Btw, it's not that i necessarily hate the PA movies. (Even though i kind of do, lol) It's that i love "real" scares and not just when something pops out that makes you jump. Real scares are about building suspense without gimmicks and the payoffs are about something substantial. Something that lasts with you. Not just some cheap shot that made you jump for a moment.
That, and the PA movies were a big shot in the arm to this whole ghost craze. Ghost Hunters, Ghost Mine, Ghost blah blah blah.
I'll give you my impression of every one of those shows...
"Did you hear that?'
"I just felt a chill!"
Ha! I'm riveted by such drama, lol.
That being said, i can still very much appreciate the first one and really understand why people love it even though it may not have been my cup of tea. I tend to be an exploitation, slasher and splatter fan within the genre. So ghost stories are not really my thing. With one giant gaping exception... Poltergeist! Oh, and i love classic Hammer and Universal horror.
P.S. My Wife actually solved the 1963 game. (If that's the answer) She's convinced it is so the prize would go to her.
