Why I'm up so late

Have you seen previews for the new movie Quarantine?

Well, it's based on a Spanish movie called REC (as in "Record"). Yeah, we got a copy of it, subtitles and all, and watched it tonight. Can I just say that it has got to be by far the scariest effing movie I have ever seen! Seriously. I can't remember the last time I screamed during a movie. I'm sure our neighbors wondered what was going on over here because I kept screaming. Honestly it's a miracle that Marshy didn't wake up.

But anyway, if you are looking for a good scare, watch it. We heard from several people online who have watched it that it is even freakier if you turn the subtitles off. Yeah, then you don't know what's going on....unless you speak Spanish Spanish (as opposed to Argentine Spanish or Mexican Spanish). Also, I don't recommend watching it with the subtitle on if you are opposed to a lot of swearing. Because yes, they translate all of those words into English.

And that is why I am still awake. Because I can't go to sleep. Oh, did I mention it leaves a lot of the blood and guts and gorey details to the imagination? Yeah, another reason I'm not sleeping.

I don't see how you could be scared by a movie with subtitles. Let me explain: I get so involved with reading that I always miss what's happening on the screen. That's why I just can't stand to watch a movie with subtitles, but you've got me very intrigued.
