Last night I watched “The Possession” for the first time. Some creepy scenes throughout but when the bugs flew out from behind the bathroom mirror I actually screamed out loud and burst into tears (I’ve mentioned my fear of flying insects on the Bee before). WTF?!! I love horror movies and have watched hundreds of them. I have never, ever cried out of fear from a movie before. Darling Husband thought I had gone insane. Has anyone else cried from a scary movie scene before?

@Aquaria: Scary movies make me cry too. I don’t even watch them though, because I find them to be spiritually negative. They make me think of the evil in the world, and I want to be a mighty force for good, full of Godly, positive thoughts. I don’t want to give power to dark things and thoughts by wasting energy and time focusing on them.

@Aquaria: when I get truly scared, I cry. I can’t help it. Not sobbing or wailing, but tears well up in my eyes and roll down my cheeks. I cannot control it. I have cried in several scary movies lol

Yes, absolutely, but it’s usually sexual violence that gets me sobbing uncontrollably. FI now reads content before we watch movies that may have something bad.

Hmm scary things don’t typically make me cry, although I tend to close my eyes when I get scared so maybe I just miss the scenes that would make me cry!

Nope. Pretty sure my tear ducts don’t work ever unless I’m sad.

Scary movies don’t make me cry but they make me nauseus – talking about sick violent movies like Hostel, Human Centipede, etc.

No. I’m not an overly emotional person. But I will say that I once saw faces of death and that was disgusting. I truly do not find any “scary” movie to be scary. Movies 20+ yrs ago were the real deal though. Movies today are so fake.

I’m not proud of it. But the very first paranormal activity made me cry. My nerves were on edge for the rest of the night as well. I don’t do demons… at all. Eesh.

I will get chocked up during emotional scenes in a movie (like the end of the Notebook, of even Homeward Bound!) but not scary movies. I love them, but have become pretty desensitized to them. I thought Paranormal Activity was one of the most boring movies I have ever seen.

What embarrassed about the incident was that it was BUGS that set me off. I’m not phased by murder, guts, gore, or demons. It’s just insects. The moths in Silence of the Lambs make me shudder also.

@Aquaria: I never cry during movies. Not even the sad ones.
