35. I'm right there with you.
My trauma was at the hands of a babysitter who let me stay up and watch a movie about killer spiders on TV when I was five. At age twelve I tried to get through a very cheesy, probably-not-very-scary movie called 'Terror Train' on a Saturday afternoon w/ my friends and ended up with my head in my lap the whole time.

I HATE scary movies and if I want to be terrified I can think about the state of the world today for free. If I'm going to pay $9, I want to leave the theatre either happy or intellectually challenged-- not afraid to go into the basement to get my laundry!

I've made it to middle age without watching horror movies and so can you. :)
