My name is Timo (a.k.a. ghostofthemovie) and here is my traumafession.
My worst kindertrauma was definitely the movie adaption of STEPHEN KING’s novel IT by TOMMY LEE WALLACE. I’m still shaking when I remember watching it in my childhood.
Every time I saw TIM CURRY‘s clown masked face in a close up my heart started to pound and cold sweat was running down my neck. For a long time I was afraid to go outside when it was dark, because I thought the clown would come and hunt me down.
This kind of fear inspired by a movie was exciting in a completely new way. So I started to watch more horror stuff and I’m still a fan of this genre. But nowadays, these films are more like funny amusement than a deeply terrifying experience.
Great website by the way!
