Childhood Trauma - "The Exorcist"

Childhood Trauma - The ExorcistSo I’m guessing my affinity to scary movies had something to do with the fact that parental discretion was not properly exercised in my family. I remember watching The Exorcist at a the ripe age age of 7 or 8 years old. Either way, that’s way too young to be watching a movie like this! Hah hah! I remember having anxiety every time I heard the music from this movie, and there was no way I’d be eating my mom’s pea soup for at least a month. The worst is that scene where that weird-creepy face pops up in the shadows. Oh gosh! I remember not wanting to open my eyes in my darkened bedroom for fear of seeing it on my ceiling. In retrospect, this movie isn't that scary. However it definitely made other scary movies look like Disney flicks at the time. So "The Exorcist," bad on the nerves, but good for building…character?
