I don’t remember specifically liking or disliking it. What I do know that I think I imprinted that day, and a horror movie fan was born. Listening to my favorite podcast Killer POV they covered childhood obsessions this week. Those movies that you saw as a kid and watched every chance you got. Were they masterpieces? Not so much. But to me, they were manna from heaven. I have decided to ‘bare a little’ and ‘show you mine’. Each of these little gems shaped.. well.. warped.. little me into the horror junkie I now am.
I decided to keep it tight. I am not going to go into the darker stuff I found in my later teens. I am sticking to my gateway drugs. Shown only in the order they popped in my head, not meaning to give any one movie merit over any of the others.
Critters (I am pretty sure Terrence Mann kickstarted me into puberty)
Little Shop of Horror
The Neverending Story
Escape to Witch Mountain
