when i was young, i had never seen A Nighmare on Elm Street and i didn't know that Freddy Krueger was the villain from that movie, i always just assumed that when people talked about Freddy Krueger they were talking about a keebler elf. i guess i thought this because Krueger and Keebler sound a bit alike, and i think there's a keebler elf named fred or something. anyway, so whenever someone talked about being scared to death of Freddy Krueger, i would laugh at them hysterically because i would always picture them being scared of a keebler elf. i believed this until i was 14 years old, when i went to a wax museum, and there was a wax figure of Freddy Krueger, and it said that he was the nighmare on elm st. villain and all, and then i understood why the other kids would look at me funny or run away whimpering when i laughed at them for being scared of him.

I used to believe that every time you watched a movie, the actors actually had to act it out again!

My uncle was delighted when he got a "Godfather" video for his birthday, and told my cousin, who was 9, that it was one of the best films ever. After my cousin went to bed, my uncle settled down to watch it. A few minutes in he heard the sound of a note being pushed under the living room door.

It was from my cousin, and read: "Oh yes? When are they going to start speaking English then?"

many moons ago (well, i'm not that old) i was at the cinema with a friends of mine and a trailer for a new film came on. after a few film clips it said "tom cruise", then some more film clips and "renee zellwigger", then a few more clips and "jerry maguire" and i turned to my friend and said "i've heard of the 1st two, but who's she?". sadly i hadn't realised that jerry maguire was the name of the film... this 'friend' has never let me live it down and bought me the video a few years back just to rub it in!

i used to believe that actors in the film actually worked on screen in the movie theatre as on a stage and they come out when the theatre gets empty.

I once went to watch a movie and saw the main hero die a tragic death. Thinking that he was dead for good, I started crying and created quite a scene. I coulndn't bear the fact that now he wont be able to make any more movies!

A couple of years ago when the Excorsist of Emily Rose came out, one of my friends saw a sceen from it. It was the one wear she wakes up around 3 A.M. and the devil enters the building and posses her. I thought that could actually happen to me. It still freaks me out to leave my room at 3 A.M.

I always thought when someone died in a movie that the person who died was played by a person on death-row so the directors always hired them to make it more realistic

When I was 7, I watched the movie, "Arthur locked in the library," and it scared me so much that I refused to go into libraries because I thought that if you went in, you would get locked in and get eaten by an evil grandfather clock. I also thought that the aforementioned clock would kill you if you sat on the toilet for too long.

There's this movie called Finding Nemo, and at one point, a girl is tapping on a fish tank and it is too loud for the fish, and one of them shouts, "Find a happy place!".
I didn't realize he was talking to himself and meant a happy place in his imagination.
I thought that he was talking to the girl and telling her to go find someplace that would make her happy and therefore stop bothering him.

I was watching this scary movie with my uncle and it had scary music. The next day when I went to the park, I thought that the band of men that were in the movie were coming to get me since I thought that the same music was playing. I ran to my aunt at the playground. I said in my high-pitched voice, "A band of men are coming to get me!!! (I pointed to where I saw them) See!!!". Then I hid behind me aunt hoping that they wouldn't eat us or if they had to, that they would eat my aunt first!!!

For years I thought the local cinema should replace their curtains because as they opened the film shone through them!

When I was young. My sister and her friends used to always watch Amittlyville: The Possesion and it used to freak me out so much. I was always scared of looking at the case and I always believed that Sonny (the guy that gets possessed in the movie) was always there in the dark just watching and waiting for me to fall asleep. Today, I'm still freaked out by those nightmares but when I watcht he movie I'm not scared of it.

When I was little and I watched movies I used to think the actors were acting out their parts over and over again. I couldn't understand how they got it exactly the same every time, and I didn't understand why they'd want to put on the same show just for me, but I still thought they did.
