Sundays in Bed with… Nightmares

March 17, 2013 In Bed With... 10

PhotobucketSunday’s in Bed is hosted by Kate at Midnight Book Girl to share with everyone what you’re reading in bed Sunday morning before getting to the days activities.

I am exhausted. Why am I exhausted? Because I didn’t sleep at all last night. Why didn’t I sleep?

First a little story…

Back when I first saw The Ring I was still living at home, and I had a TV across from my bed. If you’ve ever seen The Ring you know that that is not awesome for scaredy cats like me. I didn’t sleep good for several days because all I could picture was the girl coming out of the TV. I liked the movie, but it scared the crap out of me! I moved into my first apartment a few months later and got a free HBO trial and they were playing The Ring. I’m a glutton for punishment so I watched it (more than once) and didn’t sleep well for weeks. Seriously, that girl FREAKS ME OUT!

So what happened last night?

I was minding my own business, watching some Big Bang Theory, when a commercial for the movie Evil Dead came on. There is this little girl looking through a vent or something and she has that same coloring as the girl from The Ring but she is seriously scarier. Her voice. Her face. It’s all terrifying. I can’t even remember what she said but just picturing her in my head is FREAKING ME OUT!!!! Honestly, I’m not sure I’ll ever sleep again.

In other news…

I’m super excited today because Courtney from Abducted by Books is coming to Virginia!!!!

I hope everyone is having a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day!

If I get any spare time today (which is doubtful) I will be reading Requiem by Lauren Oliver. I just have to know what all the fuss is about, even if it breaks my heart.

    I’ve found The Ring to be one of the best horrors I’ve seen. :)

    Not because it’s scary, but more because of the story and the fact it doesn’t need to rely on gore. (if we’re talking about the American version anyway)

    For scariness, I guess it’d have to be one of the Paranormal Activity films. Though I wouldn’t say I get scared.

    Maybe you should try to watch something really really funny afterwards. Maybe a The Big Bang Theory episode would be good (except the last one which was a bit sad) Try to laugh or try to remember something really funny which happened to you and you laughed a lot. Maybe reading Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis after that. I don’t know :(

    Lol! I’m sorry about the loss of sleep, though. Not fun when you can’t get an image out of your mind.

    Ah – the Evil Dead! Seriously, I love scary movies. I watched The Exorcist by myself when I was home sick with the flu in the 8th grade. No problems. And the original Evil Dead? Great cult horror but never scared me much. But that girl/thing. In the basement. Oh. My. God. I LOVE scary movies. Sam Raimi is awesome as far as I’m concerned. And I CANNOT watch that movie! Too creepy. I feel your pain. I watch Disney cartoon classics if I get creeped by a scary movie, like Sinister from last year. Or that commercial.

    PS. Sorry I couldn’t make it to hang out with you guys + Courtney. I would have LOVED to and I’m really bummed I’m missing out.

    This story makes me laugh so hard. I remember watching the Ring with my sister. It was late at night and my parents were gone for the weekend. SO SCARY.

    I feel you on The Ring. I saw that in college and at the time I had this weird DVD player that would just pause and no matter what you hit on the remote or on the TV or on the DVD player itself, nothing would work, so I’d have to physically unplug the DVD player and then plug it back in to get the movie to start again. (Of course, I no longer have this DVD player!) So right at the part with all the water in the bathroom and the electricity (I think I’m remembering this right), the movie pauses and we (my roommates and I) can’t get it to start again no matter what. So I unplug the DVD player and when I plug it back in, I get an enormous shock. Like I needed that when I was watching The Ring!

    And what’s the deal with the new version of Evil Dead? The original was a classic because it really wasn’t scary at all. I don’t like this new version…
