Everyone has their own fears. Some are more rational than others. Personally, I am terrified of pigeons. And bugs. OK, so pretty much anything with wings. Also, rejection. Sorry, too real?
My point is, who am I to judge a dog that’s scared of a can of Coke Zero? So in light of Howl-oween, here are some pawtential antagonists you might find in a horror movie, if dogs were the producers.
1. A PLASTIC BAG
First of all this is a teenie weenie dog, and to shorties like us (I’m 4’11 so I include myself), EVERYTHING is terrifying. This bag is flying on its own. It’s basically a ghost. A BAG OF GHOSTS. There it is. That’s the title.
When I see balloons I think, “Oh no. There’s going to be a party.” This is terrifying for any introvert (dog or hooman). Also, I can’t even imagine how loud a balloon popping is for a dog. So yes, a movie full of balloons is a scary movie indeed.
4. THE VACUUM CLEANER
AKA the TERROR MACHINE. Pawhaps dogs aren’t as scared of the actual vacuum cleaner itself as they are of what’s inside of it. A scary movie starring a GIANT DUST BUNNY? I’d see that.
9. A CELL PHONE
OK, honestly, it’s 2015. I won’t even act like this is not my exact reaction when my phone rings. So yes, a movie in which all of the characters are constantly getting phone calls WITHOUT WARNING TEXTS could totally be in the horror genre.
