I decided to take the little bit of extra time to veg out and watch a movie on Netflix. Nyasha really dislikes scary movies and since I was alone to choose whatever I wanted I got sucked into a movie called Hush.
This "thriller" was about a deaf, mute woman who lived alone in the woods. A man with a crossbow decided to kill her best friend after she stopped by to visit. He then came for the deaf woman. This movie is NOT a thriller. It is a 1 hour and 21 minutes of PURE TERROR.
Nyasha often calls me in the middle of the day for some random bit of information. This week he called to see how to spell Amish for some odd reason.
I often ask Nyasha how to maneuver some ridiculous situation that hopefully would never happen.
Tonight when he got home I had about 15 minutes remaining of stomach wrenching viewing enjoyment. I asked him, "Babe. If a killer were to come to our house, what would I do? I am so unprepared."
|SERIOUSLY. WHAT WOULD I DO? I find a healthy fear of the killer is imperative.|
He looked at me as if this were the most normal of all conversations (for which I love him dearly) and he said, "Nothing, Lucy would protect you."
(Lucy is a 9 pound Jack Russel that is afraid of clouds. I am not even kidding, she is so afraid of rain and thunder that if it is even cloudy she will hide under beds or in closets just to be protected. She in no way makes me feel safe from the killer. Hopefully no killer is reading this because now he will know that the dog's bark is worse than her bite!!!)
I laughed and pressed, "No seriously, what would I do?"
He replied, "I think what might be a better thing to consider is why on earth you insist on watching scary movies and tv shows about killers."
Honestly, I am so attracted to shows like Criminal Minds (which I happen to think is one of the most well written shows of all time, except for the decision to kill of Shemar Moore, but I am a few seasons behind so I haven't gotten there yet.) and movies like this ridiculous "Hush." They cause me great distress while I am watching, but I am so intrigued by watching things about killers.
But now it's bedtime and I have watched a scary movie about the killer and I am too wound up to sleep. Nyasha is right, I may need to reconsider my choices in entertainment.
What is your go to tv show or genre of movie if you are in control of the remote?
