Don’t look under your bed

Hola everyone.


How are we all doing today? I hope so far your Friday has been great and that you had a fantastic week. I, for my part, am super excited for the weekend, as I’m going to another gig tomorrow, which I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time. Obviously, I’ll tell you all about it in my upcoming posts. But here’s what I wanted to talk to you about today…

.

Have you ever had a childhood trauma? Or something that happened to you in your childhood, maybe even something really dumb, that kind of marked you for the rest of your life? And completely changed everything? Because I do. And it might sound really stupid, but honestly, I’m just stating facts here. For many many many years of my life, I have been afraid of stuff under my bed. Monsters hiding there. Ghosts. A sock in the wrong colour. Whatever. And because of that, I made my mum look under my bed, countless amounts of times. Of course, I knew that there wasn’t something, but that’s what kids do, right? I always knew where that pure and intense fear had come from, where it had all started, the root of it all. When I was about six or seven years old, I had watched a movie that basically scared the living crap out of me. It had been late at night, because I’ve always been a night owl, and I definitely wasn’t meant to watch that movie. But still, I did. The whole thing, on my own, at night. Sounds like the worst idea ever to you? Well, yeah, it was. And until yesterday, all I could remember was that that movie was the scariest thing I had ever seen in my life. Now, pay attention to the “until yesterday”.

.

I found it. I don’t really know how I ended up searching for that movie at 3 am in the morning, but I did and I found it. And I can’t believe that this horror of a movie, that childhood trauma I’ve been dragging with me all these years, that stupid thing that has been floating around someplace in my head all this time, is a Disney Channel movie for kids. I mean, what? I’m sorry, but that definitely isn’t a kids’ movie. You kidding me? And here’s the craziest thing… I googled “horror movie siblings monster under the bed” and looked at the film posters and when I saw the first one, I immediately knew it was that one. And suddenly all these memories came flowing back to me and I could remember what the movie was all about. And to be honest, I’m pretty sure some of you will even know it, so here it is:

dont-look-under-the-bed-1999

I’ve only got one question… why? Just why? Why is that a kids’ movie? Who thought it was a good idea to make kids watch a movie about monsters hiding under their bed in a different dimension? That’s never a good idea, never. Do you know how often my mum had to look under my bed because of this? Too many times. I mean, yeah, now I know that the movie isn’t really a horror, but when you’re six, you forget about all the nice parts. So here’s the story in short: there are these two kids, sister and brother, and the girl is a bit too grownup for her age. And suddenly the Boogeyman (again, just why? This is a kids’ movie, ma’am) comes and drags her brother under her bed and she is left with his imaginary friend, that only kids can see (???). So, they try to get the brother back and go to that other dimension, but during that, the imaginary friend also starts to turn into a Boogeyman. At the end, they find the brother and find out that all the Boogeymen had once been imaginary friends of some other kids – or with that specific one, the girl’s one – who had been forgotten about too early. So they all start believing in them again. The end.

.

There’s some background story of how the sister is acting so serious already because her brother has leukemia and she feels like she has to be the strong sister now, so I get how the whole movie actually has a really deep, interesting and also important meaning, but what the actual hell? It was still a freaking scary movie. Go on and google the movie and look up the Boogeyman. And then imagine seeing that as a young kid at night. I dare you.

.

Obviously, I know I’m being very dramatic right now, but I feel like I need to emphasize the fact that I was young and scared. For years. But at the same time, I’m so glad I finally found the movie. I’m not sure why I didn’t google it earlier, but hey, at least we’re here now. I feel like by finding it, I turned my own Boogeyman back to something less scary. Thank god.

.

Anyway, here’s the little story of my scarred childhood and the monster under my bed. It had been Disney all along. I should’ve known. If any of you have ever seen that movie, please do tell me if it also scared you as much as it did me. I’d love to hear your stories. And until then I hope you enjoyed reading my story. As always, I wish you all a lovely weekend and thanks for reading. x

My favorite Disney movies

Hola everyone.


I don’t know why, but today I’m in some kind of Disney mood, so I thought why not talk about my favorite movies. And I know, there are a lot of movies out there and to be honest, they are all amazing. The weird thing is, I have to cry every single time I watch a Disney movie. They are just too cute and superemotional. And they make me happy. And yes, I’m 20 years old and I still go to the cinema and watch Disney movies sitting in a room full of young kiddos and their parents. And I regret nothing. Because whatever people tell you, you are never ever ever too old to watch a Disney movie. Never.

.

So, enough said. Let’s take a look at my favorite movies. Enjoy.

.

  • Bambi
    • I can’t even tell you how sad and cute this movie is at the same time. And it’s about animals, which makes it so much cuter. Can you believe this movie was made in 1942? That’s crazyyyy. And so damn amazing.

 

  • Sleeping Beauty
    • To be honest, Aurora is my favorite Disney princess. I fell in love with how she found her prince and I just wanted to be like her. And she’s just too gorgeous. And seriously, having three fairy godmothers is just too cool.

 

  • The Aristocats
    • This story is just too cute. And I love the three kittens. Actually, I want to name one of my future cats Toulouse (the name is so damn cute). And I just really like the whole movie, besides the two geese, they are pretty annoying.

 

  • The Lion King
    • Let’s be honet, who doesn’t like that movie? I still remember when I was younger, mum had this friend who would visit us everyday and watch this movie with me. And this one is actually the first movie I ever watched in the cinema, so it has a special place in my heart. Besides that, the scene when Mufasa died breaks my heart every time and then the cute love story and the super amazing soundtrack heals it again.

 

  • The Emperor’s New Groove
    • This is seriously one of the funniest and weirdest Disney movies ever made. I mean, it’s about a king who becomes a lama. That is strange enough. And it has so much sarcasm in it and I just love it.

 

  • Every single Pirates of the Caribbean movie
    • Can you believe that this is a Disney movie? Because I can’t. I just love every single of them. Johnny Depp is breathtaking and super weird. Orlando Bloom is super hot. And Keira Knightley is super cool. It’s just an amazing movie series.

 

  • Wall-E
    • This the one movie that I watched together with my grandpa. He died after this and every time I watch this movie, it reminds me of him. So it’s really emotional for me. And besides that, the movie is super emotional on its own and super cute. I love it.

 

  • Tangled
    • I always loved Rapunzel, but this movie is just so cool. And she’s such a strong character and that mess everything so interesting and exciting. I remember that I told my parents I wanted to watch this movie with them And the were like come on, we are adults. And at the end, they loved it and my mum even cried. So yeah, like I said, you’re never too old to watch a Disney movie.

 

  • Brave
    • I watched this movie one evening alone and I swear, I cried my eyes out. I have a really strong relationship with my mum and this movie is all about that and it just made me so emotional. If you ever have the chance, please watch this movie. Preferably together with your mum.

 

  • Big Hero 6
    • All I can say is that I really really really want to have my own Baymax. He looks like a huge, super fluffy marshmallow and I can’t resist that. And he’s also just too cute. I really love that movie.

 

  • Tomorrowland
    • I know, this is another real-life-movie and it’s such a cool movie. I love this kind of sci-fi movies and I just really enjoyed watching it. It makes you dream about the craziest and cooles things and I love that.

 

  • Inside Out
    • This storyline is just so cool, I can’t believe it. How can somebody come up with that? And it’s also so accurate, it’s fascinating. This one is really a must for everyone who likes Disney.

.

Soooo, there you go. These are my favorite Disney movies. I can already tell you that I forgot one or two, but hey, overall those are the most important ones. If any of you like the same movies as me or want to chat, I’m here. And until then, as always, I hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for reading. x
