President Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” referring to the mood of the country in 1933. Today we sometimes are fearful of life – without work, without money, without medicine, without love and care, without friends…. We cope with these fears (some days better than others) routinely and rationally.
But never fear—the Halloween season is upon us and we are encouraged to fear with complete abandon for a change!
Watching a classic or contemporary horror movie and scaring yourself silly (for 90 minutes or so) is like a safety valve. We screech, let off some “fear steam,” and feel better.
So the library wants to know what movies scare you most? What’s your #1 all time scariest, creepiest favorite movie and a close runner up if you have one?
For me the answer is: #1—“Carrie,” runner up—“Woman in Black.” Please post your responses!
