Show of hands, who reading this loooves horror flicks?

Yeah, no, that’s a hard pass from me. Once upon a time I tried, but they are just way too intense. Yes, I’m a scary movie scaredy cat. The few I did watch scarred me for life.

Horror movies have that effect on people. A recent survey conducted by OnePoll found that fifty-two percent of American’s surveyed say the thing that frightened them from having watched a scary flick back in the day has the same effect on them today.

So, what don't or won't you do anymore because of a scary movie you watched?

Below is a sampling of responses from fellow traumatized ‘fraidy cats when we posed the question on Mike & Tricia Mornings.
