I'm a wuss. I freely admit it. I watch horror films in the theater by myself under the guise of being manly and not letting different types of horror get to me. However, if you were to see me in a theater watching a particular type of horror film you'll notice I wear a cap. That cap remains pulled closely to my eyebrows so I can easily block my gaze from the horror images on the screen. See I told you, WUSS! I do feel very proud of myself for putting on my big boy pants and strolling into the theater to begin with though.
So what kinds of horror get to me? Hauntings and alien abduction movies are top on my list for turning me into a puddle of wussiness. Movies like Fire in the Sky, Poltergeist, Amityville Horror, The Haunting in Connecticut, the new smash hit Paranormal Activity and any movie that is based on a real life ghost, haunting or alien event are on my strict no-watch list. (To this day I swear I was abducted and tested on). That's why you will not see me in line, cap or no cap, to watch Milla Jovovich in the upcoming alien abduction movie The Fourth Kind.
The Fourth Kind claims to be based on the real life events of Doctor Abigail Tyler (Jovovich) as she tries to understand why so many people in Nome, Alaska have been reported missing and alien abductions have been reported over the past forty years. The deeper she digs, the further she goes and begins to suspect, yup, yet another government conspiracy. Sort of a blasé way to take the story if you ask me; but what do I know, I'm a wuss.
Well, if this is the kind of movie you can't wait to have nightmares to, then watch the two new TV spots below courtesy of Bloody Disgusting. Just make sure you have your ball cap pulled down tight:
Can I look up yet? OK, great. So what did you think? Would you be sleeping well if a white owl was outside your window? I guarantee that little feathery, big-eyed bugger would get a few rounds from my Daisy Air Pump BB Gun. It'll be lights on for me for the next few weeks. Olatunde Osunsanmi writes, directs and as a secondary action makes me pee a little. I think the scariest parts are the "recorded" scenes of actual film footage from Dr. Tyler's sessions. (brrrrrr heebee jeebees)
Assuming you aren't as big as wuss as me, are you planning to see The Fourth Kind and what do you think of it so far?
The Fourth Kind abducts and probes you everywhere November 6th, 2009.
