Have You Ever Watched a Horror Film Alone?

I was just asking you guys if you go to the movies alone, and here we have some news about that very thing. Only this news is way more bizarre than just taking in a Saturday matinee by oneself. A 30-year-old man in India, Pavin Ponanna, bought all the seats to a showing of the horror film Phoonk, just so he could watch the movie alone. Why? Apparently the film's director, Bollywood producer-director Ram Gopal Verma, claimed his movie was so scary, nobody could watch it alone. So, Ponanna set out to prove him wrong.

In preparation for the big scary night, Ponanna visited a temple and asked the cinema staff to have a doctor on call, but when the film was over Ponanna claimed, "I never felt scared, not even for a moment. I took just 10 minutes to settle down." The whole thing cost him 47,000 rupees ($1,160) in tickets. You can check out the trailer for Phoonk here.

Have you ever seen a scary movie alone? Have you ever watched a scary movie alone to prove to yourself you could do it?
