Things Horror Films Have Ruined For Me

"No lovey dovey films for me thank you!  Here's looking at you 'The Notebook'."

I'm partial to a good horror film. I'm that annoying person who always pipes up when it comes to choosing a film category on Netflix. Without fail every time i make a b-line straight for the horror category - no lovey dovey films for me thank you! - Here's looking at you 'The Notebook'.

Although I think myself of some sort of seasoned pro when it comes to horror movies - you could name anyone and chances are I've seen it - it still doesn't stop me turning into massive puddle on the floor as soon as anything goes bump in the night. Here's just a small list of things that have now been ruined for me thanks to the joys of horror films.

Mirrors 

The mirror and I have a love hate relationship anyway, but thanks to the powers that be expensive skincare some mornings are better than others. But no thanks to films such as; Mirrors, Oculus, Candy Man, Aimtyville Horror, etc, etc the morning mirror tango is something more than just a causal routine. 

If i ever drop a brush on the floor I'm always terrified to pick it up, as that means looking away from said mirror and then having to face the eyes of some weird looking death eater.  No thank you ghost even if you are Casper I'm not looking away!

Getting into Bed 

I know I can't be alone on this one I've been jumping onto my bed since '98. I've even gone as far as purchasing a box bed so there is no space underneath for anyone to hide.. well okay, I bought it because of the extra space it gives but it's a bonus that I now don't have to worry about anyone grabbing my ankles!


China Dolls (Scrap that ANY Doll) 

I was a massive fan of China dolls when I was growing up, y'know these onesUntil one day I stumbled onto the film Chuckie and then it all changed. I convinced myself that my dolls where out to get me, In a bid to stop them attacking me I brushed there hair everyday hoping the kind deed would tide them over.  Eventually I forced my mum to sell them off at a boot fair, I'm still waiting for them to return and get me!

Things Horror Films Have Ruined For Me

Hostels

I'd love to be the kind of wanderlust fueled traveler who carelessly sleeps wherever in order to explore the unknown. But quite frankly the unknown is a little too unknown for my liking, all thanks to the 'groundbreakingly' titled film Hostel (I know, really pushed the boat out when they named that). Saying that, it's unlikely that ill be seduced into my bedroom by some hot babes... well actually, if they lured me in with food and makeup... 

Tube Stations 

I think it goes without saying Creep and The Midnight Meat Train (Yep it's as good as it sounds) have successfully ruined tube stations for everyone. I'm no longer the kind of person who stays for late drinks and waits for the very last tube, I'm on that tube oyster in hand whilst it's still busy. Give me the safety of sweaty BO armpits on a packed train any day!

Lucid Dreaming

For those of you who aren't aware its essentially the practice of controlling your own dreams. Back in the day I thought that was kinda cool, I'd try and make myself dream about having Enrique Iglesiasas as my BF (C'mon you know hes hot) and having all the shoes in the world, but then i watched Insidious and any notions of it being 'cool' went straight out the window. 

No Mr Red Demon man, who kinda looks like Darth Maul (Star Wars nerd reference) please don't kidnap asleep Charlotte and lock her in your weird room whilst you play that creepy 'Tip toe through the tulips' song. Thanks Insidious, you've literally killed my dreams. 

Showers & Bath tubs 

Ah bath time, my favorite activity of the day. It's the time I get to test out new bath bombs and shower gels and have some well earned me time. Well, that was until I saw the films What Lies Beneath and The Grudge. Ever since I saw them films my shower time has never been the same, i'm on constant karate alert armed with my nunchucks, no more head dunking under the water for me! 

I can't be alone with these, what have horror films ruined for you?
