30 Days of SPN - Day 16

Another short list. Not a very interesting one, though. Now, if they'd said "an episode that grossed you out", that might be harder, if not any more interesting.

Day 16 - An episode that scared you
You know, everyone makes fun of the monster madness ghost truck, but I found it actually kind of freaky. I don’t usually find anything on SPN scary, as such. Or even tense, really, because it’s all about the journey, not the results. It’s not as stressful when the important thing is who they become and not where they get to.

Anyway, I found the truck scary because it was inhuman, I think. You can’t read it the way you read a human or something being played by a human, even with makeup on, and that’s threatening. Also its brute force in attack – when Cassie was standing at the window, looking out at it gunning its engine at her, I thought that if I were a monster killer truck, I’d just ram the house and keep going until the house was firewood and she was dead. I mean, what’s going to stop it? Salt across the doorway? Not if the door and the whole wall isn’t there anymore. It felt unstoppable. I still don’t know why it didn’t just demolish the place. I guess because it got the memo that Dean’s women aren’t automatically doomed? Idek.

I agree about the truck. That scene where it mows down the one dude on the side of the road and the dude's face is all mangled actually disturbed me quite a bit for quite a while. Also, I live in Florida and people around here love to tailgate and a lot of big trucks have nearly killed me personally over my lifetime.

Scary isn't the same as disturbing, though - the list of episodes that disturb me is so long it's not even worth mentioning, lol.

Oh, totally, the kills on the road were just ... erg. *eyes squeezed shut* I've never been to Florida, but yeah – personal experience exacerbates the situation, I'm sure. I mean, I know the episode itself is one of the ones to excoriate, and I agree to an extent, but just because it's a big scary truck is no reason not to acknowledge that it's a big scary truck! Maybe it's a city vs country thing? Who knows.

Thank goodness that wasn't the question! I'd have been here for days O.o

And it's terrible, because you're watching and going, "That's so disturbing ... ooh ... and ... really interesting.... This is wrong on so many levels.... Yay! I mean boo."

Oh! YES, in that case. Totally, totally, totally. The maggots in the burger? And MBV was just ... and ... yeah. Totally.

We need to install a Missouri in the writing room to smack Kripke with a spoon when he starts chortling.

OMG YES.

D.N.W.!!!!

How I always forget about all these things? The story must be even stronger than I thought it was, to overwrite it all in my head. Or the pretty is really distracting? And the crying? Idek.

It's the story. It's INSANELY distracting, as evidenced very strongly by the fact that IDONOTWATCHHORROR. Ever. Ever. Ever.

Ever.

Agreed, and agreed. I mean, I don't watch horror because it's usually pointless, and on top of that it's horrible. Story changes everything.
