This was the first scary movie I ever saw in the theater. I don’t know if this was supposed to make us afraid of televisions or not. But since this came out around the same time that cable television arrived in our area, there was no chance of me being afraid of the television set!

What was your first scary/horror movie that you saw in the theater?

    1. That’s a good one! I think I saw that one in the theater too. I haven’t been to a horror movie in years. But, I do remember that the most fun with horror movies is when you either go to the theater with a bunch of friends, or watch it on TV with a bunch of friends. It’s a totally different experience than just watching it by yourself or with 1 or 2 other people.

  1. I don’t remember exactly what I saw in the big screen….. I think The Ring. I was in Grade 6 or Middle school, buut it scared the heck out of me.

      1. yep, that was the one. I saw the Japanese original. Oh, and wait…….. THE GRUDGE ! The japanese one is definitely more scary ! ! That’s the one with a cursed house. Anyone who enters the house is doomed to die.

        1. I haven’t seen that one either. I did hear that The Grudge was good too. I haven’t seen any of the Saw movies either. I hear that they’ve been going more and more over the top with each one though.
