My parents frequently had my older brother baby-sit me. I remember one night we were watching TV...and it was past my bedtime. My brother was 15 and I was 9. My brother decided he wanted to watch Candyman. He tried to make me go to bed but I insisted on staying up until our parents got home. I didn't like sleeping not knowing where they were. So, I ended up watching Candyman at 9 years old. For years afterwards I was scared to go into a dark bathroom.I was convinced the Candyman would reach through the mirror and impale me on his hook. After I was finished using the bathroom I would step out into the hallway, reach around the door and turn the light off. God forbid if the power went out in the house and I had to go. I would scream and cry.
To this day I still turn the bathroom light off AFTER I step out in the hall. I'm now 21.
I used to try my hardest not to rewind or fast-forward videos, because I thought that each time you did that the actors had to play their parts either really fast or backwards. I felt sorry for them.
I figured out how women got pregnant from the movie "Grease" when I was six or seven years old. When Rizzo and her boyfriend are in the car about to have sex (I didn't know what they were about to do, of course), and the condom breaks, I thought it was a plastic ring, like the kind you get from cereal boxes, that they used as a symbol of their relationship. From that point on, I thought that if a piece of jewellery that a guy gives you breaks, you get pregnant.
The way I figured out she was pregnant was because she says she "skipped a period". Naturally, I thought she skipped a period at school, and thought, "Well, I'd skip gym if I was pregnant." I'd probably seen the movie 10 times before I was old enough to realize what was actually going on.
When we watched "THE RING" we used to believe we will dead the next week because the phone rang and nobody speak in!
I used to think that the films Jaw's was called George because the main shark was called George - not quite as terrifying as Jaw's is it?
I used to think that black and white movies were shot in color. Wherein the character's skins were painted white and the director would wash the paint off after shooting.
When I was young I used to think that if you didn't take a movie out of the VCR as soon as the credits ended it would start playing backwards and I was terrified (and still am) of songs and movies playing backwards.
When I was young I used to sit and watch my favorite movie over and over until one day I somehow got the idea in my head that there were real actors living in the tv. When my mom asked me why I stopped watching my favorite movie, I told her that I wanted to give the actors a break. They were probably tired of performing the same movie over and over.
I used to beleive that because cartoons were drawn, films were too. I used to think that they used 'special pens' to do this.
I used to believe that when a person was filmed with a camera they ceased to exist in real life and would only exist in the movie.
One day I went with my mom to pick my dad up from work and for some reason the news was there, when my dad walked past the camera I freaked out and it took them hours to calm me down. Instead of telling me that my belief was wrong they said that if a person walked by really fast the camera wouldn't catch them.
I refused to watch the film "Independence Day" for years as I believed it was a film about Jesus so it would be really boring. No, I don't know why either.
When i was little I used to belive that the probe on Star Trek:Voyage Home was really in outerspace and we needed to find whales for it.
When I was five I thought that when you watched a movie the actors and actresses knew that I wanted to watch the movie so they started acting it out. Then I learned the magic of recording.
My nan told me that the actor who played E.T. had died shortly after filming finished, because he'd had his neck stretched so much during filming. When I eventually found out this wasn't true I didn't dare tell my nan for fear of upsetting her.
My dad told me he was the tin man in the Wizard Of Oz. He meant he'd played him in an amatur production one time, but I naturally thought the tin man in the movie was my dad for years. I was Very proud
I used to watch Return to Oz and desperatley want to go there [!] so when at the end of the film, dorothy finds an emerld and touches it as says 'oz' and transports to the palace; I went round the Christmas tree touching every green baubell shouting 'oz,oz,oz' when i opened my eyes i was so sad i didnt get to oz!
When I was little and saw "This film has been modified from its original version and formatted to fit your screen" at the beginning of TV movies, I thought that the movie makers had figured out how to shrink the movie picture so it would fit on our little TV.
Last December (I was 12, people) I watched the movie A Wrinkle in Time in school. After watching that I was convinced that the 5th dimension the kids went to in A Wrinkle in Time was real, and I was bored and I wanted to find the Tesseract.
That only lasted a few hours, and then I put myself down for believing such a childish thing at 12 years old. And then I told someone (I think it was one of my friends) and she said, "Hey, it's possible." She most likely said that to make me stop feeling so down about believing it.
When I was little the Carry On films were the most risque television that my siblings and I were allowed to watch at home. At the time, all the innuendo and tight clothing and cleavage seemed very grown-up to me. So much so, in fact, that when I was having a video-party (bet they dont have those anymore) for my 11th birthday and my friends wanted to know what we were watching, I mentioned some of those films. Most of them hadnt heard of them and seemed more interested in what age rating they were, so I confidently told them they were at least a 12, maybe even a 15. My proud bubble was burst when one girl chimed in "No they're not, they're only a PG!" No one seemed very impressed after that, and suffice to say I rented some cool modern films for the party!
I once believed that anytime a tape was played, and thus a movie watched, the actors were somehow acting it out live. I finally got straightened out when I asked my dad, "How can they be ready to redo the whole movie anytime someone wants to watch it?" and he explained the concept of VHS tapes to me.
