If you grew up in the '80s as I did then there is a good chance that you were clutching the arms of your chair in theatres in spring of 1980 because the very first Friday the 13th Movie premiered in theatres across America.
It's Friday the 13th and the season of being spooked so I started to think about scary things that surround us every day. I thought about the places I've lived in the past and realize there have been certain rooms that I would avoid. Like an unfinished basement with a rickety staircase. Then there was the detached garage that I never wanted to enter. I checked with some friends and learned some of them avoid their basements too! Then I searched online and learned basement phobia is really a thing!
