Candice: I’m off to the cinema on Thursday night to see the Quiet Ones. Though having just watched the trailer I think I’ve changed my mind! Why am I going to see it you ask, well I’m in it! Somewhere in there is a piece about Druids, and I am one of them. Though I doubt you’ll be able to see me as I had cloak and big hood.
The funny thing is I like horror books. I used to devour Stephen King and James Herbert when I was growing up. But I can’t stand horror films. I think when I read it, even though my imagination runs wild with what is happening in the book, I can turn it off. With a film its too real and graphic, meaning I can’t escape it.
I can distinctly remember watching some of the Friday the 13th films as a teenager, lights off, boys and girls on different sides of the room trying not to act scared or be the first to jump. Off course it was a perfect opportunity for one of the boys to sneak up on a girl they liked, scare her and then give her a hug afterwards. The next thing you know they’d be snogging!
I have actually written some good horror style short stories funnily enough, there are some on this blog if you look, but I dont think I’d write a whole book. Well if they made a film of it, I wouldn’t be able to watch.
So wish me luck on Thursday and hope I don’t have nightmares!
