Name a movie that frightened you.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding

I saw this movie with my fiancee two weeks before we were to get married. It was a very ominous experience. The two families eerily paralleled hers and mine. My family is reserved, Emily’s is, well, exuberant. It made such an impression that seven years later, I still remember the name of the father was Gus Portokalos. The thing that made the movie scary was that I was fine with all the marriage preparation that we had been doing all along, but that was the moment when the reality of it all hit me. I think I also made Emily nervous, because she probably saw me sitting silent and still in my seat with my eyes bugging out.

It’s a good thing everyone got along in the end!
