35 years ago this weekend...

This shit scared the living piss out of me. Seriously. I didn't sleep well for about a month.



I think it's the scariest opening scene in any movie I've ever seen. Too bad there's not a better version on Youtube.

I was 14, horny as hell, sittin' in the theater thinkin' "Holy shit, what a smokin' hot chick. What a lucky bastard." And then... Damn you Stephen Spielberg. Damn you.

Oh yeah, you could just feel the shock and pain she was feeling!

Second only to The Exorcist for scaring the piss out of me.

Ya' know, swear to God: I'd not seen EITHER of these classics 'til about FIVE-YEARS ago, for the first time!

Man, FX has really "grown", since JAWS, an' EXORCIST were made...!

How the hell did you miss Jaws on the big screen? The Exorcist... Maybe you were still wearin' green back then.

Lessee, when was it? In '75? Well, I was still "half-green", I was still in reserves.(Matter of fact, I was in CAMO, when I finally got out for good.)

Too damned-many HUMAN-PEOPLE in movie-houses, even "back in the old, young-days"...!☺

Aaaah yes, there is too much human interaction in those places. That's why my dad stopped going to movies. I don't think I ever went to one with him. Always mom, in the early days, before they'd let me and my friends go alone. Dad said there's too many people and they won't shut the hell up.

Got a "good"-fight started in one, once! Which is why,---just like bars, and Outback Steak Houses!---I "don-go-dere-no-mo'".

Ah hain't as "flexible" as ah used t' be.....!
