Wherein I was extemely foolish.

I shouldn't have done it. I know better than to do stupid things like that.

The other night, curiosity killed the cat. We had seen the trailer for The Grudge, and it royally creeped me out. So I got curious about that other "remake of a japanese horror film," The Ring. I came upon a scene by scene comparison of The Ring, Ringu, and the Korean remake The Ring Virus. Big fucking mistake. Seeing the visuals from the films, even as stills, gave my imagination entirely too much food.

I gave myself nightmares that night. To be more precise, I gave myself a waking nightmare, something I haven't suffered since I was a small child. Middle of the night, having woken up from one nightmare, in that drowsy state between waking and true sleep, I felt a hand reach up, encircle my head, and grasp the back of my skull. And disappear.

I shrieked inside my mind, my thoughts repeating "itsjosh itsjosh itmustbejosh ithastobejosh", and as I pulled myself into true waking, I saw that Hubby hadn't moved in his slumber.

I didn't sleep much the rest of that night.

And I felt really, really stupid the following morning.

Google "Ring Ringu comparison" and you'll find it. It's titled "The Ring Cycle" [shudder]

I really, really feel for you. The Ring messed me up very badly, and my sister even worse. She actually spent sessions with her therapist discussing how much The Ring had disturbed her. It was successful at what it attempted to do, which is to scare the shit out of a person, but I could have done without the nightmares. And I shut my eyes through most of the preview of The Grudge as soon as I saw which way the wind was blowing on that one - like The Ring, only with more undead children!

Ack!
I hope the Warden doesn't have it on his NetFlix queue.
