This weeks theme is: Halloween Related Freebie
I’m going for a mixture of everything Halloween related for this week’s topic, from books to movies and tv shows. Some of these I’ve already read/watched, and some are new-to-me. Enjoy…
It may be a little predictable, but Stephen King is making more than one appearance on my list. In fact, the first three to feature are all by this author:
The Shining – Room 217. Need I say more? Years after I first read this book I still remember how scary I found that one particular scene.
The Dark Tower series – This fantasy series has a bit of everything – heroes, villains, monsters, alternate worlds.
IT – Imagine your worst fear. Then imagine a monster that can take the form of your worst fear. Scary stuff.
NOS4R2 by Joe Hill – I read my first Joe Hill recently, The Fireman, and would definitely read another of his books. I’ve heard good things about this vampire tale, so what better time of year to give it a try?
Dracula by Bram Stoker – I love the creepy atmosphere during the first part of the novel, especially the scene where the ghostly ship arrives in Whitby.
The Addams Family
Addams Family Values
The Walking Dead (TV Series)
I’m always ready for new recommendations featuring this kind of theme, so feel free to tell me your Halloween/spooky/gothic favourites in reading and viewing.
