I am not a person who will go to the movies to watch the latest Horror flick. Watching a bunch of Young adults being hacked to death by a deranged killer is not my kind of entertainment.
If I want to get scared, I just watch the evening news!
But there are times when you are watching a movie or T.V. show and the unexpected happens and it is time for Dave to check his pants!!!!
It happens almost every movie that has suspense in it. Our hero of heroine has a moment to catch their breath and KABLAMO! Something unexpected happens and you jump out of your seat.
I vividly remember three example.
Jurassic Park (I think it was the first one) our heroes’ are being chased by the Raptors and find a shed to hide in …..Looking for an escape route, and just as it looks like they will KABLAMO time for Dave to check his pants again.
Batman the Dark Knight. Batman has inspired others to wear the cape and cowl but the Joker is not pleased, a quite scene is interrupted by a body hanging just outside a window with Joker make up and Batman’s cape and cowl. KABLAMO Check Dave’s pants again.
But the one that I remember most was a moment in JAWS! No not the “We’re gonna need a bigger boat scene” but that was a check the pants moment.
I was on a double date to see the movie. I did not know that I was the only one of the four that had not seen the film. Yes my friends set me up and I fell for it. I should have realized something was up when the three seemed to be paying more attention to me that the movie. Here is that scene.
I got more air than Jordan did that night. That scared the checking of the pants out of me. I screamed like a little girl and I think the whole theater was laughing at me! But I had the last laugh. My popcorn and soda was all over them!
