5. Slam Donahue
I got into the horror movie game late. I’d watch through my fingers, telling/shrieking at my brother to switch off Jason, Freddy, Michael, Candy Man, whoever. So, excuse my plebeian tastes as this is more a list of which movies terrified me and not a list of the best gore fantasy.
Male rape. (Ed.—He’s referring to this.)
I can’t stand to look at Stephen King now without shuddering a bit. When I was a child, hearing the name alone would send me shivering up into my room and under the blankets. This film made me scared of clowns, spiders and John Ritter (RIP) all in one go.
3. Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday
This was one of those movies that somehow existed on a random VHS at my parent’s house for as long as I can remember. Taped off HBO, it had the old Home Box Office bumpers intact, I would blind fast forward through it since inexplicably Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure was the second film on the tape. I’d push the dusty tape in and hit fast forward and look away with all my might. Once, misjudging the time, I hit play looked back and a guy was eating Jason’s black beating heart.
4. Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure
This was my reward for blind firing through Jason. But only the first hour, then Pee-Wee has to deal with Francis, evil clowns, a demon/ghost truck driver, that shitty older brother from The Wonder Years, and I believe a rodeo somewhere in there—I was already on to playing Sega Genesis at this point.
Once when I had to flu in middle school, I woke up from my fever in the middle of Cube playing on the television. Delirious, I thought I imagined it and told everyone of my insane dream. Shifting rooms, people being impaled, terrible dialogue, all things my virus-fighting brain might hallucinate. Years later, I almost had an existential breakdown when I saw Cube 2: Hypercube on the shelf at Blockbuster Video. How did they make a sequel to my dream?
