I popped to the cinema this weekend for the first time in months, to watch Signs, starring the ever-marvellous Mel Gibson. It was simply the scariest thing I have ever seen. Anticipation for the film with palpable, and 20 seconds into the first scene, a girl in the front row shrieked “Oh my bloody god” as a dog barked mildly. As Mel, brandishing a knife, got closer and closer to an alien in one scene, I covered my face and peeked through my hands. The swipes of the knife grew louder, the drums beat faster, and at the climax I managed to let out an enormously girly yelp which echoed aroudn the whole cinema.
It’s quite something to have the whole cinema laughing at you.
