Haunted Open House Blog Hop!

Glad to jump into this Haunted Open House Blog Hop for Halloween in support of one of my favorite writers, Nancy Gideon! For more Tricks and Treats, visit Nancy's Haunted Open House - She'll be there all week with special guests and fun Halloween activities.

My all-time favorite movie is THE HAUNTING – the old 1950’s b&w version, not the newer one. That movie doesn’t need a screamer mask or bloody murders to be scary. I much prefer the “unseen” spirits that lurk dark corners or only as cold vapors. To me that is much more frightening. 

In THE HAUNTING, you never see the ghostly spirits. You only hear muffled voices – and the scariest part for me is when you can hear a spirit’s booming footsteps as it stomps up and down the hallway outside the bedrooms in the haunted mansion – and when that huge bedroom door starts bowing inward, as though the spirit is trying to get inside, that is absolutely chilling and great food for nightmares.

I BELIEVE IN GHOSTS, so to this day that movie scares the crap out of me! As far as scary TV shows, it would have to be SLEEPY HOLLOW. I have always loved the story of The Headless Horseman! My dream is to someday write a really good ghost story! 

My Treat!
