Funny, I had that same problem, well sort of... for a little while I could only sleep during the daytime. At night I was too creeped out. And I've been working on, or making, scary movies for over 20 years now!

I was okay after about three days. The effect will probably wear off.

The effect of the film on me was quite funny. I had read all about it, had read postings on the net, knew about everything that happened in the film from start to finish. I knew the whole ad campaign was designed to trick you into thinking it was real.

I knew all that. But I championed the cause of this movie, because it was made by stray dog independent geeks with almost no money, and I was excited to see it. At the time this came out, too, I was tired of seeing big-budget special effects movies, too (I was "on the rebound," if you will). So I was prepared to accept it with open arms.

I was pleased to discover that the film had a kind of rough-hewn, off-the-cuff charm. I liked the unknown leads. And it had a joyful, "mud-pie" sort of feeling to me--you know, "We made this with NOTHING, look at it!" So yeah, while I was watching it, I felt I was getting just what I had paid for.

When I got home, lo and behold! I found that the film had actually creeped me out. I'm sure partially this was due to my receptive attitude. And I have been accused of having poor taste by many colleagues who are convinced it's a "piece of crap." And maybe it is a piece of crap. But dammit, I liked that piece of crap. I only saw it the once. I've always felt the effect would be spoiled if I saw the flick more than once.

I had a similar problem, and I found a solution that works wonders.




For every second the lights are on, rape him in the ass. I guarantee you the lights will never be on again after about a month (sometimes you have to rape him with the lights off, but that might just be me)

But it should work for you, worked wonders for me. To this day my dad won't have the lights on when I'm in the room.

Actually, you know what I did? I watched "The Simpsons," and that sort of got me un-scared. It took a few episodes, but it was the best thing for me.

makes me laugh when people say they can't do this, that and the other, after they've had a 'traumatic' viewing experience.

i have to admit .. jaws verified my fear of anything under the water ..because it played on a fear i already had.

but it was actually scuba diving that cured that fear ...

yeah, but this is different, a fear was already there.... to be exploited.

Becoming fearfull of something, that you was originally comfortable doing, prior to watching a scene, makes me believe that people are too easily influenced by what they view, in an emotional sence. It should be real life experiences that influence.

I'm sorry, but the point of this thread was that your roomate is a pussy ? Why not say so in the subject, everyone can say "yeah, sure", thread dies and we all move on to something new. Just because I'm a nice guy, bored, drunk and an asshole sometimes, I'm gonna do just that. Just for you to show you how it's done. You're my specail little guy now, Bart (can I call you 'Bart' ?).

dude, my grandma was in jaws. she was an extra, and you could only see her hand in it.:D Jaws was filmed on an island called "Martha's Vineyard" which is of the coast off massachussets. I have a house in martha's vineyard, and drive past the beach and some of the places that they have filmed that movie ALL the time.

New Orleans has a bunch of vampire movies that have been filmed here, interview with the vampire probably being the most popular.

What About Bob was Richard Dreyfus and Bill Murray right?

right where the scene was shot there are these $1000 a night hotels .. (the Camanian dollar is worth 1/4 more than the US dollar) so the people there were rich as shit.

my sister - who lived there - is taking the neighbours dog for a walk with us on that beach ... and he goes into the water after a stick, and procedes to take a runny disgusting shit 1 foot from a woman floating on an air mattress.

she pais $1000 camanian a night to have a dog almost shit on her - in the middle of paradise ... i almost nearly felt bad.

The Pelican Brief was made here too, my dad always tells me how he was in it and met Julia Roberts. I always tell him ''dude you were an extra and you stood behind her for 15 seconds''

those cemetaries are creepy, we can't bury anybody underground because of the sea level.

i thought blair witch was a fairly believeable flic most people just downed it because of the way it was filmed
