Not horror per se but animal kingdom is awesome, it is pretty spot on with our crime culture, very real kind of. which makes it scary in a non horror way.
film. Devastating ending.
Nuts. Crazy kid stuff. But my younger sister seems to recall this event as well. I guess we just spent so much time together growing up we ended up having very similar experiences during childhood, whether they were real or not.
This sounds like it could be another piece of the puzzle... when you have others sharing the same unexplained phenomenon, whichever reason (no matter how crazy it may now sound as an adult) that is the one eventually agreed upon at the time by those involved will only become more reinforced every time the event is brought up. That, and it's only natural for your younger sister to look to you, her elder sibling, for guidance and answers as to whatever experience you had shared.
Yes, this sounds plausible. However the issue remains - I am afraid of something that does not exist. Ah, whatever. Round and round it goes, not making any logical sense.
That just means the writer(s) of those movies did a good job. For example, I was playing Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance a while ago, and was worried for Raiden (maybe even a little scared of him) when he (copy/paste text to view, as it includes spoilers) said that "Jack is back", referring to his "Jack the Ripper" persona.
Ah, but see, I never feel any concern for any character in any movie ever, only for the welfare of myself
after having watched (specifically) a movie involving some kind of paranormal, supernatural events.
Recently I watched The Mothman Prophecies
and even though it essentially had a 'happy' ending (Richard Gere manages to save Laura Linney at the very end), the events throughout the duration of the movie still scared the snot out of me. The entity wasn't even malevolent, it was just trying to communicate that a disaster was going to happen.
At first I thought "It's about a lack of control of the situation; I can't fight a ghost/poltergeist/etc". But I can't fight an Alien, either. I can't fight a werewolf. I can't fight a vampire. So, lack of control is not the issue.
