A midweek dose of WTF
Apparently not a joke. But also a complete joke. Discuss.
Favorite really scary movies. I'm writing this because I just saw The Descent. Holy crap, that movie scared me way more than I thought it would! Partly because it was cold in my apartment but mainly because my nerves were such tatters by the end of it, my hand was literally shaking as I pulled the DVD out of the drive! Haven't been that scared by a film in a very long while. Good times!
For those scary movie fans out there, what films have given you a really good and genuine fright?
