Confession: I’m a wimp. A big wimp. I can’t watch movies where the bad guys slither/crawl/have more than four legs. And then there are movies that play with your mind. Those are the worst.

Me after watching “The Prestige”
Last weekend my sister sat me down and made me watch an episode of DR. WHO and I swear I have never been so freaked out in my life.*
*Um…season 3 episode 10, in case you’re interested.
It was about these weeping stone angels (the sort you’d find in graveyards)–but they weren’t actually angels–THEY WERE ALIENS! !!! ! !!! They had evolved into creatures with the perfect defense mechanism: if you looked at them, they didn’t move. Like mario ghosts. So you think they’re stone until you turn away, and then the aliens attack and SUCK YOU INTO THE PAST AND THEY LIVE OFF OF YOUR POTENTIAL YEARS ENERGY!!!
So when you first see the statue, it looks like this:
Turn away, and look back, and it looks like THIS:
And then after you BLINK YOU GET THIS!!!
The episode ends with shots of famous statues, and Dr. Who’s voiceover:
“Don’t blink. Don’t even blink. Blink and you’re dead. They are fast, faster than you could believe. Don’t turn your back, don’t look away, and DON’T BLINK!”
