Happy Halloween Eve! I cannot believe that it will soon be here & gone, hopefully a better time for everyone this time next year. The moon is absolutely stunning this evening, I cannot wait for tomorrow night. In celebration or perhaps lament, here is a list of Halloween-y questions, enjoy.
The theme song from Halloween, it’s my year-round ringtone. John Carpenter actually wrote the music for many of his films which I think is incredible, not only did he create some of the most notable horror flicks, he wrote some pretty creepy music.
A person, no matter what monsters I can conjure up in my mind, mankind remains the only real monster. Or fire, I’m pretty afraid of fire but then it wouldn’t be dark would it?
Of course, nothing remotely cool even happened but it was released by Parker Brothers so as a discerning 12 year old, I figured that would be the case. In general, I am not very superstitious when it comes to the Ouija Board, I have various pieces that are Ouija themed & they don’t creep me out.
Dracula or most any vampire character remains my favorite monster. Favorite horror villain would be Pinhead from Hellraiser. I had a huge crush on Pinhead when I was an adolescent, the actor out of costume is kind of nerdy looking though 😛 My favorite slasher villain is Michael Myers.
I think it has to be the statues constantly falling off of the shelf in my hallway. I still don’t know why nothing seems to stay on there. It’s weird to be sitting all alone & hearing something drop to the ground without any indication as to why.
I mean, ever since my elderly neighbor passed away & was left alone in her apartment for a few days, I think my building is haunted. I think I would be fine spending the night in a haunted house as long as it wasn’t old & dirty. Like those old asylums that just look filthy…gross me out.
It depends, like the Ouija board thing, not at all. If I’m driving to work & there isn’t any traffic do I sometimes think the rapture happened? Occasionally. Flickering street lights weird me out, I think they are supposed to be bad luck. Crows, I don’t love seeing a pack of crows in the yard. Walking over graves, you know, just your regular superstitions 😀
Funny story, depending on your humor; when I get especially tired I get a dark spot in one of my eyes due to my MS. It used to scare me a lot because it does look like something was standing right in the corner of my eye. Thankfully, it’s not a homicidal maniac but a chronic illness instead 😛 Usually though, I don’t see things that aren’t there.
Skinwalkers because that shit is real. I’m not talking that skinwalker ranch bullshit, I’m talking real witch doctors inhabiting the living. There’s too much old magic in the desert & on reservations to not believe in them. Have you ever driven across the Navajo Nation in the middle of the night? It’s unpleasant.
I do not enjoy needlessly grotesque body horror like the Saw movies but I love a cheesecake slasher because they are so obviously fake. If it’s a choice between a thriller or horror both of which I have not seen, I would go thriller because horror movies are just getting too realistic these days.
Yes…? Do I believe in Hell? Not really but I believe that there are perhaps different dimensions where spirits could exist. I’m also a pretty firm believer in reincarnation, unfortunately (that shit sounds exhausting) so am unsure of what kind of spirits would inhabit said spirit world.
No, I’m not super into all of that. I mean, I think science has kind of ruined witch craft at this point. Which makes very little sense seeing as how religion has survived all the advancements in technology & general knowledge but who am I to judge?
I don’t think so but also, I don’t know how many times in my life I have been truly scared. I’ve lived a pretty quiet life thus far. I have to admit though, I will never live alone in a house. My fear of a home invasion is probably mostly irrational but it’s why I keep renting a top floor apartment. Who is going to get me – Spider Man?!
Probably? Clearly it did not leave very much of an impression so I can imagine that nothing crazy happened.
Not so much anymore but there was a period of time that I thought demons & possession would be a much greater issue in my life. But alas, watch me get possessed now.
Probably just leave 😛 I mean, why wait around to find out if someone is in your house or not?! Also though, I wouldn’t want to leave my cats behind so maybe I would just hide…
Halloween, I would survive – the guy can’t even run, he just walks at you. Not even speed walking, like strolling – how did he manage to kill like two dozen people?
Cat – you have such a variety of options that can be modified for any stage of your life.
Been there, done that and it wasn’t actually that scary. I grew up in a small town, the cemetery was right on the way to school but it wasn’t a creepy place. I think that it depends on the cemetery, some are so new and organized – would I go to a graveyard in Southern Louisiana at night? Absolutely not.
Science. I can’t get into the zombie thing – it just isn’t going to happen, we will see an Ebola or smallpox apocalypse before zombies.
I love a good Halloween party, I was a shy kid & always got a little stressed out during trick or treating. I loved the big party we would have at school with apple bobbing, crafts & homemade treats.
The final girl but only because I was also the killer – plot twist. But in all honesty, we all saw it coming. Ree, ree, ree, ree!
I don’t think so? If I watch a horror movie & can’t fall asleep then it’s not like watching a cartoon will make me forget what I watched. I can fixate on something to the point that everything else gets blocked out. I’m not someone who finds a lot of satisfaction in temporary distraction. Although, on any given night I do enjoy some cartoons just in general.
I could be yelling or I could be sleeping. I get so irritated when a character (usually a girl) will be running from the villain and then biffs it over seemingly nothing. All you had to do was run and not fall, moron. That really incenses me and I feel like every director everywhere just assumes that females are prone to tripping over nothing. Is that a trope? It’s grossly overused.
I don’t like scaring people. I am that person who would do it one time and cause someone to have a heart issue. We do little office pranks but they are genuinely funny, nobody is actually scared. That being said, I don’t mind a good scare – a couple of days ago I saw a sign on my drive home that said Horror with an arrow & decided to check it out. There was nothing there! I severely was disappointed, maybe they weren’t set up yet.
The Shining, if you think that the movie is scary – the book is ten times more terrifying. There are so many details about the hotel and the labyrinth that weren’t included in the movie that add so much to the atmosphere.
I was 11 when I watched Salem’s Lot, that was the benefit of having older brothers and sisters who could do things like drive to get contraband books and movies.
An elephant, is the first one that I can recall…? You know, my parents never did the pumpkin baby thing & I think I am a little bitter about it.
Crippling depression. But seriously, I am disappointed that Halloween is almost cancelled this year, I know that lots are still celebrating & I hope it’s still a good time.
I have two torties, they have black and orange markings – they are the perfect Halloween-esque cats. Also, total party poopers because they refuse to wear the witch hats that I purchased for them.
I hope you are having a spooky Halloween Eve, let me know what your plans are for Halloween this year 🧡
