Horror movies are fun to watch from the safety and comfort of a home or movie theater. But to actually experience the adrenaline spike of mortal fear in real life is a lot less fun/exciting, and a lot more pee-your-pants terrifying. At least they make a good story, if you live to tell the tale!

I've never been more sure I was about to get murdered than I was that night.
