Scariest Movies Ever


 

Most people are not afraid to get scared and some even will pay money to do so. With all the recent talk about the new movie, Paranormal Activity 2 and how people are jumping several times and several inches during the movie, I decided to make a list of some of the movies, I found scary.  Scary doesn’t always mean jumping at every bang or appearance of an ugly face, but it means being afraid to sleep with lights off at night for weeks or months after viewing.

Some of the best movies ever made are scary movies, but you will never find most of them being nominated for, much less winning any mainstream awards. Maybe the movie world still think boring an audience into a coma is art. I know people who went to see scary movies due to office peer pressure and faked bravery by sitting with their eyes closed or looking at the vibrating head of the person in front of them for the entire movie. Those people are known as wimps and should be exposed for what they are. I like scary movies because it takes my mind away from the scary parts of daily life. Things like slow moving traffic in the Beetham, the price of tomatoes, or seeing a rapidly aging Colm Imbert on TV.

I made a poll to select the scariest movies ever made, the results of which will be used for nothing in particular except fun.

Clico Policyholders – The Public’s Impression


The public has the impression that the Clico Policyholders Group (CPG), comprising a small percentage of the population of Trinidad and Tobago, is trying to flex its hot-air inflated muscle to bully the rest of the citizens of the country to get back all the toys it freely loaned to Clico to play with plus some extra ones. The public also feels the CPG, in its desperation, contracted an unpopular, unloved lawyer to deliver bully-talk to the population. The Group appears to be trying to terrorize billions in lunch money out of the pockets of people who either didn’t have the money or intelligence to give the Clico dice throwers to gamble with. The Group must understand that despite some policy holders falling on hard times because of the fiasco, the unemployed, the sick, the hungry, the over taxed, and the corruption-battered don’t want to be sacrificed to make the policyholders happy during this extended guava season.

I don’t think all is lost for the CPG as some of the most brilliant business minds in the land, who are also policyholders and members of the CPG, have issued press releases which conjure up the image the bailout won’t cost citizens anything “much.” It’s not that the Group will not be bailed out but the Group seems to want its black cake baked with the finest imported, dried fruits and soaked with Angostura Single Barrel Rum, all at the expense of the country whose citizens will have to settle for the crumbs of a stale Kiss cake. That is what the public is seeing.
