Your First R-Rated Movie Theater Experience

Today’s comment diversion is, well, it’s ripped off from William Goss’ Twitter feed, and though there’s a definite possibility he might want to use it himself for a different outlet, I’m stealing it all the same because it’s strangely appropriate to last weekend’s release of Where the Wild Things Are, but not really.

The question: What was the first R-rated movie you ever saw in a theater?

For me, it was Hellraiser II when I was 13. My father was nice enough to bring me and a friend to see it, though I honestly don’t remember anything else about the experience. Except the cenobites. And by that time, I’d already seen Hellraiser at home, so it wasn’t a particularly enlightening experience.

Hopefully, y’all have better stories to offer. Stories of childhood trauma, of betrayal, and of blood. Lots and lots of blood.
