Phobias at the Movies
A no-spoiler movie site that gives users the information they need to watch movies without fear. Screened for snakes, spiders, clowns, blood, dentists, puppets, dolls, vomit and needles. Users are given the when, how graphic, and duration of each scene to allow the user to watch without panic.
“My wife has emetophobia. Any time we wanted to watch a movie we were constantly asking friends or checking blogs to see if vomit occurred before starting anything. So we researched phobias and found there were others like us that just wanted to be able to relax and watch a movie. We felt that there were a lot of people that could benefit from a site like this. So we sifted through the phobias and chose the ones that we felt were the most relevant and just like that Phobias at the Movies was born.”
