I managed to throw my back out again, so I'm currently riding high on the Vicodin/muscle relaxer wave, and I keep thinking really weird thoughts.
So I decided I would try and parlay this weirdness into something productive: What is the weirdest movie scene you've ever seen? One that really stuck with you? Like tripped out, balls to the wall, gotta sleep with a night light weird?
For me it would have to be Robert Blake in Lost Highway. If you've seen the movie.. you know the scene. You know it.
Imagine yourself in Bill Pullman's character's place. Imagine this.. thing, accosting you like this, surrounded by people, and suddenly you are more alone and threatened than you have ever been in your life.
Robert Blake's alleged crimes not withstanding, he is legitimately one of the scariest men I have ever seen, compliments of this film. Is it because his eyes are so black and his face is so white? Is it the way his eyes are open just a little too wide on top, while the bottom lid has not dropped down far enough? Is it the smile, that comes too wide, and leaves too abruptly? I don't know.
But imagine that at the foot of your bed.
Now please, share your personal moments of tripping out, even whilst clear headed (as I was when I watched Lost Highway); I would love to hear what scares you!
