I saw this last week, and I am still thinking about it

I think Mary Shelly put a curse on me for seeing the movie Frankenstein (Kenneth Branagh’s version) before reading the book, because I am haunted now.

I was expecting to see just another monster movie. It felt like it was my own selfish, flawed life that came down in a heap and caught fire, but burned slowly enough for me to watch each part curl and smolder.

I watched "The Haunting of Hill House" when I was babysitting and it scared the crap out of me. That was it for scary movies, esp vampires. (Well, Bela Lugosi was rather a hoot-"leesen to dem, the children of de night...what music dey make...")
