5 Things The Movies Have Taught Me To Fear In Real Life
No filmmaker has articulated my fear of having something living growing inside me quite like Ridley Scott. In Alien and Prometheus he had characters harboring ghastly developing extraterrestrials in their guts, and in both instances the results were gruesome with the little bugger hell-bent on its host's destruction. As if pregnancy wasn't scary enough, there's a whole subgenre of creepy kid pics where these wide-eyed little cuties are likewise naturally bent to kill and maim. Whether its The Bad Seed, Rosemary's Baby, or We Need to Talk About Kevin, these features bolster my fear that just because a child might grow inside you doesn't mean you can possibly anticipate what it'll be for better or worse…but mostly for worse.
