Scariest Book Or Movie


Congratulations to "Dawn S.", the winner in the JRS Halloween giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

Movies can be scary. The visual impact. The sound.

I'll share a couple of my all-time scariest scenes. Granted, the scare factor is compounded by youth, but growing up hasn't made me any more immune to watching these.

"One one thousand, two one thousand, three one thousand..."

     The clown from the original Poltergeist

"Want your boat, Georgie?"

     Pennywise in the original IT.

Now, let's talk books. I once got a hold of The Amityville Horror novel. I didn't need the visual. The book scared me enough.

Some romantic thrillers can be very scary. Those are for the readers and viewers who want their HEA to come with a little something chilling on the side.

How about you? Is there a movie or a book that scared the heck out of you at any stage in your life?

  4. Hi Janet. I never actually saw The Exorcist, but that was probably because I had a glimpse of Linda Blair's head spinning around and said..."Ummm no." LOL.

    That's a good one, Mary!

    I can't believe that happened to you, Donna. You'll always remember that movie.

  5. I don't read scary. Can't handle it. But scariest movie is Conjuring or Excorist. Also Annabelle is pretty scary.

  7. Amityville horror. Couldn't finish the book. It's a true story. Nothing scarier than true story of evil spirits.

  8. I haven't watched many horror movies as an adult, but Poltergeist was scary when I was a kid. I loved the movie 1408. I didn't find it scary, but it was really good.

  10. When I was a kid I used to watch Creature Feature with Dr. Paul Bearer on channel 44 in Tampa. My mom had crocheted me a blanket. I used to throw it over my head and watch the scary movie through the gaps in the stitching. It made me feel safe. LOL

  15. I do not watch horror movies because I will have nightmares forever. When I was a teenager, decades ago, I saw the Incredible Shrinking Man. His fight with the spider was a bit much. On TV one night when I was babysitting, There was some old movie with a saber tooth tiger jumping out of tree. We lived next door and I don't think I ever ran home so fast, sure one would jump out at me. So no, I do not watch scary movies. The raptors in Jurassic Park were bad enough.
