While I was growing up, my mom was quite strict on letting us watch something on TV which was only ‘appropriate’ for our age. While everyone else was enjoying the hit 80s TV Series (Michael Knight, North and South etc), I was stuck with Heidi and Candy Candy. How uncool was that!

At the age of 7 I went to my first movie ever: OUT OF AFRICA. I think I slept half way through it. Sad, but true.

A while later my parents decided to go out alone one night and let us sisters bond while watching a nice family movie on video. My father went to the video store and asked the clerk for recommendations. He explained that we would be alone and it had to be something entertaining. She suggested: POLTERGEIST. My father  was in a hurry and didn’t really pay attention to it. Seriously??? All the proper PG that my mother had been doing for the last years went down the drain…We were alone in the house and we had to endure watching POLTERGEIST. I can not begin to describe what this movie did to me. For the first few years (yes, years) I panicked that I would be swallowed by a tree and that zombies would come out of swimming pools (this sounds very weird but it makes perfectly sense to anyone who has seen it).

Then, during one of our Christmas family vacation to Germany, we saw MOMO. After MOMO, my nightmares shifted slightly and focused on the bold men in grey. I could not sleep with the lights turned off as I was confident that they would come after me (again I apologize to my non german friends for not making any sense)

The only positive outcome of these movies was that I never complained to my mom that she was too strict with the PG thing, ever again.

Everything happens for a reason, right??
