Laurel, you're certainly forgiven for any absence. As far as the scary image, I wonder if you've ever seen that part of the movie, "Forbidden Planet", when the monster appears? It happens briefly, in an outline of snaking electric tendrils and sparks as it attempts to breach the security fence. Now, that was scary!
