Horror movies that caused you psychosis?

The most tangible effect was “Alien”. I remember seeing a lineup of my monsters in a dream. The monsters that I had to contend with… some sort of deep meaning, each one, waiting for their turn at me. And one of them was that monster in Alien. About second or third one down.

I think it has something to do with the sardonicism associated with organized religion. Not mine, but other peoples… Some people are so furious at the concept of organized religion, they invent a reality grotesquely heinous to take its place. Reality becomes heinous. Intentionally made that way for their argument. And the Alien concept is all over youtube. People who talk about mankinds origin from aliens. Government coverups. Etc etc. I wouldn’t say it caused me a psychosis. But it turned my watching the movie into a cult following. My trying to understand it into a religion.

When I first saw alien my thought was, believe it or not, “robinson coruso”. When robinson coruso got stranded on a deserted island as a kid, he saw the skeleton of a whale on the beach, and didn’t know it was a whale. He called it a monster, looked out at the sea, and told himself that there were monsters out there. And the unknown has always been about that. Exploration has always been about that… Its the most terrifying thing known to man, the unknown.

A lot of horror movies have set me off, one was “the purge” because my father in law was like, “that could happen in real life the government sanctioning murder and other crimes” i was a wreck after that movie, i couldn’t sleep for three days.

That one got my sis too. She was on this Guantanamo Bay “purge” rant for a very long time after she saw it. Movies like that, “V” and “Fahrenheit 451” and “Brazil” “Wag the Dog” all get to her. Shadow Government is a weak spot for her. I hate it when she sees those movies because I’m the one who has to live with the rant.

She’s still passionate about stuff like this, but I think she’s come to realize she can’t shut it all down alone. It’s need’s a few other people like Congress and Voters, and the prez. Just a few people like that.

When my kid sister was 5 my stupid younger brother Jacob took her to late night cult showing of Cutting Moments by Douglas Buck and Silence of the Lambs… How he got her in I will never know. I’m SZ and even I would NOT take a 5 year old to Silence of the lambs…

Rocky Horror… Guilty… But she liked the singing.

Cutting Moments… sick sick film about parental incest and self mutilation. Well… Silence of the Lambs…
This is upset my kid sis so much she slept in my bed for weeks with a night light on and a big metal flashlight in arms reach at all times.

I got to see it now that you wrote that.

After 28 days later I was buying a lighter and caught myself looking around the store for a heavy object incase someone freaked out and tried to kill me. A lot of people around the age of 30 are scared of clowns because they watched IT at a young age. I guess that means there is an age thats too young to watch horror movies.

@pansdisease I also met a guy who caused a hallucination and it was weird because it wasn’t just me that hallucinated there was another guy there too. I hung out with him for a while and it happened a lot. It made me think I was going crazy. Glad I didn’t get called a witch he just made it seem normal.

Silent Hill hits home, when I hit psychosis I get to blood fiending, hearing voices, seeing horrible creatures, and the room usually looks different.

Bloody movies are my favorite but sometimes I can’t watch them without “schizing out”

The Final Destination series is an utter joke to me seeing as how I was clinically dead as an infant for 5 minutes and I don’t recall repeated ceaseless attempts on my life every day for the past 29 years that usually defy the laws of physics.

The series Silent Hill just makes me feel like I’m at home because it’s pretty similar to things I’ve experienced before due to my schizophrenia.

I guess horror franchise doesn’t really scare me much overall because I’ve usually experienced things much worse in my reality.

Another Tom Cruise movie; Eyes Wide Shut gave me the same feeling of paranoia as when I was psychotic and thought I was being monitored in real life and mocked about it on the internet.

While I was typing this, I realized how many Tom Cruise movies have made me feel like that…Minority Report is another one. So is that one that came out several years ago where he kept on dying, glad I wasn’t full in blown psychosis when I saw that one.
Weird, I wonder why he has acted in so many mind f***k movies…
