    Little behind on finding you guys, but I LOVE this podcast so much! The scary movie moment that has always plagued me since I was young is also from Pet Sematary. the Gage cutting the neighbors ankle moment. yeesh.

    I first saw IT when I was about the age of the kids in the movie, and it scared me but I also really liked it. May have been partly due to me having had a crush on Jonathan Brandis as a kid…
    After I got a little older and read the book, I was disappointed by the way they handled the antagonist of the movie because of how they kinda down-played the monster transforming into each person’s worst fears and instead focused on the clown. That and the spider-thing at the end being totally not scary and not a very good translation of the monster from the book. I do still like the movie though mostly because I am a big King fan.

    I’m pretty desensitized at this point from seeing so many movies, but the first(? I think) episode of Marble Hornets, when he’s looking out the window and Slenderman is standing in the front yard and really suddenly turns to look at him, scared the crap out of me. The first time I saw it, I didn’t leave my room for the rest of the night and made my dog stay with me. It still creeps me the hell out.
