I generally find that my imagination is way worse than anything a movie can show me. It's usually in the hours after a scary movie that I'm actually frightened enough to check the doors and windows, not during the movie itself. Like when I watched Dawn of the Dead the other night.
|Zombies Eat Ur Brainz|
Most "scary" movies affect me that way. The only times I can remember being truly scared during a movie were the remake of Cape Fear (which I watched with my best friend in high school, and I think her fear was contagious)...
|Bobby DeNiro is pretty darn scary.|
|Hello, Mr. Alien|
|Even the cover is scary!|
The bottom line is that there is no place scarier than your imagination (okay, maybe Tim Burton's imagination) and if you want to frighten yourself silly this Halloween, then head to the nearest bookstore or library and find a book that will truly terrify you.
Today there are two audience participation questions.
- Which scare you more, books or movies?
- What book would you recommend for fright night reading?
