situations I always cling to people. If I am with strangers we become fast friends right away. Why couldn’t they do the same?
One of the stipulations that I have when watching horror films by myself is that it has to be during the daytime with all the lights in the room on. I don’t want to set the mood. That’s the only way I was able to watch “The Ring.” (That little girl was not going to get me).
I have a special place in my heart for comedic horror films like The Leprechaun series. That little man tickles my funny bone. Particularly “Leprechaun in the Hood” I would have to say that movie is sheer genius. Another that I loved growing up was Stephen Kings “IT.” As a child I had to get out of the bathtub before all the water drained. The movie messed with my mind a tad bit. A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of filming a trailer with the director of “IT” Tommy Lee Wallace. I never imagined myself in a horror film, but it was a super fun experience to play in that world. The story is about the ghost of a racist sheriff who haunts a University through a rediscovered mask. Ooohh and I may or may not get my head chopped off. Below is the trailer.
