Movies You Refuse to Watch

Movie List Challenge: Flicks You Refuse to Watch

Did you know that my sister from another mister, FabSugar, is a horror movie aficionado? It's lucky for me, because it means she'll be guest blogging on the site on Friday to review A Nightmare on Elm Street. This isn't the first time scaredy-cat ways have prevented me from watching a movie — just last weekend I declined an invitation to watch The Shining at a Kubrick retrospective, too terrified to see it on a big screen.

When I think back to when I was younger, tons of movies I had to avoid come to mind. The cover of Hellraiser alone put me off, while my little sister still freaks out if I ever mention Leprechaun. It seems that most people have certain movies they won't watch, whether it's because they were traumatized at a young age, or are just turned off for one reason or the other. So for this week's Movie List Challenge, I want to hear about the films that you don't like to watch. Just join the group and make a new post with your picks, and you may see yourself on BuzzSugar!

I have not and will not ever watch the Exorcist. Not even with the sound off.

You couldn't pay me to watch anything that could be called "torture porn." Namely the Saw and Hostel films. I'm getting the creeps just writing the titles in this comment.

As the first commentor said, I no longer watch horror movies anymore. In what feels like a former life, I've sat through the Nightmare on Elm Street movies, Stephen Kings It (which actually makes me laugh now... different story...) and Sleepwalkers (which still feels rather tame as far as horror movies go). I've even watched Gothika in more recent times, though I don't think I'll ever do that again. But one which I just cannot watch is An American Werewolf in London. When I was roughly 11 or 12, I asked my mum to buy me this on Beta (yes, I'm showing my age) as I seemed to recall watching it on TV and (I guess) liking it. It started out normally, as they do, but a few minutes later I turned it off and it never again came out of its case.

I will take this one step further and say movies I have walked out in the middle of: Diary of A Mad Black Woman and Green Mile are two that I have walked out of.
