What addictive fears do you have?<br><br><br><br>
For me, it's Zombies. Some years ago I was playing Resident Evil 2 on a Playstation, during the day, and it was freaking me out. I tried playing it at night, but couldn't do so after it got dark.<br><br><br><br>
Some months ago I hired the RE movie and crapped myself while watching it (at night).<br><br><br><br>
And just today I was watching Michael Jackson's "Thriller"..... I remember seeing this when I was a kid and being scared; it wasn't so bad now, but the whole Zombie element freaked me out.<br><br><br><br>
The whole idea of Zombies really fascinates me (yet can scare the hell out of me).

I'm not sure what you mean by "addictive" fears. If it's just things that we're scared of then mine would have to be barns - especially at night.<br><br><br><br>
I know that fear stems from seeing too many horror movies as a kid.

Oh, I should have explained it.... I mean things that scare you while at the same time you love to be frightened by. The idea of Zombies scares me but I find them fascinating.

Oh, I definitely do not love barns. I guess nightmares. I have them all the time and since I like horror movies it's kind of like watching a movie in my sleep. Sometimes they're a little too real though and scare the crap out of me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> Not literally.

Oh man... I lurrrrve nightmares!!! I really like having the bajeezus scared out of me and then waking up all crazy-like. I still remember my first nightmare, too. I don't have a favorite type of fear, although I really like some forms of pain (tattoos and peircings <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"> ) and also I fear my niece. That's different though.

I love watching all those forensic science shows on the Discovery Channel. They are always centered around the most hidious unsolved crimes, often involving kidnapped and tortured females. While I'm watching it, it scares the crap out of me and makes me wonder how I ever get the nerve to go running in a nearby state forest by myself. However, when I do go running it's the furthest thing from my mind.<br><br>
When my boyfriend finds me watching those programs, he just rolls his eyes and tells me how morbid I am.

Hey Michael - I have a Halloween party in my barn most years, candlelight and firelight and bales of straw to sit on. Beer in tubs of cold water and a BBQ on the go. You should come sometime... I make the boys pee on the compost heaps, which are around the back of the barn, under the big groaning sycamore tree, there's no lights and the winds howls up the bank. There are groans and rustles from the rats and foxes, and the branches of the tree tap on the tin roof of the barn. You'd love it!

My morbid curiosity gets the best of me to want to see gory pictures and hear gruesome details, of various things I come across but then I end up regretting it, or feeling faint.

ooh ooh Teri can i come? that sounds so wicked! i've always wanted to throw a genuinely scary halloween party.<br><br>
i like horror movies and scary stories and paranormal wackiness. when i was in highschool a few of us would always try to use a ouija board and plan sceances that we never got around to having, stuff like that. scared the daylights out of me but in a good way.<br><br>
i'm still into paranormal stuff, i think it's great that some nights when all is quiet i can hear footsteps in the hall, a door in the basement slamming, knocking on the wall or tapping on the window etc, when i know there's nobody home or everyone's asleep. creeps me right out but i love it.<br><br>
one night right after moving in the foosteps and creaking in the hall was so loud and persistent for a minute i really thought someone was in the house robbing us and i was terrified, i couldn't move and just watched the doorway from my bed waiting to see someone walk by or come in the room. after a while i realized i couldn't see shadows moving so there was really nobody there. cause the angle the light shines into the hallway would make it impossible for someone moving around to not cast a shadow on my bedroom door. whew.

I'm afraid of heights. It's not a paralyzing fear--I <i>can</i> climb a ladder, for instance, but the fear does make it difficult. The amount of fear I experience is directly proportional to the height of the drop to the ground.<br><br><br><br>
The great drops in rollercoasters scare the hell out of me. The sensation of climbing, slowly, slowly, to the top intensifies the fear... and then... such a fall! The sensation in my gut is sheer terror!<br><br><br><br>
And yet... they're strangely addictive!

I was obsessed with subway escalators when I was travelling for my job a lot. Every time I went to a city with a subway, I would spend my evenings going to as many subway stations as I could. DCs are kind of bland. New York is obviously the craziest, but the London Tube and the Boston T are the best, I think.

For me going up the hill on a roller coaster is worse than going down. I don't like the feeling of looking forward and to the sides and seeing nothing under me. Plus there's the aniticipation, at that point there's no turning back so all you can do is wait.

Come early and help cut the faces in the pumpkins, and bring a sleeping bag because nobody makes it away that night <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Just before midnight I go and sit under the old yew trees up on the top of the hill, light a dozen candles in jam jars, and some incense, and wait...
