Dark

Every day I look at Amazon to see what their Gold Box deals of the day are. Today this was one of them:

I clicked on it out of curiosity and found it is a portable nightlight that also serves as a lit companion for little kids. And I guess bigger kids and adults, too. Here's a couple more pictures of it when lit:

Then I clicked on some of the related products, which then took me to more related products. I didn't realize there were so many things like this to provide light at night! I couldn't find anything with an illuminated clown face, however. How'd you like to be sleeping then open your eyes and find one of those staring at you?

Were you scared of the dark when you were little? Or maybe you're still scared of the dark? Take the poll below so we can see where everyone stands.

I went looking on YouTube to find a clip from the ending of Wait Until Dark. I found it, and the particular one I found was taken from Bravo TV's list of 100 scariest movie scenes of all time, that one coming in at number 10.

Naturally I had to peruse the others to see what else made the list and the one posted below, ranked number 8, is the scene I personally would pick as my number one. It scared the dickens out of me the first time I saw it and even though I know what is going to happen, I still had to take a deep breath when I watched it again just now and still it made me jump!

By the way, the opening scene from Jaws where the girl is swimming and the shark attacks her was Bravo's pick for the top spot.. naw, no way.

Anyway, take the poll, then watch the YouTube and then if you'd like, post a comment about what YOU think is the most frightening movie scene of all!

The most frightening film I ever saw was the original "The Haunting" directed by Robert Wise and starring Julie Harris, Claire Bloom, Richard Johnson and Russ Tamblyn [of all people!]. The "breathing" or flexing door scene near the end of this film scared the stuffings out of me when I was 11 and is still a good scare.
