Exorcisms
I love horror movies. Scratch that. I love horror movies about things that can’t happen to me. I am not too fond of horror films that I could be in the middle of someday.
Jason doesn’t bother me. The chances of me running into an inbred wearing a hockey mask hanging out in the middle of the forest are not very good. Freddy doesn’t scare me either. Well they scare me enough to still have a good time with it all.
Basically what scares me is anything horror related that has a “based on a true story” tag on it.
Inspired by true events has basically the same effect. I remember watching an NBC “based on a true story” made for TV movie about some doctor that killed his wife and kids and blamed it on some Manson family like hippies and I was convinced that I needed to keep one eye on my father and another on my escape route from my house until I was out of middle school.
When I found out that The Exorcist was based on a documented true story I had a hard time keeping the DVD in my house.
Once you make a movie about something that I believe can possibly happen to me then it cease to be entertainment to me and becomes more like an infomercial.
It’s funny, when someone in the first world is possessed by the devil and they aren’t a Jesus freak, I tend to believe it. However, if the same thing happens in the dark jungles of some third world country I just think they have misdiagnosed some mentally ill patient.
I know, I know. Villageism is a bitch, isn’t it?
No one believes anything that comes out of a person’s mouth if they live in a village including myself. I am just as guilty of that as anyone.
I need to work on that.
A full-time exorcist practicing here in the states is not my kind of job. I prefer to delve into the dark side in my life purely on a theoretical level.
You can forget about me seeking any hands on experience with furniture moving around the house all by itself, light bulbs exploding and household appliances turning themselves off and on even when they are unplugged from the wall when you are alone.
I live in the states. I don’t have any culturally acceptable explanation that I can use to explain some otherworldly thing having a conversation with me through the static of my shower radio.
