Hello mister tall, dark, and terrifying

(Blog X-posted)
October is moving right along which means creepy costumes and sugar highs are just around the corner. Or is that just my plan? Surely not.

Halloween is nearly here, and it’s a good time for the things that go bump in the night. Many creatures which once would have been relegated to horror stories and movies are now featured as heroes and romantic leads, but let’s forget them for a moment and talk of the terrifying.

What flavor do you prefer your horror stories/movies? Do you like an oppressive atmosphere that keeps your shoulders hitched as you wait for the worst? Do you like the monster you never quite see so he’s worsened by your imagination? Perhaps your horror preference is the gore and the gritty details. Or maybe the psychological horror tale that worms itself into the back your mind and then begins to twist. Or perhaps your horror tastes lean toward the destruction of all hope in the face of insurmountable and unstoppable odds? (Zombie Apocalypse anyone?)

From the ghost story to the slasher film, horror is a genre with many faces and many elements. Which work for you? Do you laugh off a scary tale, or do you sleep with the lights on after a good horror flick?  It’s the month for spooky stories and frightening monsters, so please share your favorite horror movies and books! (We could all use a good scare, right?)

    I don’t like horror anything. They scare the dickens out of me – I wait years to watch a horror movie and even then, it’s in the middle of a Sunny Saturday afternoon, all shades up, my German Shephard sitting right on the couch beside me and me fully armed. Lord knows if the phone rings I will jump. Of course, give me a good murder mystery…..

    I don’t watch too many horror movies. I’m with Glenna, they are way to scary. My daughter talked me into watching Silent Hill last month. I can watch just about anything with your classic monsters (werewolf, vampire, witches etc.). But, I don’t do horror or slasher movies.

    This technology isn’t really a fresh one since it
    has been invented at around 1960s however the
    LED light during days past is low intensity red light only.
    The sky buckets bounced alarmingly for the long cable while they traveled.
    Led light bar stage Extreme Tactical Dynamics can be a
    one-stop shop for the Trailer Light bar and many other items like
    Flashlights, Deck Lights, police lights, etc.

    The Black – Berry Torch 9860 features a 5 megapixel camera which boasts
    face detection, LED flash, auto-focus and comes
    with plenty of scene modes. Beyond this we passed for restaurants
    called Burger Ranch, which had a Lego Mexican band alongside it.
