El Pasoans Tell Us What They Won’t Do Anymore Because of a Horror Movie
Once upon a time I tried watching horror flicks, but they are just way too intense for me. The few I did watch scarred me for life. Horror movies have that effect on people.
A recent survey found that fifty-two percent of Americans say the thing that frightened them from having watched a horror flick back in the day has the same effect on them today.
So, what don't or won't you do anymore because of a scary movie you watched?
I won't pick up anyone stranded on the side of the road because of the 1986 film "The Hitcher." I don't care what gender or how feeble they look.

Yeah, the "Final Destination" series has really done a number on so many people in so many different ways. Other things El Pasoans won't do because of one of the "Final Destination" movies:
I avoid clotheslines at all costs. Final Destination
Never ever getting on Roller coaster rides!!! Thanks to the final destination movie
Only metal bleachers for me now. Won't sit on wooden bleachers and risk impalement because of Final Destination
