MOVIE NIGHTMARES

-
Movie Monsters Over the last year or so, me and my better half have gotten ourselves into a conventionally weird ritual. Every day, after work, we'd both rush home and follow a pretty regular routine. We'd wash, we'd change, we'd cook, and we'd have something to eat, before spending a good couple of hours either watching TV or catching up with a friend or relative on the phone / internet. After that, we'd take it upon ourselves to then jump into bed and get real nasty.


Walking Dead Memorabilia


Oi! Cut that out. I don't mean nasty as in... uhhh... you know, Jiggy-Jiggy Boom-Boom! What I actually mean by this, is that we'd laze around in bed and watch a video nasty! Like a scary movie or any other film from the horror genre, just something that will scare us witless for the next few hours prior to popping off to sleep.

We generally prefer watching a real classy horror film, such as Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining' or Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho'. Plus we don't mind getting into something a little bit more gruesome as well, like Wes Craven's 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' or William Friedkin's 'The Exorcist'. That said, however, quite recently our fixation on watching horror movies has taken a pretty peculiar turn for the worst.

Love TV
Two weeks ago, more or less, we both found ourselves under the duvet and watching a frightening flick we've seen many times before: John Carpenter's 1978 classic, 'Halloween'. While we were watching it, though, for some bizarre reason we started to recite the dialogue coming out of the actors mouths. Neither of us could understand why we were doing this or what type of elemental forces were compelling us to do it in the first place. All we knew for certain is that we felt we had to vocalize these scenes to the best of our ability.

Problem was, we couldn't act and we couldn't always remember what was being said, even though it was just spoken a few seconds earlier. Plus, to make matters even worse, whenever we did try to hide our mistakes, either by mumbling our lines or pretending to sneeze or cough, somehow, the movie Gods could tell what we were up to and shot us with a bolt of electricity, streaming out from the TV.

Scary Movies
So, to stop this from happening, we both decided to give up watching movies in bed until this strange phenomenon would go away. But alas, we couldn't do it. We couldn't stop watching movies in bed no matter how hard we tried. Heck, one evening I even disconnected the electricity from our apartment just so we wouldn't be tempted. It didn't work though. Nothing worked. Not even going out to visit friends, having a meal at our local curry house, or, dare I say it, sitting down and reading a good book. Whatever we tried to do to stop being zapped didn't come close to being successful. That is, until a few hours ago when I thankfully figured out what was going on. 

We were being controlled by the media, plain and simple, and like the rest of the world we had no other choice but to do what our Dark Masters told us. Well, it was either that, or the fact that we ate too much cheese before going to sleep. Personally, I'm betting on the Dark Masters angle, where as my better half thinks its the cheese. What do you think it is? Check out the following infographic by www.mattressonline.co.uk and let me know, okay? Many thanks.
