Why I Couldn't Sleep Last Night...

So. Here follows the account of why I could not sleep last night.

It all started on Friday. Housemates and I decided to get drunk and watch An American Werewolf in London, because apparently that's a fun thing to do. It was.

The next day, we thought it would be very, very fun to watch an actually scary movie (AAWIL is more of a dark comedy/horror). We scoured the internet and asked many people their ideas for a scary movie to watch. In the end, we decided on Rec, the 2007 Spanish movie that was later adapted in America into the film Quarantine.

Basically, there's a journalist who decides to film a night with firefighters as part of a television program. They are called to an apartment building where a woman was screaming and can't get out of her apartment. They soon find this:

GAH!!! Oh but that is nothing compared to what follows. Anyway, turns out there's this virus that spreads via saliva. Very 28 Days Later. But scarier. The film itself is only an hour and fifteen minutes long, so once it gets going there's a lot of terror in a very small amount of time.

Also, I think this is the only movie where I have full-on screamed at a part. It may have been the fact that I was watching it with Housemates, so we were already being a little loud, but jeez. It gets scary.

So after that was over, we decided to go for a walk and see the beautiful bright moon and forget about zombies. It kind of worked. Ish.

After I got into bed and turned off my light, I thought that I would probably be okay. Those zombies were loud! I'd hear them coming from a mile away. We're on the ground floor! No [spoiler alert] attic doors in my room. But then...I remembered Slender Man.

If you don't want to end up like me last not watch this video. Anyway, I realized that I should have locked my door to avoid such a situation happening. Unfortunately, it was already 2am and I was sure Slender Man had already made it into my bedroom.

And so, my night was terrifying. That is my tale. =)
