After I watched 'The Gremlins' I was scared of my furby because it looked like the gremlins before they turned into the monsters, and I was scared to close my eyes to wash my hair in the shower because I thought a Gremlin would attack me. I couldn't sleep either, because I couldn't stop thinking about them. It took me a whole year to get over it.
For a long time i believed old black and white movies and photographs originally had colors, only they faded away over the years
I used to think that, if they did flashbacks to when the characters were young, they would start filming when all the actors they wanted were at a young age, and then waited until recently to do the present scenes!
I used to believe Indecent Proposal was about a man proposing to his girlfriend while naked. My mom used to ask "Are you decent?" when I took too long to get dressed, and I knew what a proposal was, so...
i used to believe that when you watched a movie, the actors were acting it out in real time for you EVERY time you watched it. and even when you re-wound or fast forwarded the movie they would go super fast
When I was about 4 my dad let me watch the movie 'Garbage Pail Kids' which is about, like, demonic cabbage patch dolls. I guess he thought it was a kid movie? Anyway, one of them eats toes and for about 20 years I couldn't sleep with my feet out from under the blankets. Thanks, Dad.
When Jaws was just released it was the scariest film i had ever seen. I actually belived that a "Jaws" would come up the toilet and bite me on the bum! Took me a while to get back on the toilet and a lot of convincing from my folks telling me he could'nt fit through the pipes!
i used to believe that when watching a movie in the theatre. actors would actually perform behind the canvas screen..how smart of me.??
After I saw Beetlejuice when I was 6, I went to school and told everyone that Beetlejuice (not Michael Keaton the actor who plays him) was my uncle.
I thought that there was a law that all movies had to have a happy ending
I used to believe that it was the Star Wars "Tri-ology" instead of the Stars Wars "trilogy".
I was quite disappointed when I finally watched "The Godfather" - as I grew up I thought the three parts were a chronolgical life story of James Brown.
I used to think I was Freddy's child. I lived on Elm St. and I was born on the 13th, which I assumed was obviously Friday. Turns out I was born on a Wednesday...
This is my daughter's. She's seven now.
We took her to her first movie in a theater when she was three. She did really well and loved the show. Then at the end, when the lights came up, she ran down to the front of the theater and started looking around on the wall under the screen.
We were about 7 or 8 rows back and called up to her to see what she was doing. She said, "Where's the tape?"
At home it is her job to put the video tape away after we watch a movie so she was up there looking for the slot that the tape would come out of now that the show was over.
I used to think Superman was real. My dad showed me a picture of George Reeves from the '50s Superman show and said he was Superman and that he fought in World War II. Dad then told me that Superman retired to live in Queens, in a house right down the road from our own. He refused to take me there.
I went to a catholic school and when i was 7 we saw "jesus of nazareth" in class. i didnt understand how they could've gotten camera crews to record jesus doing things. i thought they had a time machine to go tape all this. i didnt understand the concept of actors.
Thanks to the movie "Annie", I thought hot dogs were made from real dogs.
When I was 7, I watched Stand and Deliver. When the guy has a heart attack, I asked, "did he really have a heart attack?(refering to the actor)" My mom told me yes, (refering to the actual person the movie was based on.) I thought, if he's having a heart attack, why won't the camera man or director help him?!
I used to believe Tim Burton was the son of Richard Burton. And not only as a child, I was about 20 when I found out they're not related at all.
I used to believe that all the people killed by King Kong in the 1980's movie were really killed because they were condemned criminals on death row that were going to be killed anyway.
