Aaron Miller - Childhood Fears

Succubus | Oil on board | 5x7 | 2013 | Aaron Miller

For some reason or another I became afraid of horror movies as a kid. Even lame ones. And at some point I couldn't even watch the Incredible Hulk. I just avoided all contact with the subject.

Recently I came across the show that sparked the fear. It was a Hammer Horror episode, The Two Faces of Evil. The scene where the Doppelganger slits the drivers throat in the car. That was it. 

Years later at a birthday party my friends forced me to watch Nightmare on Elm Street. While I don't remember enjoying the movie it did sort of break the fear of these movies. And I started watching them like everyone else.
