Halloween Influences

I decided to share some books, movies, and tv shows I like to read and watch around halloween, or anytime I want something thrilling.

Shadow of the Fox was one of my favorite books as a child. I'm pretty sure it's not scary anymore but it used to scare the hec out of me.

Lockdown was one of my favorite books read in 2009. The world the Smith created was so realistic that the week I read it I felt clausterphobic and nervous for a few days, which never happens!

A Circle of Souls is scary in a totally different way. It's a mystery, with main characters who are trying to find the murderer of a little girl. It's frightening because it could happen. I was trying to solve the crime right along with the characters, hoping that justice would be served.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth was addicting! I read it while imaging the unconsecrated outside my house.... it was awesome!

The Devouring, which I just reviewed.

The Ghosts of Ashbury High was so clever and real. The scariest part was that it wasn't fantasy, all that happened could really happen, and you *points* and me could be ghosts.

TV shows

The Walking Dead of course: The 1st episode just aired last week.

Hey Arnold - I love the Haunted Train episode (it used to freak me out)

Goosebumps - There was a free episode on iTunes this week.

Are You Afraid Of The Dark - I miss this old show too


Stephen King movies - Cujo, The Shining, The Storm of the Century

The Ring - I saw this back when I needed my Dad to watch scary movies with me. Unfortunetly, he always fell asleep and left me to fend for myself (he didn't literally leave, he just wasn't any help) *shakes head*

28 Days Later - This was the first movie I saw that I could watch the whole way through without needing my Dad to stay awake *stares pointedly at Dad*

Jeepers Creepers 2 - I didn't finish this until this year, I couldn't finish it the first time I saw it, now it's just fun to watch.

The Children of the Corn - I actually thought this was funny, but it's still a movie I like to watch around this time of the year.

Zombieland - Again, this is more funny than scary, but there are a couple of scary ugly zombie scenes.

  1. The Forest of Hands and Teeth was really good. I agree with you. Very scare too at points.
