Psst, Katherine, I promise I had this one planned for today before I read your post for Day 13.
Today’s prompt was difficult since I tend to block out movies with animal death. And, as a general rule, I don’t do movies with killer animals either. Mainly because if there’s an animal killing humans, it means said animal will most likely be killed during the climax, and I cannot stand to watch animals killed onscreen (or anywhere, obviously).
So, I went with ARACHNOPHOBIA because when I watched it for the first time, I was with my mom. A woman who is scared enough of spiders she told me she would move out of a house if the spiders were too plentiful or too big. Also, my mom is one of those people who instructs (read: yells at) people onscreen what they should and shouldn’t do; who jumps when, say, a spider leaps on a character; and, who, yes, even screams. It was a pretty fun experience watching her freak the eff out during this movie.
But the movie itself was also not terrible, in a cheesy kinda way. If I can still remember it almost 30 years later, it had to have done something right.
