    The Saturday Post: Scared silly edition

    Jim and I are thinking about going to see a scary movie today. A really scary movie. One that when I first saw the creepy trailer, I told him I could never, ever watch it because it's just too creepy.

    Then I realized it stars Jessica Chastain. I love Jessica Chastain. So does Jim. So we're now thinking of going. Maybe.

    The movie is Mama and it's from super freaky Guillermo del Toro. I thought about sharing the trailer with you today, but as many of you don't like horror flicks, I decided instead to share the following video. It's about people getting scared—scared silly, that is, by super silly Ellen DeGeneres.

    If you're one of those folks who does like horror movies and you'd like to see the Mama trailer I didn't share here today, you can find it right here.

    Today's question:

    Other than scary movies, what scares you?

    I love Ellen! As for Mama -- like you I so the trailer sometime ago and swore NEVER! I really love scary movies but that trailer just freaked me out. If you and Jim do go I want a review please! We don't do theaters but let me know if I should Netflix it. Happy Saturday!

    That video was fun to watch. Thanks for sharing.
    As for scary things other than movies, I get scared when it's dark, everybody is in bed, and some noise outside sets both dogs scrambling out of bed and race to windows, barking like it's the end of the world. It usually turns out that some squirrel farted in the next county.

    That was great....I love Ellen!

    I do not watch scary movies....never have, never will, even if my favorite actor or actress is in it-LOL. You and Jim can go for it!

    I love scary movies, scary books, mysteries, and all things me pure entertainment and not real.

    The state of the 'real' world on the other hand, scares me a lot!

    Just about anything. I don't watch scary movies. Don't read scary stories. Don't like to go out at night. Definitely not a night person. One of my sons used to love to scare me. He'd hide outside my bedroom door just waiting for me to come out - never failed to freak me out. Over and over. You'd think I'd have learned to expect it. Nope. Was always good for a scream.

    And spiders. I crazy scared and freaked out by them.
