Most overrated Horror movie?I don't know... no accountin' fer taste.
What movie scared you the most?As a young pup, I was born and raised in the Roman Catholic church. So when The Exorcist came out, it was not really considered fiction. And to top it off urban legend around St. Louis where I grew up held, that the kid the story was based on was locked up for a time in the attic of the Catholic hospital right around the corner from where I ran.
After seeing the movie I decided to read the book. Well one night after lights out, I was telling my little brother all about the movie and the book. We shared a room. My bed was under the window that sported one of those old fashioned roll up shades. You know the ones that are notorious for having a spring break and whip up and slap around making that loud flopping sound.
Anyway, one night I was telling my little brother about the Exorcist story, the devil and demons and how stuff in the little possessed girl's room was moving and flying around all by itself.
We laughed and joked nervously about how that was a bunch of bull when suddenly the shade directly over my head slowly went up... a stopped half way. Like some invisible hand decided it wanted me to see the moon. GULP!
We said good nights. I pulled the blankets up over my head and did not sleep a wink that night.
Who is the biggest celebrity you have ever met?I don't bother them people. Don't like to scare people unless they come lookin' to be scared.
