Many years ago, they were very strict in what children watched. Not so much today.
My sister and I went to the movie theater. She's several years older than I. We didn't
know what was playing. So we get there and it's movie 'Black Sunday
'. I was like maybe
ten years old. They did not want to let us in to the theater stating we were far too young.
For some reason that I don't recall, we would have to wait a couple outside in the cold for
some time. (Chicago). Maybe it was going to be awhile til the next bus. I don't recall.
The point is, they did let us in to see the movie since we didn't have an immediate ride.
The movie started. I think it barely got started when we came flying out of there! I mean
we ran like running for our lives.
I don't remember what happen after we entered the theater lobby. Maybe we sat there
until the next bus run or maybe we went into the stores shopping. I don't remember
any of that.
What I do remember is a campfire, witches dancing around it and a person tied to a pole
of some sort. They took an iron mask that was full of sharp prongs and pushed it onto
his face. That is when my sister and I ran like no tomorrow.
I want you to know, to this day, I have tried a few times over the years to watch that
movie and I can't. It's a movie I rarely even see listed.
Of course today I guess that movie would seem like nothing and I have certainly without
a doubt watched worse. The few times I have tried to watch it, I just can't. I get a really
sick feeling every time it gets to the mask part which is at the beginning of the movie.
