When I Was 5, I Was Afraid To Watch Scary Movies, Because I Thought That If I Watched Them By Myself,The VCR Would Become Haunted And The Tape Would Get Stuck On Really Horrifying Parts When I Tried To Eject It To Keep From Watching. I thought That Some Invisble Force Would Pull My Eyes Into The Direction Of The Movie And Make Me Watch It.
my older brother managed to convince me that Jackie Chan would die if the back of his head got touched due to a previous injury that resulted in the placing of a plastic plug in his skull (the plastic plug part is true, just the death part is false)
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.
During my entire childhood, I believed I was one of the three munchkins that sing to dorthy on the yellow brick road. Someone told me when i was really young that it was myself, my brother, and my cousin that welcomed her. I even went as far as to tell people in elemantary school; i was surprised they didnt recognize me.
I used to believe that when I went to movies people were behind the screen acting out the part
When I watched the original Star Wars trilogy on VHS as a kid, I believed that the actors were inside of the tape, and when I rewound the tape, it would make them do the scene again, therefor making them mad. I didn't rewind the tape that much after that.
When I was younger I used to believe that when the credits rolled they'd fall behind the tv. I'd always check, but they were never there.
Until I was 13, I believed that when a man and woman kissed in the movies or on TV, they weren't REALLY kissing. I have no idea how I thought that they could fake kiss.
When I was about 3, I saw the movie Fantasia. I was horrified by the big monster guy, and I thought that if I didn't close my eyes when I saw him he would jump out of the tv screen and feed me to the broom people, who I was also very scared of.
When the advertized a movie
"AT A THEATER NEAR YOU"
I thought they would not run the movie if they found out you were not from near there.
I used to think that "The Omen" was about a bunch of people who could only say "O", the O-Men. I know this is wrong now, even though I'm about 5 years too young to actually watch "The Omen".
my uncle happens to look very much like steve martin, and he does the odd commercial or bit part in a movie. Until I was about 8 I thought that my Uncle Rich was in Father of the Bride and it was just common knowledge in my family and no one mentioned it. I thought his other name was steve martin.
I used to think that Mary, Kate, and Ashley were three girls and I was always like WHERE'S THE THIRD ONE? I told my friend this and she said she used to think that Mary Kate was one girls full name and Ashley Olsen was the other girl and she always wondered how they looked so much a like without being related.
I used to think that Jason Voorhees was a swiss cheese man instead of a slasher killer. I played a Friday the 13th game on the original Nintendo, but I wasn't aware it was based on a movie. So when I was fighting the Jason on the game, it was yellow, and it had what looked like holes in its face due to the hockey mask. And I was terrified of it, because it looked like swiss cheese. Once I found out that it was really a killer instead of swiss cheese, somehow I became less afraid of it. I was a strange kid...
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 once asked someone how they made it look so real when people got shot in the movies...
The response was that they find people who want to commit suicide and who look enough like the actor (who was going to be shot) and they'd use them, with real bullets.
This is very sad - my neice (22) believed that the 'bloopers' at the end of animation movies like 'Toy Story' where real - she really believed that it was strange that they would have made such mistakes in filming an animation.
While everyone else listened to her in stunned silence I broke it to her gently pretending that she was just joking (I'm not too sure if she 'gets it' though).
When I was litle, I would watch TV and see previews for movies. They always ended by saying "...soon in a theater near you!" I always assumed that the city we lived in was called U, because we always had to drive to another city nearby (my town was very small) to see movies.
When movie previews would say something like "Only in theatres on November 3rd" I thought they would only be in theatres for one day and it used to really upset me.
I used to believe that the past was really in black an white (like in the movies) and color was a recent addition.
