Things You Shouldn't Do After Watching a Scary Movie

The Top Ten

1 Go to Bed/Sleep

I had a nightmare last night I was at a school and this girl wanted to inject me with poison. I ran everywhere and she followed me it was so scary she almost got me I had to escape the school but when ever I tried she was at the door it was HORRIBLE. But she never got me THANK GOD! CURSE YOU SIGNS. (Alien movie)

True.
One time, I was watching and talking to my friends about a creepypasta. Once I went home, its nearly bedtime. Aw crap. I can't sleep since I knew I would have nightmares. But on the other hand I'm also very scared since my only source of light when its bedtime is this dim pink night light. Sometimes, I'm even afraid to go to the bathroom! (I know its no. 2 but number 1 is more true about me life). The night goes on well. But thinking about creepypasta just make me horrified.

I haven't actually watched horror movies, but I do watch scary videos. Last night around 11:00 I watched a scary video. After going to bed, I went to sleep only to wake up around 3 o' clock in the morning for seemingly no reason and have horrible images of the black eyes from the video stuck in my head. It was another 40 minutes before I fell asleep, only to wake up AGAIN! If that's enough to give me sleep maintenance insomnia, just imagine if I actually watched a horror movie! - allamassal

This is why I always use my blanket no matter what

2 Go to the Bathroom

I always look behind the shower curtain than I turn on the hallway lights then I leave the door open and pee then flush really quietly then wash my hands quietly then dry my hands, turn off the bathroom light and lean on the wall while turning off the hallway lights then I run the rest of the way to my room then slam the door shut then look in my closet. But I still feel like the killers gonna get me laugh out loud. But just always remember that a killer can't just enter your house out of the blue. Like before you watched the movie no one was in your house so after no one will still be in your house.

Mirror mirror on the wall!
So the ghost can kill you from two sides now! :P

Whenever I'm trying to go to the bathroom (like after Blair Witch Project), I sprint accross my room to it. I slam the door and quietly turn on the lights. I don't FLUSH that might attract the witches attention. Quietly wash my hands, then turn off the light slowly then RUN to my room where I sleep under the covers

Ya I remember having to pee and walking in my mom's room on the scary part of a nightmare on elm street - Puppytart

5 Get Something From the Closet

Whether it is after a scary movie or not my closet is so dark and I have this secret room in my closet and I feel like an evil wizard is gonna jump out and kill me.

Yeah. I agree. What if something jumps out or as you guys all might know closets can be pretty dark inside.

Takes me a while to open mine because I get scared :'(

This is totally the worst!

8 Take a Shower/Bath

Holy! I did this after watching Michael Myers. I was scared to death. And, I was in the house alone. Scariest shower of my life. And right, as someone else said,... Norman Bates.

Norman Bates can get you there. - booklover1

It is so creepy because it's like you feel that someone like samara, Freddy, Jason, Michael, or Reagan will just kill you- in the shower!

Tyga can be peeping from outside the window. - AlphaQ

10 Think/ remember about it while you go to bed

Who would do this! I mean whenever I watch a scary movie and go to bed, for some reason I always start thinking about the movie! When this happens I started getting a feeling that a ghost is in my room.

Definitely frightening! Just sitting alone in a dark room, waiting to go to sleep.

I just saw a video of people playing slender man, thought "this isn't so scary" went to bed like I regularly do. Remembered slender man. Couldn't sleep. Was overreactive about every thing

I watched scarem queens and said hahaa not so scary this director should be rubbish haha not so scary hahaa and then I went to sleep I rembered it and I said MUMMY THE DİRECTOR İS PREFECT MOMMY and my mom was downstairs and I ran dowstairs

12 Look Under The Bed

It was my unforgettable experience.i was watching the grudge3 at night with lights off in my room,suddenly my T.V. remote control dropped down to my bed.first I didn't dare to pick it. Then movie break gave me a chance to pick it.when I watch under my bed my face became red.two bright eyes were watching me. I ran toward my hall & yelled ghost! Ghost! & turned on the lights,my mother and elder brother woke up.i said there is someone under my bed!
When they saw, it was cat.

13 Turn Off All the Lights In Your House During Nighttime

In this creepy game that I like called Silent Dark which revolves around keeping a horrifying alien out of your house or just like the nite owl from adventure time in your dreams and if its in your dreams that means that it will kill you and remember turn the lights on at nightt

I always leave the bathroom light on - JaysTop10List

If I ever did, I'd run as fast as I could to any of the beds

So scary there's a game called nightime boo so its night and whenevr you turn of the lights in your house a vampire comes so scary

14 Watch Another Scary Movie

Hey, I just watched the Shining! Now I'm gonna watch The Exorcist, The Grudge, Friday the 13th, and Nightmare on Elm Street!

I do agree. But if you watch many at one time, their shock value will go down. - dureckl

True! Also IF you would watch another one don't watch another one. Or another one. Or even another one. And a other one...

Then lights out
