Can you even imagine falling in love with a vampire?
Well, I watched Twilight last night and could not bring myself to reconcile to the concept of someone falling in love with a vampire. It left me feeling squeamish and worried at the same time that he would bite her by mistake. Although I have to say that the movie was fascinating.. I am now waiting to watch the next one. Husband was surprised to see my interest in it – I am normally very lazy about watching movies,( and movies of this genre, even more so) but for some reason, this one caught my imagination. Have any of you read the books? Is it worth the read or are the movies better?
Talking about fantasy/horror movies.. How comfortable are you with watching them? I am really, really uncomfortable with them. I much rather curl up with a nice book. Husband, on the other hand loves horror/fantasy/sci-fi movies. He can’t have enough of them. He does not even give up when it is too scary for him. One time, he saw so many horror movies, that he actually mistook me for a ghost, and screamed the house down 🙂 In his defense, Poohi and me had just returned from India, and he had spent the whole month that we were away, watching his scary movies and then the day we got back, had a scare of his life because he forgot that we were back 🙂
Talking about vampire and scary stuff, I still remember how badly I wanted to read Dracula. There was a phase in school when all of us chanced upon Dracula and wanted to read the book. We were a crazy bunch of kids, all book snobs, who wanted the real unabridged version, of which there were not too many copies in our library. and I remember the wait for the book and then the non-stop reading..
But I think, this genre of books were not really my thing. I would read them if I had nothing else to read, but not by preference. So what kind of person are you? Can you watch a horror movie without having to cover your face or flinching every time?
