Trick or Treat



Hello Halloween blog hoppers and thank you Jeremy Bates for hosting such a fabulous event. I hope you enjoy my blog and give me a follow, I shall follow you back.

I like to write about things that go bump in the night, so naturally I LOVE Halloween! It's a rule in my house that we must watch Night of the Living Dead. In fact I was a zombie for Halloween last year *cue the girl who screams running into the cemetery*.

 

Also, Sleepy Hollow (1999 film directed by Tim Burton). The Headless Horseman storyline was done extremely well.
You have to watch (or read) The Amityville Horror for the ultimate creep and sleep with the blanket over your head experience.



and some notable mentions...
Rosemary's Baby
Carrie
Bram Stoker's Dracula
The Wolfman
The Vampire's Assistant
Beetlejuice (Beetlejuice...don't say it)
An American Werewolf in London

For a spooky Halloween read go visit my blogger buddy, Crystal Collier, An Interview with Death.

Be sure to take some candy before you leave!


 
What is on your Halloween movie or book list? And what are you going to be for Halloween?

I love watching the Halloween and Scream movies. They're just fun to watch. Now a scary movie for me is SIGNS. The aliens make too much sense.

Crystal Collier said...

I LOVE Sleepy Hollow and The Wolfman--but the old one. Lon Chaney Jr is rock awesome. Our Halloween tradition is to find a new old horror movie to watch. One year it was The Brides of Dracula, and one The Creature from the Black Lagoon (which is really long and kinda boring in case you're wondering). This year I think we'll just be watching Supernatural and Vampire Diaries. *sigh* Maybe we need to get out more?

Hello! (((((hugs)))))

It’s so awesome to visit your lovely blog today on this Halloween blog hop. I think this is an awesome opportunity to meet other authors! I’m joining your blog and I hope you’ll join mine, too, so we can learn more about one another.
My favorite monster movie is Night of the Living Dead and I’m dressing up as a mime. Mime is one of the most ancient forms of theatre, appearing around the time of the Greek tragedies. I hope to perfect the art and technique of portraying a mood, idea, or narration by gestures and bodily movements. The only problem is…that I have a big mouth! LOL. It’s so nice to meet you!

Halloween Hop!
Hi! The scariest book I've ever read was "IT". It reached deep into my subconsciousness and scared the heck out of me! For Halloween I'll be dragging out my Elmo snuggy for my couch potato costume.

My favorite Halloween movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas! I just love the music from it, and Jack is pretty cool. I also loved the book Dracula. Awesome stuff.

Shelley Workinger said...

Happy Halloween Hop, Kerri - good to *meet* you ;)
You've reminded me that I need to re-watch NOTLD; I watched it in high school with a boy who spent most of the time explaining to me how he was going to defeat the zombies when they came (he had it all planned out - up on the roof because they can't climb, etc.). I'm guessing the screen version's a bit better than his ;)

Rosemary's Baby and Carrie were creepy. Beetlejuice was entertaining. Ghostbusters too.

Have a great Halloween! I'm following now.

Dropping by for the Halloween hop :-)

My favourite scary movie or book...erm well i'm not really a fan of anything scary to be honest lol! A total wimp! Though i did manage to sit through Sleepy Hollow- Johnny Depp had a lot to do with that :-D



This year i won't be dressing up until next month when i go and visit my sister in Scotland. Not a clue what i'm going to wear yet...lol.

Beetlejuice is one my faves also. We had a heck of a good time trying to sing -- Daylight Come and me wanna go home -- after a couple of beers. Funiest family vacation ever.

And, I'll pass on that candy dish. Looks like a trap.

Great visiting!!

Halloween Hop! I saw The Legend of Sleepy Hollow at a dinner/movie theater in Portsmouth, VA - it was a lot of fun, and that is a great movie. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier today, that was kind of you!

Happy Halloween!

Abby Fowers said...

Ok - I am coming here for all things haunting and exciting! My Halloween consists of taking my kids trick or treating --- which I love, but can lack in excitement. I loved Sleepy Hollow. It really was well done. And now you have intrigued me to read "Amityville Horror."

My favorite scary movies are from when I was little... Watcher in the Woods & Lady in White.

Nice to meet you! I am a new follower! :)

Sleepy Hallow was awesome! Good choices all around. I wish I wasn't such a baby about scary movies. I'd watch more if they didn't give me nightmares. (New follower)

I’m here visiting from Jeremy Bates' blog hop, and I love your blog!

My favorite scary book is IT (scared the crap out of me as a kid), movie that horrified me most was Rob Zombie’s remake of Halloween, and I did not dress up this year, because I suck. One of my favorite costumes in the past was "Dead Baby Roller Blades."

Happy Halloween!

Liz said...

I always have to watch "Nightmare Before Christmas" and "Hocus Pocus." As far as truly scary movies though, "The Descent" is by far the creepiest I've ever seen.
