A few years ago myself, my husband, my friend and her boyfriend went to a mutual friends movie premier. It was part of a festival and afterward The Thing was playing. The boys and I wanted to watch it on the big screen, and she had never seen it, we told her it wasn't that scary. I think she's still mad at us.
Today we have a classic scary film. Haunting of Hills House is one of my favorites. No gore, no jump scares, no big effects. Just quiet tension.
