Day 12: 31 Days of Horror: Jaws (1975)
Let me just say, it took a lot to make myself find a picture to put in this post. Nothing scares me more than being stuck out in the middle of the ocean in a sinking boat. Well, unless the boat was sinking AND being attacked by a bloodthirsty shark! I would probably die from being scared to death if I was in that sort of situation, which is why Jaws scares the hell out of me.
Sure, the shark doesn't look very real, but I still don't like the looks of it. Mainly because I can imagine it malfunctioning and actually killing me! That's why I will never go on the Jaws ride in Universal Studios. The chances of that mechanical shark malfunctioning and accidently killing people is probably 1 out of some ridiculously high number, but still, even if the chance is small, it's still possible!
I remember watching Jaws for the first time when I was a little kid. It terrified me at the same level as Pinocchio. How is this possible, you ask? Well, like I said, I hate the thought of me being on a sinking boat, especially is something is attacking it! The shark was like Monstro the whale, so I hated it! Strangely, it didn't keep me away from swimming in the lake, pool, or ocean. What can I say, I love to swim. However, it did make me panic a few times while I was swimming, so I'd run out of there if I saw something or if algae got tangled around my foot. Definitely thought it was Jaws trying to kill me.
