So, we've gone from "is this normal"? to "anyone who doesn't react that that is weird" pretty quickly

That is one reason I think it's important to ponder this.  It's important to understand one's own personal reasons for reacting or not reacting to filmic animal torture and death (particularly pet death, since pets are often viewed as "one of the family".)

When I started the thread I merely wanted to know if I was as weird as I thought I was and it surprised me, in a way that was very "healthifying" to my mind - to find I was not the only one who squicked at such things.  But it also helped me realize the whys and wherefores of these feelings.  And that also helped me.

I want to put a "like" on every name that chose to post on this thread for that reason. But that would look silly and insincere. So just take it as intended in the way I've expressed it. And again...thank you. :D

I don't think you derailed the thread at all; I wanted to know the feelings everyone had including those people who don't feel squicked.  Please, no apology necessary...but thanks for caring. :)

Yeah no one's offended Doc, just saying the point of the thread is "I react to films in this way and here's why" not "your reaction is stupid/lame/evil",

"I" statements all the way basically. :)

I just touched on something in another thread, and it reminded me that I have serious issues with plane crash scenes. I have a pretty bad phobia of flying, including recurring nightmares of falling out of the night sky, strapped into my seat in a broken-in-half fuselage. I flew quite a bit for my previous job, and I would start getting the nightmares about a week before I was supposed to fly, every time. I'm not one of those outwardly nervous flyers, but it's a bit a rough ride psychologically.

Anyway, crash scenes along the lines of Castaway, LOST, Fearless, Final Destination, and Knowing are pretty excruciating to watch. It's like my worst fear graphically depicted in all its terrifying sights and sounds. And those kind of scenes tend to really stick with me for a while.

The shot-out windows scene that made a crash seem imminent in Snakes on a Plane was far scarier to me than the snakes!

Maybe because it wasn't shitty CGI?

Probably more because I like snakes a lot.

I can't stand anything with the EYE. Any kind of eye-horror makes me wince.  Audition, Opera, Dead and Buried... who boy.

Don't EVER watch An Andalusian Dog. (I can't spell the damn thing in Spanish.)

My big thing is mouths. Whenever a character has really wierd teeth or screwed up mouth, particularly with sharklike teeth, that just messes me up. The Devil's Advocate isn't that good of a movie, but it sure fucked me up royally. Same thing with the Christmas episode of Tales From the Crypt 'And All Through The House'.

Things like that don't have that effect on me, but if it's a bad CG effect, it annoys me more than most bad CG does.  Something about lazily deforming the mouth for a cheap scare just ticks me off through its overuse.
