If you don't mind me asking, what made you scared of Chicken Run?
hahaha omg ok so basically, I was raised vegetarian; my mom is vegetarian and I was taught from a young age to have a lot of empathy for animals (…I’ve since fallen off the vegetarian wagon but I don’t eat much meat and when I do, I only eat free-range eggs/grass-fed beef etc). You see where this is going.
So I saw Chicken Run for the first time when I was pretty young and it straight-up terrified me, the whole concept is very sinister and tbh it reminds me to this day of like…a concentration camp?! Like, the chickens have secret meetings and try to dig tunnels out with spoons and shit, and their loved ones disappear and literally go into ovens, but they don’t know they’re ovens, they just know nobody ever comes out! It was so scary to me, a good movie but SCARY.
Then again, I was a weird kid and toddler me was inexplicably terrified of Mr. Noodle from Sesame Street, to the point where I would run away screaming whenever he walked onscreen. My mom decided to just stick with other PBS Kids shows, yes I was a PBS kid (DRAGON TALES WAS MY SHIT).
