I mostly avoid watching horror movies in the theater because well it doesn’t let me sleep at night.
Before this, I did watch IT with my friends but that didn’t scare me. Then for the “Darkest Chapter in the Conjuring Universe”, we couldn’t get our group seats, so each of us had to go solo.
And I got B 13.
This number has horror significance in Hindi movies. And I thought solo seat B 13 to the show of The Nun – I need to make sure I don’t scream out aloud.
But it wasn’t truly a horror experience. For one, “Nun” of the scenes were scary. I mean Conjuring 1 scenes are still fresh in my mind but nothing in The Nun could make me feel that, you know, the heart thud. Most of the scenes were just jump horror – oh there’s someone behind you, oh something is gonna fall from the top. After a time even Valak stops looking terrifying.
And secondly, the packed theater audience kept laughing and wolf whistling and clapping whenever Frenchie came on screen. It all dilutes the paranomal experience you see.
Am I upto a solo real horror movie night again? Ohoo, I don’t know. Because this one just happened. Maybe if the next one also just happens. I’ll really never know 👻
