When I was 5, I saw Tremors with my 8-year old cousins. I was sooo scared. For the next month or so, I kept running to where I need to go. Like, if I needed to go from the couch to my bedroom, I would run like lightning to my room and hop on my bed as fast as possible.
I thought the Stromtroopers in Star Wars were robots.
I used to believe that the killer in the 'Scream' movies was named "Scream-Killer"(he's actually named Ghostface) and was the polite serial killer because he used to call people before killing them.
Before I could read (around the age of 4) I thought that when a movie ended there was a roll inside of tv that displayed the same credits over and over - as they rolled up the screen they appeared at the bottom again.
At 8 my mom thought I would enjoy the movie the Excorcist?! For the next two years I believed the devil was going to possess me, so I used to put my dolls and stuffed animals in a cocoon around me to protect me. What was my mom thinking? (I still have never watched that movie to this day)
I used to believe Verne Troyer from Austin Powers (Mini Me) was a robot and I thought cousin skeeter on nickeleodean was real.
I used to believe in super heroes exist in the world
When my ten year old daughter was about
two, she used to ask to watch the Dig Digs
all the time. I had no idea what she was
talking about until she recieved a Snow
White shirt for Christmas and said "look
mommy the dig digs" Later that day, we watched the movie and realized the Dwarves sing a
song about digging! Mystery solved.
When I was young (around 5 or so), I was convinced that the movie "Milo and Otis" was called "My Little Otis". I called it that for a few years until my parents decided to break it to me I was saying it wrong.
When my friend told me about the Halloween films I believed it was the true stry of the actor Mike Meyors becoming a serial Killer.
I used to believe there actually exists real-life equivalent of Cruella DeVil from "101 dalmatians", only she's called Lustylla DeBet (debet means debit in Polish) and she is accountant, she drives old-fashioned car like the one from movie, only the front of it is divided in half by T account and it has "Fa VAT 146" on its plate ("Fa Vat" is invoice in Polish) and there are accouncy documents stuck behind the wipers!
As a kid I loved the Star Wars movies, and wholeheartedly believed that they would happen in the future. I used to sit in my mom's room staring at a plastic bag trying to use the "force" to pick it up.
After watching Titanic my small sister kept crying because she thought that the director killed those people in the ship just for the sake of making the movie..!!
After that i had to explain her how movies are actually made.
I thought Buckwheat from "The Little Rascals" (1994) was a girl because he had long hair!
For years the movie Willie Wonka and the Chocolate factory terrified me. The thought of a little kid, no matter how mean and evil getting burned in a furnace or being squeezed after turning into a giant blueberry filled me with dread. To this day, I still sort of see it as a horror movie.
I watched Nightmare on Elm Street when I was young, and of course, I couldn't sleep. So I would tell myself over and over, and really believed ,"I'm just a little kid and that monsters only want to get the teenagers!!"
I used to beleive that E.T. was a killer and it took about 7 years to figure out what it was really about.
When I was little, I swa the movie Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and got scared to death of the Oompa Loompas. I thought they would come and send me down a chute to a garbage disposal while I was sleeping. I still get the jitters about them.
Back when the COCOON movies were popular I for a long time thought there was an actress in them named Donna Meechee (I wasn't sure how to spell her last name). I puzzled over what character she played. Quite sometime later I finally found out that I was hearing the name of actor Don Ameche instead.
I spent my childhood Saturday afternoons watching a lot of old musicals on TV.
I used to believe that grownups got involved in song and dance routines as part of their day to day lives.
It used to bother me that I wouldn't know what to do if a bunch of singing and dancing strangers leapt up to me and tried to incorporate me into their number.
I consoled myself by supposing that as I got older the dance steps and the words would come to me naturally, like other grownup ways.
