What’s the scariest movie you have ever seen?
The Silence of The Lambs?
Maybe you’re more old school.
When I was 16, my best friend Mike Graff and I saw The Deer Hunter, which won the Academy Award® for Best Picture in 1978. In the film, characters portrayed by Robert DeNiro and Christopher Walken were forced, as prisoners of war, to play Russian Roulette in one of the most harrowing movie scenes I have ever watched. I say “watched” even though it was between my fingers as I held my hand over my eyes to at least partially block the shocking view on the screen. Mike and I were as white as sheets walking out of that theater after seeing men not much older than ourselves experience the horrors of war. Those images have been seared into my memory.
