Tingly Movies or Books

This week for the Express Yourself Meme is:



List the five books/movies that caused the hair to stand up on the back of your neck. This also works out, because I love lists :)

So here we go:

5) Paranormal Activity 1
Okay, in all fairness, this one wasn't so creepy. Until I got home that night, and there was an attic connected to my bedroom, and I was like "OMG, did the bedsheets just lift?"And then I curled into the fetal position, clutching my Eeyore. Not a pretty sight.

This is some terrifying stuff
4) Harrison Bergeron, by Kurt Vonnegut
Okay, so it's not a novel, but it's a short story that scared the crap out of me. It's a dystopian short story where everyone is average. Smart people have things in their ears to break off their thoughts. Athletic people are weighed down by sandbags so they're no faster or better than the people beside them.
And just as the uprising starts, it gets shot down.
This story ripped my heart out of my chest, and made me fall in love with Vonnegut's work.

3) Pet Cemetery 2
First off, the step dad killed the dog. And then there was the motorcycle scene? This movie still gives me nightmares, but really, as soon as an animal dies, I start crying.

2) Night of the Living Dummy, R.L. Stine
There is NOTHING more horrifying than an inanimate object coming to life. And when you're in middle school (or elementary), and a dummy starts torturing you...you know it's the end of the world. The Chucky movies rival this place, but either way, dummies and dolls scare me to death. Dummies and dolls and clowns. And then to have them trying to kill you? No way. No effing way. I never had dolls growing up because I was scared they'd cut me when I slept. I had stuffed animals, because if they were gonna come alive, they'd defend me, and if they tried to eat me, at least they'd be cute.

1) Paranormal Activity 2
This one made me about pee my pants. Where the first one wasn't so scary until you got home, this one made me TERRIFIED to go home. I literally shook for about two hours after the movie, went to my boyfriends house, where he (also scared crapless) stated, "We're watching a funny movie, and sleeping with the lights on. Whoever falls asleep first, wins." He fell asleep first. I was afraid to leave the bed and go to the bathroom.

The Amityville Horror, and Haunting in Connecticut are also great scary movies. The woman from the Haunting in Connecticut actually came to my school to talk about what actually happened. I still get goosebumps.

And if you're wondering, I haven't forgotten about the post from the race. I just haven't had time to upload the pictures and write about it yet. Should be up Friday!

ALSO--I saw that there is a blog hop, something like "Did I notice your novel" and I think it happens October 17th....Um...Does anyone know who is hosting that one? I can't seem to find it again....(My bad)

    1. I think stuffed teddy bears coming to life might be kind of cool/cute. Although, if they're the freaky ones with the weird eyes and sad-face...then yea, I'll have none of it.

  4. I haven't seen or read any of these, mostly becasue I don't like horror, but perhaps I should take a walk on the scary side sometime...

    1. I'd read Harrison Buergeron (spelling errors everywhere). It's a short story, I don't think it was meant to be "horror" but it's always haunted me..

  5. When I was a teen, all I watched was horror movies, though I ALWAYS his my eyes, when the scary part came. ( I still do)

    But today's movies are so much more scary, I don't get into them as much as I did when I was younger.

    1. Yea, today's movies are awful! I don't think I hid my eyes, but I would definitely cuddle stuffed animals before I went to sleep :)

  7. Have you watched Paranormal Activity 3? Holy heck... they get scarier as they go. Part 4 comes out in a couple of weeks. I shouldn't go see it, but I have to, because I NEED to see how they all correlate together. Yeah, I'm weird. LOL

    Thanks for participating in the meme!

Please know that if you comment and I don't respond, it's not because I don't love you. It's because I don't have wifi, but I do have a bad memory.
