Rats! Didn't know it was on. Creepy and black and white.

I meant to say (far too late for me) The Innocents is on Film 4 - since I've missed Scary Jack, will make do with louche ghosts.

I always hate that last bit with the photo and creepy grin. I don't know why but that creeps me out even more than the rest of it <wibble>

I love the book so much . The movie is fantastic too!

grin do you think it would be unreasonable to lie in wait for my grumpy DD in the morning and jump out at her yelling, 'heeereees Johnny!'?

Sqee Fri 27-May-11 02:48:03

Ofcorse not!

But I would start saving for her therapy sessions tomorrow morning too!

YANBU! I only got over my fear of the film after my best friend sat there taking the mick out of the entire film.

YANBU. A ex made me watch it once (in broad daylight) and it still scares the bajeezus out of me a decade on.

Open a Word document, type "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" over and over and over again, and then print it. In the morning, casually ask her to bring you the documents in the printer tray grin

I know grin

Saying that, when she was about 7 or so, she heard the Boogie Woogie Song by Insane Clown Posse when her brother (my stepson) put it on while babysitting and she sang it over and over for a week, even at school. The teachers had a word with me about it (told me off good and proper they did) and to stop her, I waited until she was almost asleep (with the light off) and got all dressed up in a sheet, crept into her room and stood in the corner.

I started making strange 'wooo' noises and shuffling until she sort of woke up and boy did she scream. Strangely enough, since that night, she's hated ICP and not been scared of much of anything hmm

I know it sounds horrible that I did that but really, have you heard the lyrics?

Boogie Woogie Man - ICP

I was not going to have her singing that, no matter what she wanted and her brother got a royal roasting from me and his mother <evil mother emoticon>

Ugh, I hate ICP. A bunch of little thugs around here are obsessed with them.
