The Scariest Movie of My Life

I know that some people would name Poltergeist, or Scream, or Psycho, or some such movie that scared the crap out of them, but here's mine:



Can anyone relate?

(Here's a fantastic post Brant did on it awhile ago, back when he used to blog)

Oh! That scene in the kitchen with the blender, then the bathroom with the razor going! My mom took me to our church to watch that movie when I was way too young to be watching it. I can totally relate!

I just went over and read Brant's post. So funny! I used to worry about everyone being raptured but me when I walked into an empty room too - even though I knew I was saved. I'm sure it was because I watched this movie at a young age!

Ah, yes, I agree it scared me when I was young. I think I saw when I was six or so. A little too young? Yeah, methinks, but people at our church didn't think it was inappropriate for anyone-- as long as our soul was saved. I think I even wrote a poem about it at one point, but I can't seem to find it. I was going to send a copy of it to you.

Thanks for sharing Brant's post. At least, someone got a little humor out of it. I never could.

Have you been able to get through Matthew Paul Turner's book yet? He talks about this movie, and how the sequel had a character in it, a pastor who was left behind, whose name was Matthew Turner. And everyone in the church turned around and looked at him when the actor first said his name.

Man! Amy, I'm dating myself! I was probably 11 or 12 when our church in Denver showed both A Thief in The Night and A Distant Thunder. I'll never forget them. I was scared to go to sleep for weeks, thinking I'd wake up and my parents would be GONE! Interestingly enough I don't think the Left Behind series has anything on these movies. LOL Thanks for the travel back in time. Hugs, Andie

So glad to know I'm not alone! :)
Alyce...exactly...it gave me a serious crisis when I was young.
Stephen...no. I need to, I'm overwhelmed but I really want to read it.
Andie...so true about Left Behind! I do remember reading some other end of the world books that freaked me out when I was young as well

One day my parents went out for a walk while we were napping and I thougt they were raptured and I was left behind. I started freaking out about what would happen when I refused the mark!
